The owners are very nice and courteous. The rooms where beautiful and clean. The owners drove us to the monkey park and to the train station. We could use the Onsen when ever we wanted and even reservate it for private use.
Friendly and helpful. Mr and Mrs Yumoto were very accommodating. Mr Yumoto drove us too and from the Monkey Park and helped organise us to catch the bus to Nozawa Onsen instead of having to get back on the train. Loved our stay! Such a traditional ryokan with the perfect facilities. Highly recommend private open air Onsen too.
The owners are lovely and very helpful. He drove me and my brother to the entrance of the Monkey Park. The room was very clean and beautiful. Ones was lovely and we could reservated just for us during 40min. I recommend Shimaya 100%.
Nice traditional ryokan. Owner was very helpful, driving me to and from the monkey park - he even picked me up from there after I spent an additional night at another hotel in the snow monkey park, which was very good of him. They also offer to lend you boots to hike through the snow to the monkey park - I had suitable boots so didn't need this, but this would have been good otherwise.
The owner was really nice and accommodating. The property is traditional style but has everything you need except a lift. The onsen was lovely and hot, got my money’s worth.
The only downside was no lift but I’m not too bothered by that being a solo traveler.
