Traditional Japanese ryokan 10 minutes walk from Yudanaka station. We experienced the outdoor onsen just 100m away from ryokan, it was great! The host is super welcoming, he gave us a ride to snow monkey park on the morning and picked us up after it to drive to the station.
Our first time in a ryokan and we loved it. The room was so beautiful with traditional tatami mat and sliding doors and the most beautiful view of the mountains.
The Western breakfast was delicious, scrambled eggs, toast, cereal, and fresh fruit. The owner was very helpful and booked a private outdoor onsen for me which was lovely. He picked me up at the station and also drove me to the monkey park and picked me back up. His service was amazing. I was travelling alone so it was much appreciated.
Everyone was really friendly and the room was great. Really big too. The baths were great. Really appreciated the lift to / from the monkey park.
We forgot to book breakfast and as we were late checking in we couldn't get breakfast - totally our fault.
The owner Yumoto-san is very friendly and helpful through out our short stay. We also enjoyed the breakfast very much. The place gave us sense of home!
It's a bit of a walk from the station, especially when you have luggages.
