First Trip to Yudanaka Nagano to Snow Money Town
This is our first trip to see the snow monkey park at Yudanaka-Nagano, along the way we decided to include an onsen stay . This hotel at Shibu Onsen Inchinoyu Katei offers free roundabout shuttle from/to Yudanaka station and hotel. However, you will need to make call arrangement with the help from the native jap staff from tourist information counter located at Yudanaka station. Do make use of google translate to help you in the process as the native jap has minimum understanding of english. You can also pay a visit to the snow monkey park using the bus service (for snow monkey 2 days pass) and it is a short bus journey. For convenience of travelling light, it is recommended that you temporarily deposit your bags at station and it is 500 yen for baggage deposit. Note that you will need to walk up the trekking pathway to snow monkey park and it will be 40 mins on foot from where the bus alights you at the bus stop. The overall experience for the hotel onsen is an eye opener as you get to experience local traditional jap food and culture. The food is more to a healthier diet and taste. Service is excellent from a warm welcome by front desk to the servers at their kitchen. They provide extra mile service and care to the customers. Do enquire with them on the do's and don't 's for first timer use of onsen. Do not overly soak yourself in the hot waters as your body might not be able to take it.

Wonderful place
Staff were so nice and kind. The place was great and in the great location. We definitely want to come back and recommend people. The hot tub was too hot.

Loved the staff and room. The showers are with the Onsen so it’s a little strange as a American used to so much privacy but luckily there was only one time there was another women out of the three nights we stayed. Food is all Japan style but amazing. Loved our stay

Amazing traditional Ryokan!!!
This hotel was AMAZING!!! The whole area was great, we did the whole 9 Onsen thing, had the Kaiseki dinner and breakfast the next morning (there was coffee!!!) and then went to see the snow monkeys (which were probably my favorite part of the entire trip). The staff was absolutely perfect, extremely helpful and did even more than we could ask for. It took a bit of effort to get up here (check out the shibu onsen website for train dets) but was completely worth it. We would definitely stay here again. Also, when you get to the train station in Shibu, go to the information kiosk and tell them you'd like them to call Ichinoyu to come pick you up - apparently this is totally normal. They came about 5 minutes later to drive us to the hotel. And then the next morning they drove us up to the snow monkeys. All free. Absolutely stay here, it will totally make your trip!!!

Everything you could possibly want from a traditional Japanese inn. Everything was second to none. A real cultural experience. Can’t really put into words how special this place is
