Koishiya Ryokan, Yamanouchi
Great place!
Shuttle service from train station, to area onsens, the Jigokundani Monkey Park and back to the train station. Stayed in traditional tatami mat room, was very comfortable. The walls are thin and others can be loud, nothing some ear plugs couldn't fix. Overall, the staff was very friendly and helpful. Food from the restaurant was delicious. I will definitely go back!

A favorite in Japan
This is the second time staying at Koishiya, and every time, we have been so impressed by the high level of hospitality, and friendliness of the staff. The rooms are charming - traditional Japanese tatami... we recommend the mountain room for its views! It is so close to the snow monkey park, and they offer rides to onsens. Daisuke even so kindly offered to drive us to a restaurant in the next town. This place is very special and we would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a unique off the beaten path experience. Thank you! Merci!

Japanese comfort
Cultural experience - sleep on futons you set up on the floor. The bathrooms are on 3 for guys, 2 for girls and 1 for both. Showers are on 1. The steps are steep so take care when walking. The attached restaurant is great! It's not typical Japanese food but the way they cook Japanese spaghetti was wonderful! The staff was very helpful and we were welcomed at 4pm... strict check in time. I loved our stay and would stay again if in the area.

Place was great. Cafe down stairs was delicious. Only problem was the bus. I know bugs come in for summer but it was winter during my visit

Great great hospitality!
If you decide to walk from the train station, then follow Google Maps and it will take you about 30 minutes. As I was informed that in fact you can contact the Ryokan and they can help set up a pick up service. Or if you prefer taxi then it costs around 1500 yens to the ryokan. We were greeted by Shinji. His English is excellent and he is very informative on the area like where to eat, which onsen to go to, or how to get to the monkey park. Overall, the room is cozy and has all the necessities you need. Not so lavish but it is a great place for the price. However, what makes us want to come back is the hospitality of the hosts. They can not be anymore helpful. Unfortunately, just our luck, the day we paid a visit, the monkeys did not come down to the hot springs. What can you do? Sometimes things don't go the way you want to but that just means we will have to pay a visit back in the future.
