We booked this hotel because it was close to the snow monkeys, but the hotel was a destination in itself. The staff could not have been friendlier or more accommodating. The hotel has two lovely onsens and is next to a street full of other onsens and restaurants. The breakfast was incredible and it was served to us in a private room on the first floor. The onsens were both indoor out door and were very clean. We were greeted with green tea. The futon beds were very comfortable. Traditional robes were provided for us to were in the hotel and to the restaurants and other onsens on the street

Great stay!
Our stay was wonderful. There was a shuttle from the train station and to monkey park. The ryokan was very authentic and hospitable. They welcomed us warmly, giving us an overview of the hotel, area, and recommendations for dinner. The hotel was central, easy to walk to food and other onsen.

You won’t be disappointed
All around incredible stay. Located on the Onsen road, with access to two public baths outside of the hotel, two very well equipped Onsen within the hotel, and the option to reserve a private Onsen as well. Not listed on when booking, but the hotel picked us up from the train station, as well as runs a free shuttle once every morning (940am) to the monkey park. Really nice touch that they should publicize more broadly. Highly recommend getting breakfast and dinner included. Highlight of the experience for me! Relaxing and pleasant stay. Highly recommended, would go back in a heartbeat if we’re ever back in the area.

One of my all time favorite hotel stays!
The most amazing hotel! Traditional Japanese onsen with in room onsen. Yes you pay a little more but this is the place to splurge on your trip. Our room came with dinner and breakfast. I figured maybe buffet food. No way what we got was an elegant traditional 8 course meal in our private dining room. Breakfast was just as lovely also tons of food in our private room. Staff was wonderful. Enough english was understood that we figured everything out. One of my all time favorite hotel stays.

Very Good 8.0
Good for snow monkeys, but misses 9 onsen.
Very good experience and service. Good food. But I was dissapointed that it isn't part of the shibu onsen area. This meant I could not go to the nine public onsen in the area. They did have access to two separate onsen which was nice. The snow monkeys in the park were fantastically cute too.
