We thought this ryokan was amazing! The location is perfect, in the center of old Nagano and a few minutes walk from the temple (convenient to attend the early morning prayer). The staff was amazingly friendly and helpful. The Japanese breakfast was phenomenal; we didn't try the dinner as we asked for it too late. Note that you need to give the hotel a few days advance notice for meals; they didn't ask us proactively if we were interested in them. The staff was able to recommend other local restaurants for dinner, which was great too. Overall, we loved our stay and wish we could have stayed longer.

My stay far exceeded my expectations. The location and accessibility are excellent. The surrounding are spectacular and basically part of the Temple and most importantly the hotel was spotless and the staff were exceptionally friendly. I was very happy and grateful for my stay. I highly recommend. Rodney-

Our best accommodation experience in Japan by far and the bar was already very high. It is a true gem with comfortable and spacious rooms, very friendly staff and the food is of a very high standard. It felt like a gourmet feast on the first night and then it got even better on the second! The onsen bath was simple but very welcome. And being almost on the steps to the delightful Zenoji temple and gardens was the icing on top of a very delicious cake!

Stay here! Great experience
The hotel qas very clean and well maintained. The family that runs it is incredibly nice and welcoming. The location is fantastic and has free parking a few blocks away. The only slight negative was how bright the room was in the morning but that only affected me from our group and could be fixed with a sleep mask. Highly recommend and will stay there ahain on ouf next visit to Nagano

Very traditional Ryokan with tatami mats floors and futons for sleeping. Great onsen! Right in the heart of the old town and 200m from Zenko-ji Temple

10/10 Exceptional

The building is old, but well maintained. It's a straight 20 minute walk from Nagano station and is located really centrally to a lot of sightseeing spots and tourist attractions. The staff were super welcoming and accommodating. It had a real family run vibe. They were very non-Japanese guest friendly, including tattoos at their hot spring bath. The bath wasn't huge, it could fit four adult men in at once, if you are comfortable being close to each other. The room was comfortable and warm. Towels, razors and hairbrushes were available, but you need to bring other toiletries yourself. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone!
