Amazing Service!

Onsen (hot spring) in house, the professionalism and the service of the staff
Incredible hosts. Ichero and his wife bend over backwards to make your stay as comfortable as possible. He will drive you to the monkey park, train station or Shibu Onsen at a moments notice. Stay here for the service alone. The location isn't ideal for accessing the 9 hot springs at Shibu Onsen, but the in-house onsen and Ichero's private onsen down the block (which he rents out for only 600 Yen) are just as nice as any in the Shibu Onsen area.

Super Ryokan experience

Staff, Ryokan experience, Onsen
My stay at Shimaya was excellent. The owner, was super hospitable. He offered to take us to Jogokudani Monkey Park for free and then pick us up. He was also happy to recommend places to visit and to suggest alternative routes to our trip. All ideas were very valuable. Very comfortable room offering a genuine tradicional Japanese Ryokan experience with all comfort that the 21st Century traveller requires, i.e heating, toilet in the room, TV,etc. Highly recommended!!

Snow Monkey & Shiga Kogen Shimaya

Free shuttle return from snow monkey entrance and Yudanaka stations, nice in-house onsen, staffs were attentive and helps you plan your itinerary
ALmost everything mentioned in the reviews are true. Free apples are available everyday just at the entrance, washing machine and microwave at 2nd floor. Onsens need to be tempered with cold water before use. Few restaurants nearby the station I am gonna touch more on the skiing/snowboarding part. Shiga Kogen has more local feel. Hakuba is more like an Aussies town. Shiga Kogen has 90% of skiers compared to snowboarders. Shiga Kogen also has very limited english instructors available. I only manage to find Sugiyama ski school with English instructor. So plan and book ahead. You need to book as private lesson to get the English instructor. Cost is 26000 Yen for 3 hours. From 9am to 12noon. Usually it's enough. I managed to learn up to linking up my turns. By the way, because Shiga Kogen is usually skiers so it's even more difficult to get snowboard instructors. So please plan ahead. Shiga Kogen is a big area. I took advise from Shimaya owner Mr Yumoto to go to Ichinose. Ichinose is a fantastic ski area for all levels especially for beginners. My advise is to go to Ichinose family ski lift for beginners as the slopes is not as steep. Whole day Ichinose lift pass will cover 5 areas of ski lifts which is more than enough. Ski lifts starts at 8am, closes at around 4.20pm. Theres quite a few rental shops around. Usually it's Snowcan. Prices are usually fixed, no bargain. Theres also a nice canteen at Ichinose diamond area. Reasonable price. There are also medium size lockers available just near to the canteen for 200 Yen to keep your belongings. Bus departs from Yudanaka station to Ichinose in selected timings. Ask Mr Yumoto for the timetable. He will fetch you to the station. Cost is 770 Yen one way. On selected buses, you need to transfer at Haisuke but its easy as the transfering bus is just next to it. If unsure just ask the bus driver. They understand English

Excellent stay

Good location, good value, helpful owner
Yumoto san picked us up at the train station on schedule and made our stay very comfortable. It snowed heavily during our 4 days here and our trips to Jigokudani and Shikagogen were wonderful. The Japanese styled rooms were nice and the onsen was hot! Yumoto san was very helpful. Let us use his snow boots and helped us with transportation. This place is highly recommended.
