              Great place, great location and great staff. It is an 170 years old Japanese inn (Ryokan) and the location is perfect, fust on the main street that leads to the famous Zenkoji-temple. Rooms are Japanese style, but very nice and comfortable. There is only one room with shower and toilet, that is the one we have got, for an extra $10 per person, it is worth it. All other rooms have a common-shower room, which is nice too. Actually, you can have it al for yourself usually and it is with a big hot pool. Breakfast was very good.

              On the main road of Nagano, very close the Buddhist temple. Had very steep stairs (3 flights to get to our room on top floor, not suitable for young children. Ryokan is older but still authentic and comfortable. Really enjoyed our stay.

              Staff/owners, interesting architecture, spacious.

              This was my second ryokan stay and like the first it was brilliant. The owners are lovely and whilst their English wasn't great it was easy to communicate with them. The onsen was not as large as others i have visited but it is still a decent sized onsen. The building is a cool old maze of stairs and platforms that give much character. Located half way between the train station and the temple you will have easy access to Nagano.

              Traditonal Japanese Inn”

              It's very very Japanese!!

              The Inn is located about 20 minutes from the Nagano train station. It's run by an old Japanese couple who speak very little Japanese. But they are incredibly hospitable as most Japanese are. However, the inn, is rather old. There are no en suite bathrooms or toilets. The toilets and baths are commonly shares. The tatami rooms are old, but it does give it a certain charm! It's almost like entering a time warp and staying in the past. Very quaint. But a tad expensive given that the inn is so old. Only breakfast is included. But that is not a problem as there are loads of eateries in Nagano city!

No evening meals provided. Very close to other dinning options. Heavy suitcases can prove to be difficult to manage in ascending and descending from room. Curfew at 11 p.m.

              we spent 3 nights in this lovely place, we stuffed up the booking and arrived a day early, the staff gladly looked after us. the hotel is more like a hostel with a japanese feel, the staff are beutifull and are very very helpfull. all that is needed is available, internet (free), coin laundry, etc. we even got a loan of a pram wich was a great help. the hotel is close walkin from train station and close to the main temple in town, there are also plenty of shops, caffees and resturants very close by. we would definately use this hotel again. the mens bathroom "onsen" could use a clean up but the females is much better. we found the hotel great with a small child as we were always on the floor sleeping and eating.

              Really enjoyed this ryokan at a reasonable price and only a short 100 yen bus ride away from Nagano station with a bus stop metres from the front door. Rooms are comfortable - 8 tatami was ample & while shared bathing & facilities may not be to everyone's liking they were clean & basic. Breakfast was traditional & substantial. The owners were helpful, provided good service & spoke some english. Free wireless internet was welcome. Overall I would recommend this to anyone keen for traditional accommodation
