          Wonderful stay in traditional ryokan”

          We really enjoyed our stay at Ichinoyu Katei! It was amazing to experience the traditional ryokan. The whole place is beautifully done, the room was spacious and very warm, and we enjoyed sleeping on the futons and wearing the yukata. We opted to have breakfast and dinner which was also an amazing experience - beautiful dining room and we were served multiple dishes, a good chance to try lots of interesting Japanese food. We used the onsen/bath on the roof which was lovely. At this ryokan you can get the key to the public bath houses on the street but we didn't choose to go bathe in any of them. The staff were so lovely - they drove us to the snow monkeys and to the train station. Would highly recommend!!

          Ryokan in Japan”

          My friend and I stayed at Ichinoyu Katei for one night. It is located in a cute area with several shops nearby. If you're looking for a reasonably priced ryokan, Ichinoyu is the place! It is very clean and affordable and we enjoyed our stay here. Note: when staying at any ryokan, always be sure to arrive in time to check-in by 3pm. If you are running late, let them know as they are very punctual and are not keen on you arriving to check in after 3pm unless notified.

          This was only our second stay at a ryokan and the staff were very helpful. They let us check in a little early and when waiting for the shuttle back to Yudanaka station the owner drive us instead since we were early there as well. My wife also loved the baths on the top floor, particularly the outdoor bath as it was nice to have the cooling effect of the mountain air.

          Ichinoyu katei. For shibu onsen and snow monkey”

          I stayed two nights at this hotel. It is very nice inside, clean and quiet. The people who were managing it were very friendly and tried to be as helpful as possible. Some basic spoken English was understood but be prepared to do research Of the area before you get there if you want to get the most out of your stay. You might want to bring some nuts and dried fruits in case you need a snack, especially if new types of foods are an issue with your tastes. The dinner that was prepared for me was extremely well done. I wish I had taken a photo. There were a few tastes and textures that were a little new but overall I enjoyed the meal, ... I am quite set in what I like to eat. The hotel is about a 45 minute walk back from the monkey park and that is all downhill. I would not like walking there with the heavy camera gear I brought., I was offered a free ride in the shuttle which I gladly accepted. I leave with many fond memories.

The room is cozy in traditional Japanese style although we need to shower in the public bath - that’s no problem at all because there were not many customers in the hotel. The food is also good! Overall we had a fabulous experience!

          The lovely staff at this exceptional ryokan made our first trip to an onsen an absolute delight. With little of each others' languages between us, we nonetheless had everything explained to us, how to wear a yukata, and the etiquette of being a guest and how to use the hot baths. Wearing a yukata in the street on our way to the baths is a memory that will stay with us forever. We chose this ryokan because of its proximity to the Jigokudani Monkey Park and that was another wonderful experience - but the ryokan was definitely the highlight!

          We chose to stay here for the location (close to all 9 onsens) and a bit of luxury. The ryokan has a touch of class (in the decor), and the meals are up there with the best of ryokan food (kai-seki cuisine) I've had. There is a ceratin air of formality, but actually, the owners and staff are warm and helpful, making you feel welcome. The public baths upstairs are very clean, and the cooling off area has breat views of the town and mountains beyond. A splendid stay!
