              Wonderful service, food, and onsen. Staff could not have been kinder. Stayed at another, more expensive, Ryokan later in the trip and Jinpyokaku takes the cake! Highly recommended!

              Very peaceful location high up the mountains. It's very close monkey park. Staff were super attentive and felt like they are at our service at all times. Excellent food prepared by the owner who is 66 years old! Cannot believe the amount of food we ate but we couldn't stop because it was simple yet super delicious. Onsens were quite so we got the public onsen all to ourselves at night.

              It was a shame we could only stay at this guesthouse for one night as we enjoyed it so much, the staff are lovely, the room was huge with a nice private onsen bath and the food was excellent. They made my birthday visit very special. The hotel is well located for the walk to the snow monkey park and the staff were helpful with transport to the local station in the morning. We had a lovely time here and left feeling very relaxed.

              Serenity at its best”
              Everything about Jinpyokaku leads to a great experience. From the moment you are picked up until the time you are dropped back you have a feeling that you are being treated like royalty. It is so peaceful that you need to remember to breathe. There are only 6 rooms at the Honten, so you have this feeling of complete privacy. Both the diner and breakfast meals are excellent and would put many a high end restaurant to shame. The staff (especially Nishi) go out of their way to make you feel comfortable without getting in your way. I would highly recommend staying at Jinyokaku if you are looking at somewhere in the area.

              We were at first apprehensive about the price, but after the stay, we must say it was worth every penny! Having stayed at various high end ryokans in Japan, Jinpyokaku is easily the best hands down. The service of the staff is impeccable, yet personable and genuine. The age of the ryokan adds to its charm, yet it is so well maintained and clean. The staff even quietly cleaned our shoes overnight to our pleasant surprise! The host was ever so patient, polite and helpful, without being overbearing and intruding our space. Every meal is an art, both visually and in the gastronomic sense. The shinshu beef, mountain trout and apple juice are out of this world! Facilities wise: the wifi is fast, in-room Yamaha sound system superb. The room was huge, even has both indoor and outdoor private onsens. The toiletries are of the highest quality. The futons are wonderful to sleep in.

              Best ryokan ever”
              Oh my god , this ryokan is the one of the best ryokan we ever been. The staffs picked us up at the train station. They gave us lots of delicious food for dinner and breakfast. Very nice onsen. Because they only have 6 rooms so you wont seeing another guest very often while using their public onsen. I can use public onsen just like my own private onsen. But the location is kinda far and nothing to see around the hotel except monkey forest. Well you can always relaxing your body in the room 😍

              WOW”
              Service, comfort, location
              Everything about Jinpyokaku exceeded all expectations of my group (4 people ages 30-32). They gave us a complimentary shuttle from Yudanaka station to the hotel. It's location is ideal, just a couple hundred meters from the entrance to Jigokudani park. The hotel fully embodies the subtle beauty of classic Japanese architecture--the word charming comes to mind, but no words are truly appropriate. After returning from the monkey park, we enjoyed the fabulous onsen. The only knock on it is that there is a large hotel overlooking the mixed-gender bath, but other than that, the aesthetic is amazing and we all left feeling completely restored. Dinner (included in the price) was a phenomenal experience. There were something like 15-20 different dishes, all using remarkably fresh, local ingredients and presented beautifully. The meal culminates in local, apple-fed beef shabu shabu. Simply incredible. When we got back in our room (which was more than big enough for 4 large Americans), the futons were already fully set up. I was worried that my companions would have a hard time sleeping in traditional Japanese style, but these were by far the thickest, most comfortable futons I'd ever slept on. To top it off, they place a flagon of hot onsen water in the futon, so it's warm and cozy when you slip in. It was 8:30pm, and I literally fell asleep within 2 minutes, then woke up at 6am feeling like a million bucks. Another dip in the onsen was followed by a luxurious breakfast featuring hijiki, egg/enoki tart, roasted radish, rice, and about 6 other dishes, tea, coffee, etc. I give Jinpyokaku my strongest possible recommendation. My companions relied on me to show them an authentic Japanese hospitality experience, and Jinpyokaku delivered beyond my wildest expectations. It's an absolutely world-class establishment.
