    This ryokan is just perfect. The owners are great and the little town which is close to nagano is sweet and charming. If you want to experience a good onsen in Japan go for this accommodation.

    Tyler and his wife were warm and helpful couple. He was prompt to assist and gave us a brief introduction of Nagano and the onsen town. He even made tea for us upon our arrival which made us felt welcome. We especially liked our name tag hung outside our Ryokan room which made the whole experience personalized. He out in effort to make his guests feel welcome.

    I was a little worried when I arrived in Chikuma since the place was in the country side but in the end I had a great time. Tyler and his wife were very hands on in running this ryokan. They were very helpful and accommodating. The private onsen was great and very relaxing. I did a walking tour with Tyler together with a TV crew as they were featuring him on their show. The walking tour was simple but I got great insights on the lives/livelihood of people in Chikuma. It also includes a "casual tea ceremony." I had breakfast and dinner in the ryokan. They happy accommodated my request (food restrictions) and prepared a very traditional kaiseki. Highly recommend

    The inn provides a small onsen but its hot spring water is great, and the inn owner and his spouse are friendly and thoughtful towards the guest needs. Highly recommend to those who want a feeling of home.

    Thank you for your stay, and for your kind words. We are grateful you made the effort to get off the beaten path and come to our onsen town Togura-Kamiyamada here in Chikuma City. With having a native English speaker as the owner, it helps make our traditional onsen inn foreigner-friendly. For travelers who want to experience staying at an authentic ryokan but want the comfort of English-speaking staff, then Kamesei is perfect!

    Great Ryokan Experience”

    We planned our stay here even though it was out of the way after seeing raving reviews online. Indeed Kamesei Ryokan does not disappoint. Mr Tyler was a great host during our stay. For the first day there we alighted at the wrong station and he came over to pick us despite it being quite far away from the ryokan. And he sent us to the station the next day. There is a private bath which you can book at the counter while checking it. It was the first I've been in an onsen. Now I'm addicted. Only regret I have is not being able to stay for more days. The kiseki dinner was a treat too!

    Thank you for coming and enjoying our onsen inn. It took a bit of sleuthing work, but we figured out your arrival station. FYI, the closest station is called Togura on the Shinano Railway Line. By local train, it is 4 stops / 15 min. from Ueda or 25 min. from Nagano, the two closest stops on the Hokuriku Shinkansen. Thank you also for trying our chef's kaiseki-style dinner. We highly recommend it to our guests to fully appreciate their ryokan experience. Our chef's version is quite a creative take on Nagano's mountain cuisine, and features seasonal ingredients. Hopefully some day you can come again.

    Традиционная Япония - очень холодно и дорого”

    Останавливались на 2 ночи ради горячих источников и традиционного японского завтрака/ужина. Сам отель находится вдоль дороги - рядом есть несколько ресторанов и магазин, так как в самом отеле все нужно заранее заказывать и недешево. На входе сменили обувь на резиновые тапки и пошли в наш номер на 2 этаж (лифта нет). Температура в отеле почти как на улице (в марте это около 0 градусов), отапливается только комната где спишь и то - я с трудом настроил кондиционер на полную мощность. Хозяева помогали, как могли, несли чемоданы, помогли с прокатом автомобиля, спасибо им за это. Хотелось бы, чтобы они привели в порядок свой онсен (баня на горячем источнике), так как он совсем разваливается, хотя возможно, это у них такие понятия о традиционной Японии.
