The staff is what makes staying at this ryokan an outstanding experience”
We stayed at Tawaraya Ryokan for two nights, and could not have asked for a more perfect experience. While the ryokan in itself may not look extraordinary at first glance, its staff makes it just that. They are absolutely amazing, so helpful, sweet and thougthful. One of the best "hotel" experiences I have ever had, although I would not call this a hotel. We felt perfectly taken care of upon entering the doors. The staff knew exactly what we wanted at all times, they gave us a ride to the snow monkey park, they reserved a table at a Michelin star restaurant in Tokyo for us, remembering to tell them about my shellfish allergy of course, they even cleaned off and dried our shoes after the visit to the monkey park, as they had become wet and dirty. We had both breakfast and dinner at Tawaraya and both were delicious and attractively presented. Among the highlights was an egg cooked in the hot spring water! The onsen was so nice and relaxing, we even got to experience it while it was snowing! It was easy to book the outside onsen for private use both evenings we were there. When we checked out we received the most beautiful mobile made of origami swans. Thank you! They also gave us a ride up to the train station. I would love to go back!

The best”
This place is fantastic. Being able to walk in from the snow and jump in an onsen is go good. The staff were lovely and the rooms spacious and comfortable too. It's also only a 25 min bus to Ryoo ski park if you want to fit that in to the trip. I'd recommend Tawaraya to anyone.

I have never given five stars to an establishment before, but this traditional Japanese inn deserves it. The gracious hostess is so kind and attentive. Highly recommended.

Great place, lovely staff, awesome breakfast”
The place is close to the station and the bus takes you to the surroundings easily. The staff is super friendly and takes care of you. I loved the traditional breakfast and the tatami rooms. The onsen is situated in a lovely garden. I would definitely recommend if you are looking for a Japanese ryokan experience.

Very nice and clean ryokan with onsens”
Short walk (5 min.) to the train station, but they also have a shuttle. Staff was especially friendly and helpful. Suggested outstanding places to eat. Great place to stay to see the snow monkeys.

A nice weekend retreat at Yudanaka”
Indoor and outdoor onsen, yummy japanese breakfast, friendly staff
It was a great weekend stay at Yudanaka. Arrived the hotel in early afternoon before the check-in time at 3pm. Very clear instruction to guests who arrive early to leave their baggage at the lobby, though no one is around. The room (tatami-style) is spacious, enough for 4 persons. (Note: the room is only with toilet and washing basin, no bathroom attached, bath is taken at the onsen.) Guests from each room are given 30-min session private use of the outdoor onsen starting from 7pm. The outdoor onsen is also opened at certain time of the day for ladies only, gentlemen only as well as mixed bath sessions. Besides, this hotel also has indoor onsen, of course, ladies and gentlemen separated. The staff is friendly and could speak simple English. The Japanese breakfast is delicious and healthy.
