Shimaya had the most accommodating inn with the sweetest staff. The rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable. The bathrooms were the same, spacious and clean. They provide cute Yukatas that you could wear around town and they were so comfortable as well. It's not far from the station at all, it's about a ten minute walk but the manager is more than happy to offer you a ride to and from the station. He also offers drop offs and pick ups to the snow monkey park. The breakfast was delicious and if you're going to other places in Japan, the manager offers recommendations if you ask as well as maps. They also speak English very well! The onsens were very nice, he also offers rides to Shibu. They also have an open air bath that's like a 3 minute walk from the inn, it has pretty look out point where you can get a good view from the city and part of the mountain. Highly recommended, would definitely come here again!
The owner and his wife do everything to make your stay perfect. They have a great onsen although it’s a really really hot one Breakfast was decent with amazing fruits
Sadly we only booked one night, would have been happy to stay a few nights there
Ichiro-san is a great host and made us feel very welcome. The breakfast is well worth the 860¥ in the morning. While we would have loved to partake in the onsite onsen, it was just too hot for us. Everything was pretty much perfect.
This was something that couldn’t be helped, but just a note to tall people: the Japanese style beds are only so tall, so if you are over 6’, your feet may hang off the edge.
Traditional Japanese ryokan 10 minutes walk from Yudanaka station. We experienced the outdoor onsen just 100m away from ryokan, it was great! The host is super welcoming, he gave us a ride to snow monkey park on the morning and picked us up after it to drive to the station.
Our first time in a ryokan and we loved it. The room was so beautiful with traditional tatami mat and sliding doors and the most beautiful view of the mountains.
