  • Koishiya ryokan is a really nice place, the room was beautiful and I had a great time going to the 9 onsen. The staff was wonderful, picking me up when I came in and getting me to the station with my luggage when I left.

  • Such a wonderful little (yet surprisingly big) place to stay if your headed skiing or, like us, to see the snow monkeys. The setting is absolutely stunning and the guys here go above and beyond to help. The rooms are spotless and cosy, we had never slept on a futon before but it was such a nice experience - the idiot proof instructions make it easy to set up. The restaurant / cafe area has a great social feel and the food was amazing. I would highly recommend walking from the station to the Ryoken as there is so much beauty in the area. We visited the private onsen as it came recommended and it was so worth it! Thank you so much for our night away from the hustle and bustle of the big cities.

  • This is a very cute house. Although the toilet and bathroom are shared, they are not crowded at all. The open-air wind is so beautiful. Although it is not in the house, it is very convenient to have a car to pick it up. The food in the restaurant is delicious. The reception staff at the front desk are so cute. They can speak English and Chinese in simple Chinese and Japanese. It is a good place to recommend to friends!

  • Andi's Ryokan is amazing! We stayed for two nights. During the day Ando dropped us at the station to go and see the snow monkeys, with great instructions. Then he picked us up later on. It was so easy! The onsen was lovely, and he was happy to book a private session for us. As two of the onsens were closed for repairs we visited the public onsen next door, a wonderful view into local Japanese life. The food was delicious, although I the notification of my (minor) allergy wasn't understood, so be aware to triple check! Otherwise it was great! We had such a lovely time and Ando was so helpful! We'll be back!

  • Great service with drivers and incredible food

    Dexter2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • The quality of this Japanese style is second to none, from the moment we arrived to the morning we left the quality of service was terrific. Although there on hot spring bath was being repaired on the first day, we were provided entry into the public bath right next door. The quality of the traditional Japanese cuisine for dinner and was exceptional, breakfast was also very good. The traditional Japanese style room was quite large and very comfortable and the beds were laid out whilst we were at dinner. If you want to experience traditional Japanese hospitality, quality accommodation in a idyllic location and where your every need is taken care of I would highly recommend it. You will not be disappointed.

    Neil & Lily2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay at Ryokan Warobino. The staff went above and beyond to make us comfortable. Pro’s:The ryokan is situated in the countryside outside of Nagano. There are 4 onsens on the property. There is a private one that you can rent by the hour. There’s a super cute ski hill 20 min away. Con’s: That we couldn’t stay longer. Thanks again!!

    Melissa + Matt2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • If you are looking for an authentic ryokan experience away from tourists, book this place immediately. The complimentary shuttle was a huge plus, it is a bit of a trip out going from Nagano station on the local line to the station where the host picks you up, but totally worth it. The inn keepers will also bring you back and forth from the station that takes you to see the snow monkeys if you want but the times are limited to their regular shuttle schedule (10AM out of inn, 4 or 4:30 pick ups at station). Definitely make time for a dinner and breakfast as part of your stay, the cost is extra but you get a unique and thoughtfully prepared meal. The private onsen looking over the mountain is an unforgettable experience. We cannot recommend this experience enough!

    Abigail2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay and Ando and team really went out of their way to make us feel special. Would highly recommend a stay. Amazing food, amazing location anf amazing staff.

    Olof2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Is a place that would highly recommend to stay The rooms are spacious, clean, comfortable, warm and would like to recommend. The onsen is beautiful and very private. If there is a chance we will definitely go back.

    Nuntawat2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Ando went above and beyond to ensure we had a great trip! Amazing hospitality and amazing meals! Onsens were perfect way to unwind and we were lucky enough to see the snow! Once again thank you Ando for such a wonderful time!

  • Amazing hospitality, great place if you want to experience a traditional ryokan and the surrounding onsens, very comfortable rooms.

    Ethan2020-01-30T00:00:00Z
  • This was the perfect spot to stay and relax for my 2 days in Shibu Onsen. Aki and his family are impeccable hosts - always willing to help and give advice. The room was warm, and their onsen baths are very nice and clean. I can also highly recommend the meals there. Although the dinner seems pricey, it's the right price for what you get considering Japanese prices, and the breakfast is excellent. Altogether an awesome stay!!!

    Nicholas2020-01-21T00:00:00Z
  • Staying here was a highlight of our trip! The staff were all very friendly, the meals were great, and the rooms were comfortable in winter. We also really enjoyed the onsen. The host offered to drive us to snow monkey park and the station, but we decided to walk to explore the town. Everything is in walking distance, which was nice.

    Caitlin2020-01-18T00:00:00Z
  • Akira-san and his entire family are very friendly and helpful. They truly care for their guests and offered rides to and from the train station and to the monkey park. The space was beautiful, and the onsen was convenient and great for relaxation. Highly recommend!

    Kyle2020-01-17T00:00:00Z
  • We had an amazing time at the ryokan and the family there were very friendly and dedicated to giving us an authentic ryokan experience. We were also given transport to and from Yudanaka station as well as drop-off at the entrance to the snow monkey park! Amazing host!

    Tony2020-01-14T00:00:00Z
  • This is an amazing place to stay! A must visit experience. The hosts are so awesome.

    Will2020-01-07T00:00:00Z
  • Akira and Uniko were exceptional hosts. This authentic Ryokan Experience of Japanese culture was so worth it. We had a very nice traditional meal at a local restaurant just a few doors away but if you do stay here you absolutely should book and enjoy a dinner and a breakfast. They were amazing. The Onsen was a welcome treat at the end of the day. Akira was generous to pick us up and drop us back the the railway station as well as take us to the Snow Monkeys. We could not recommend this more highly. 5+ stars

  • Great hostel! Provides mixed dorms as well as private rooms, has a bar with electronic darts, a nice cozy lounge area, and they also offer breakfast and lunch service. Really conveniently location if you are planning on visiting Snow Monkey Park or the nearby mountains. The staff all speak great English which made checking in a breeze. Would definitely recommend if you are traveling through the area.

    博亮2020-01-25T00:00:00Z
  • I usually avoid hostels, but in this area it's hard to get something private unless you want to spend lots of money for a hotel. Surprisingly, it was good. The staff is very friendly and helpful. I was in a 16 people dormitory, but on both nights just shared the room with one person. Only downside is the room temperature in winter. The heater goes off after 3 hours, so you'll wake up in a freezing room.

    Thanh-Trong2020-01-17T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful place! It's so full of character and charm, I definitely want to come back next time I'm in Nakano. ❤ Note for future travelers, because of the building's age, it's a bit chilly in winter. Dont be like me and forget to pack super warm sleep/lounge wear! 😅

    Kayla2019-12-26T00:00:00Z
  • Super clean and tidy hostel. Only a few minutes walk from the train station and easy connection to the monkey park and hot springs. Staff is really friendly and helpful. Thanks for the stay!

  • Comfortable and welcoming place and host

    Jaydon2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • Yoshirou was friendly and warm. He picked us up from the local station and drove us to the house. He made us tea and we drank it in the lovely common space in front of the fire. Our room was very cute and warmed quickly with the heater. Yoshirou offered to drive us to local onsen and restaurant streets. We chose to walk to the nearest onsen for a bath (5-10min wander). The onsen seemed to be ok for a single point 20cm tattoo but we didn't see an official policy so your mileage might vary. Afterward Yoshirou drove us to around the station where we had dinner. Although the streets were very quiet during the day, at night there were several restaurants open. Hakko was delicious and a little expensive, and D-Line was a lively bar with lots of types of food. When we were finished we wrang Yoshirou and he picked us up quickly. We had a great time.

    Jake2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • The host is a very nice person. The station pick-up is very beautiful and will take you to the nearby hot spring and monkey park. Finally, I will pick you up at the park and return to the station.

    Angus2020-01-22T00:00:00Z
  • I like this homestay very much and can experience traditional Japanese rural homes. The landlord Mr. Fang Lang is very friendly! I recommend to all tourists who want to live in Yudanaka! Much liked the place, experiencing the most typical Japanese rural style living! Host Yoshirou San is a really friendly and nice person, I would recommend his place to anyone who wants to stay at Yodanaka for Shiga Kogen and Monkey Park!

    Arthur2019-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • The owner is very hospitable, kind, helpful. I met at the station in my car, drove to the monkey park. The rooms are clean, the house is cozy, the wood is heated, you feel at home. We advise everyone to visit this Guest House !!!!

    Iuliia2019-12-19T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely the best overall accommodation you could wish for in such a place! An old wooden converted cafe with a log burning fire, incredible value for money for that region.

    Tom2019-12-14T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to get away from the hustle and bustle of the cities. Yoshirou is a super host that try’s to make your stay as good as it can be. Great food, great service and great location!!

  • Awesome place very close to the station. A bit cold but thats most likely because of the thin walls. Very convenient location though

    Nilan2020-01-07T00:00:00Z
  • Incredible hospitality! The typhoon hit on my way to Nakano, but my hosts came and picked me up to save me from having to miss a night of accommodation. Lovely place too!

    Dan2019-10-14T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed at Zen Hostel in the middle of Super Typhoon Hagibis so we were very grateful that we could be warm, safe, and comfortable. The common areas of the hostel are very nice, and we loved the pond feature off of the lounge. Everything was very clean and convenient, and typhoon proof, so 100% would recommend! ^_^

  • Wonderful kind, thoughtful host, gorgeous location, amazing breakfast (definitely get it!) And really close to jigokudani. I wish I had stayed there 2 nights instead of 1! Than you yoshirou.

    Ariella2019-08-16T00:00:00Z
  • Mr. Yoshirou is one of, if not, the best hosts I have ever been allowed to stay with. He was kind enough to pick up me and my friends from the train station, give us a ride back for the onsen (which was also spectacular and extremely affordable), and in the morning he even made us breakfast (for a small charge that he OFFERS once you check in). The breakfast itself was absolutely astounding and beyond worth the price we paid. To top that off he was so very kind and gave us so many tips about the area. I would happily stay with Yoshirou again the next time I come visit Nagano or Japan in general. Thank you very much!

    Bena2019-05-27T00:00:00Z
  • Wow there are so many good things to say about Yoshirou's place!! I was blown away by how wonderful his hospitality was and how great the space was! Yoshirou went above and beyond, you won't regret staying here. First, Yoshirou was kind enough to pick us up from Yudanaka station late at night (when the last train of the day ran). The room was spacious and clean with a heater (Yoshirou also provides heated water bottles that goes at the foot of the futon) since it does get chilly at night. There is a private toilet and sink but no shower. However, Yoshirou does provide drop off and pick up for 2 onsens that are close by. We really enjoyed Kaede No Yu! Please try Yoshirou's great breakfast! For 800 yen, it is a steal, delicious, and varied! Along with the meal, he offers water, hot green tea, and hot coffee. One of our breakfasts included fruits, udon, pickled radish, and salad. Another breakfast included tempura/rice, miso soup, and fruit. We mentioned to Yoshirou about wanting to see the cherry blossoms, and he gave us a fantastic recommendation at Garyu Park in Suzaka city (easy to get to via train and a few stations away from Yudanaka station). On the morning of check out, I was running late but Yoshirou was very kind and drove us to Yudanaka station as quickly as he could and helped us with carrying luggage to the train. Overall, he is a fantastic host with a great space and recommendations and would do anything to make your stay comfortable!! Highly recommend!! Thank you for a good time in Nagano Yoshirou!!! We will definitely come back next time we are in Japan!

  • Yoshirou is the sweetest! He will pick you up/drop you off anywhere you need to go. Definitely pay the small cost for breakfast, it's a delicious feast! He gave us a good recommendation of when we should specifically see the monkeys and go to onsen and it worked out lovely! It was a bit difficult to communicate but we used translate app and were able to find out a bit about each other too :) we really loved our stay here. The futons were comfortable and the beds were warm even though it was snowing! Yoshirou was responsive and would pick us up within ten minutes from letting him know we were ready for a ride.

  • It’s one of the best places we’re we have been. It’s so beautiful! You can go to the snow monkeys and also go skiing or boarding. The only thing is you don’t have a shower in the room. You have to go to a onsen, but it’s ok.

    Lianne2019-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Honami Kaido Guesthouse was our favourite accomodation in Japan. Yoshirou is an excellent host and sitting by the log fire, drinking hot chocolate, with views to the snow capped mountains, was pretty hard to beat. It was a much more personalised experience of Japan and one we loved. It is a long walk into Yudanaka but this is no problem as Yoshirou was happy to give us a lift to the onsen, the train station and even snow monkey park. It was great as we were able to be there before the crowds. There is no shower at Yoshiro's but the onsen in town is a great experience and the locals were so friendly that we were glad the hostel didn't have a shower. I would thoroughly recommend staying at Yoshirou's and we would definitely make an effort to stay again should we return to Japan. Thanks Yoshirou for your kindness and efforts to overcome the language barrier!

  • It is a repeater. The location is close to Yubatake, and there are plenty of restaurants. I like the hot springs where you can enter by time, and you can spend as much as you like at home. Comment response is very fast and safe ♪

    Rika2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Tomoyo-san is very hospitable. I enjoyed my stay tremendously. Drink sachets and a simple breakfast is provided. For me, the best feature is the private bath, if you do not wish to go to public onsen.

    Diane2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • It is a very good place to relax and access the Kusatsu Onsen.

    鴻良2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • It is a house in a temple, about 5 minutes on foot from Yubatake. The host was quick and helpful, the amenities were fine, and the bread was served for breakfast. There are also kotatsu in the room, so it is recommended for those who like Japanese rooms with a focus on cospa!

    Ayano2020-02-02T00:00:00Z

    Chezka2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • The BEST AirBnB host I have ever met! The sweet couple went above and beyond in accomodating me. From picking me up at the Station to dropping me off to the snowmonkey resort, providing landmark spots and them booking me for my bus for my departure date as i cannot speak japanese. If you ever want to visit the snowmonkey i highly recommend going with this one because they will pick you up and drop you off to the place which will actually save you money and they will also help you beyond their duties as a host. I am truly touch by their kindness. The whole facility is also beautiful <3

    Cindy2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Very clean, comfortable space

    Melissa2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • I had a perfect stay at Mr Shuichi’s guesthouse. The room was clean and in good size. The blankets were warm and the beds were super comfy. The night and morning snow view outside the window was fantastic. Mr Shuichi responded immediately to our questions and offered to pick us up at the station as we did not rent the car. He also drove us to the nearby restaurant and local onsen at night. The sukiyaki place he recommended was amazing and we loved it very much. He also mapped out the detail route of our next destination and drove us to the station, making sure we are in perfect hands with the tickets before leaving. I highly recommend Mr Shuichi’s guesthouse if you are travelling to Nagano. :)

    Magdalena2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent stay. Very homely feel with Mr Shuichi San and wife taking care of you. Let's start of by reviewing the accommodation. 5 stars for the cleanliness. Very comfortable beds and decent size room. Mr Shuichi San takes care of very small details like making sure that the bathrooms are cleaned again after the previous guest have used it before your use. There were several Japanese travellers, friends, mother daughters, during our stay. I always think that if locals choose to stay, it must be good, and I am right. Mr Shuichi San offered to pick us up at the train station upon our arrival as we did not rent a car. He also offered to drive us straight to the snow monkey park the next morning. Really very thoughtful as getting there by ourselves may not be easy. On the last day as we checked out, Mr Shuichi San even helped us mapped out the detailed travel schedule to Masumoto castle and Daio Wasabi farm, evening planning some time for lunch. Recognizing that we are on a very tight schedule, we couldn't have manage to make the round trip within a day without his detailed planning. Overall a very excellent stay. Can't ask for more.

    Chester2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect place in rural japan with an incredibly hospitable host. Highly recommend

    Michael2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • Suichi has a lovely home and he is indeed a lovely host! It's a shame that we did not get to see the snow monkeys in autumn (we studied the webcam for 2 weeks, and not many monkeys came down!) but still, our stay at Kanoka guesthouse was great. Suichi went through all the trouble to plan our plan B trip to Kurobe Gorge and to Shirakawago according to the timetables of 4 different modes of transportation! Tq Suichi!

    Roziana2019-11-16T00:00:00Z
  • Shuichi’s guest house was lovely it was sparkling clean and modern. Shuichi was very friendly and so helpful, he picked us up from the train station, dropped us off at the snow monkey park and helped us to know which buses and trains to get to our next location. We would really recommend staying.

    Nakano-shi, Nagano Prefecture, Japan

    Just a house as homestay, not a hostel or B&B. 2 beds room keeps cozy, w/ shared facilities and a fully equipped kitchen to have rest and relax during your trip. A few mins walk to Snow Monkey bus stop where has direct express bus from Nagano station. 30mins to Monkey Park, 10 mins to great hot springs by walk.
    Shared facilities(shower, laundry, bike, all kitchen stuffs and wifi). The room are fully made-up with linen and blanket provided.
    Honestly the town itself seems old-fashioned and dark, but surrounded by great untouched nature and farms. Experience Shiga Kogen where is biggest ski resort in Japan. Best puffing snow blankets I've ever been in the worlds skiing area . Chill out in rural small town.
  • Really lovely homestay with a wonderful host. Suzie and Toru made us very welcome and were super helpful with information about the local area, tips and transport stuff. Breakfast was great and the beds were so comfy and warm! Would recommend a stay to anyone.

    Samson2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Friendly and comfortable space, both Suzie and Toru speak English very well and have great tips for whatever you want to see and do in their area. Walking distance to a great restaurant, the Farmhouse, and onsen, Waku Waku, and of course, the snow monkeys. As close as you can get to all of these and the popular ski hills; you will have to drive about 45 mins to the ski hills (snow tires or chains needed as you climb the hill, we did ok in a kei car with snow tires, but saw many vehicles stuck on the way up) or take a bus that runs pretty regularly and picks up right by their place. We stayed in a Japanese style room which was elegantly simple, wide and cozy. Kitchen was well stocked with cooking supplies, tea and coffee. Would recommend bringing food if you wanted to make meals, but they had some staples available and some extra items for sale like chips, pasta and beans if you needed on the fly for a few yen.

    Louise2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • We had such a great stay here! Suzie and Toru are great hosts: fun to chat to, and very helpful with providing local tips and helping you get around. The house is comfortable and in a perfect location for Shiga Kogen. We will definitely be back one day :)

    Zoe2020-02-21T00:00:00Z

    Colleen And Alex2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • SUZIE AND TORU ARE AMAZING! Everyone looking for an incredible Shiga-Kogen experience - look no further! Suzie and Toru were so helpful, kind, gave us some great local tips and were amazing to chat about all things travel! As soon as we walked into their place, it felt like home. A nice 10 minute walk to restaurants and the Shiga Kogen brewery and 40 minutes to the Snow Monkeys! The view from our bedroom was EPIC! Free parking, free coffee, free apples and great company! I wish I could give you 10 stars! We will be back! Love from Australia!

    Isi2020-01-23T00:00:00Z
  • Very clean, very photogenic and a wonderful location. I would definitely return.

    Adam2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • If you are visiting this area of Japan to enjoy the amazing snow conditions, this is your place! The location to access Shiga Kogen is just perfect. You have a bus 3 minutes walking from home towards to the different ski resorts. Really convenient. The Snow Monkey Park is also very close as you can walk from home. The house is very welcoming, the services in general are great, specially breakfast which was a nice surprise for us. The only point is that, due to the great location, the room may be a little noisy as the road is just in front. We heard the snow machines since early morning (which was a great signal by the way ☺️). We would recommend this place for sure and we would stay again if we have the chance to visit Japan in the future. Thank you Suzie and Toru!

  • You can experience staying in a good old house in the mountains of Nagano. Although it is a house where you can feel the history, each facility such as amenities was properly arranged, making it a space that everyone can enjoy! I think that not only Japanese people but also foreign customers can enjoy it!

    2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • The rooms are very fashionable and those who like renovation will love it. When it became warm, I thought it would be very fun if I did BBQ on the porch! I would like to use it again. If it was fine, I could see many stars.

  • The renovated space of an old private house was a relaxing space that I could not imagine for the first time. Tableware and cooking utensils were prepared, so it was easy to cook and eat indoors, so I was saved. Anyway, it was nice to be able to refresh because I was able to spend relaxing time in a large, quiet and cozy space. In addition, we use when we come to Nagano.

  • Loved staying here! We booked this stay in order to go skiing at Shiga Kogen (an hour by bus, and the staff can help you plan getting there) and were pleasantly surprised with the entire experience. The fact that the town has community onsens that we were able to access was enough of a surprise, but the free shuttle to the snow monkey park, the comfortable yukatas, the getas, and the great restaurant were cherries on top!

    Rhiley2020-01-27T00:00:00Z

  • Daisuke’s stay has the charm of a small traditional hotel. The dedication of their staff went above our expectations, they surprised us by sending their private shuttle and a taxi to pick us up at the train station at midnight. Location was great and a beautiful walk to the Snow Monkey Park - approximately 20 min walk. Thank you so much for our stay, Daisuke.

    One minute walk to the Zenkoji temple where is one of the oldest temple in Japan. So many nice shops like cafe, seven eleven, japanese restaurant,
  • It was a two night stay, good athmosphere in the hostel :)

    Max2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • Cute decor, artworks and notes around the place. It feels cosy and friendly, both the hostel itself and the staff. It's not large, but it doesn't need to be, it's enough as it is. Bigger might mean more people and then it might feel less like a home. I'd stay there again and recommend to friends.

    Sam2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • Good hostel just close to the temple.

    Antonio2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • It is a small traditional house converted into a hostel, with its limitations. The spaces are small and there is only one bathroom and one shower for the entire hostel. Dream to hear the noises of the other rooms. We stayed in this room for two people and although we knew it was small, we managed and were comfortable in general. The staff was very friendly at all times and resolved all doubts in perfect English. In addition the location is unbeatable.

    Roberto2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • This place was really cozy and the architecture is beautiful, old, and very traditional. Because it’s a bit old, it’s easy to hear a group staying next to you so be sure to bring ear plugs :). The location is really great, the place is clean, and check in was fast and friendly with a little map that shows you some things you can do in the area. It’s nice to be able to leave your bags even after you have checked out.

  • The hostel is in a nice area of Nagano. The Zenkoji Temple is right next door and there is a train from the station, otherwise it is only a 20 minute walk. The house is traditional Japanese and we really liked it. The bathroom and kitchen were very clean despite some of them (the cleanest I've ever seen in the hostel). The old construction can make it louder, but that didn't bother us. The staff were friendly and helped well, so that we could store our luggage before we checked in. The room is more than adequate and the bed was comfortable. All in all we can recommend Nao's accommodation to everyone and would come back anytime.

    Zixin2019-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • My brother and I were on a motorcycle tour and just need a space to crash for the night. This fit the bill perfectly. The rooms are basic ryokan style with tatami and futons. The highlight was the lounge overlooking the pond in the courtyard. We ordered dinner from the cafe and ate in the lounge while watching Fast & Furious: Tokyo Drift on Netflix. Midway through the movie monkeys came in to the courtyard and were swinging through the tree, climbing the statue and diving and swimming in the pond. Very entertaining. We woke early in the morning, hopped on the bikes, and had a great ride on the 292 through Shirunekogen and down the Manza Tollway. The hotel is just at the end of the 292 so we didn't have to ride the motorcycles through the city, and there are two large gas stations on the highway coming in to town. This was a great rest stop for our trip.

    ホストが古代染織と墨彩画家とシンガーソングライターの妻ですので、作品を展示してあります。 ご希望が有れば数千年前からの古代技で茜色を染める体験と、ミニコンサートを出来ます。 また冬は近くにスキー場が有り、ホストが全日本マスターズスキー大会などの出場経験者ですので、初心者直にスキーの指導も出来ます。
    海抜1600メーターの山の中腹ですので回りは自然がいっぱいです。 また回りは一面桃や林檎、葡萄などの果物畑ですので、その果物の花の季節は空気までピンク色のようになります。 果物が熟すころには友人の果物畑で林檎や葡萄狩りが出来ます。 道路を挟んで上に開山500年の寺があり、桜の時期には一目千本と言われている桜の名所で、桜が終わると紫陽花寺になります。 また宿泊いただく施設の上の道路は180度のパノラマの夕陽の名所です。 ホストの私達が長年自然の中で遊んで来ていますので、近くの山で山菜採りや散策のご案内も出来ます。 専門的なものですので、基本として言葉が通じるゲストの方に限り、実費で古代染色体験が出来ます。 Nature is full around the mountain because it is a mountain middle of 1,600 meters above sea level. As the surroundings are fruit fields such as peaches, apples and grapes, the season of the flowers of the fruits will look like pink to the air. When fruits are ripe, you can do apples and grape hunts in friends' fruit fields. There is a 500-year-old temple on the top of the road with a 500-year hill and in the period of cherry blossoms is a cherry-blossom landmark that is said to be one thousand pieces. When the cherry blossoms are over, it becomes a hydrangea temple. The road above the facilities to stay is a sunset of 180 degrees panorama setting sun. Since we have been playing in the nature for a long time at the host, we can also guide you about walking and walking in the nearby mountains.
  • We were able to stay with peace of mind with friendly and helpful support. It's a recommended place to get to Nagano and major ski resorts in less than an hour! Thank you very much!

  • I used it for snowboarding trips with four men in their late 20s. Conclusion, everyone is very satisfied! A gentle couple in their 5s and 60s was running! Here are some good points because they are going to be long. ・ The contact before the reservation was quick, the response was polite and the reservation was smooth. ・ The check-in time could be changed on a case-by-case basis.・ Kitchen supplies are basically large pots, medium pots, frying pans, various dishes, chopsticks, cups etc. ・ If you have something else you want, you can lend it (if you live) ・ Seasoning was also available (check what you have before arrival) ・ The kitchen is relatively large (about 4 adults can taste and enjoy) ・ Is the table for four? There are two (large) types that can be used for various purposes.-The futon is soft and fluffy. It is very simple and gentle.-There is nothing around and it is okay to make sound at a reasonable volume? ・ The stars are beautiful (because there is no light around, you can see them very much) ・ Nagamine Onsen, which is about 10 minutes by car nearby, is old-fashioned and the best (but the shower hot water is almost water) ・ It's wide enough to run a shuttle if you don't have everything on it (I didn't do it) ・ Depends on the negotiations depending on how the sound is used. ・ It is spacious but warms up quickly if you use the stove. There is not much, but there are some troubles! ・ Is the cutting board a little small? ・ One kitchen knife ・ Isn't there a speaker that can be heard with Bluetooth etc.? I'm really thankful to you!

The host and hostess are so nice that offered us very nice and warm support. There is also a very kawaii grandpa who enjoy bowsing Instagram. During the stay, we are also offered delicious local food, homemade cheese and hostess’s original classical music CD! Generally, a very nice stay here, and will definitely come back if I come to Nagano again.

    Nozomi2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Although it was delayed from the check-in time that was initially reported due to traffic congestion, and other inconveniences, it was very kind. The place is a bit difficult to understand, but it was okay because it was not so far from the hot springs and it gave me directions carefully. Thank you for all the help you have given me.

    夏帆2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • The location was close to Kusatsu Onsen and the surroundings of the building were quiet and relaxing. It was a winter stay, but it was comfortable without any inconvenience due to the well-equipped facilities. The host was very kind and was very helpful to share detailed information about the surrounding facilities and area. It is a wonderful trip and I am very satisfied.

    拓磨2020-03-07T00:00:00Z

  • A very good uncle! There is an electric futon and a kerosene stove so you can get warm in the room. It takes about 15 minutes by car from the center of Kusatsu Onsen. Since the inn is a villa area, there is nothing around it, but since I went by car, I do not feel inconvenience or much, I think that it is good overall.

  • Tomoyo-san was very friendly and accommodating. Her house is in a great location, and the futon were very comfortable and warm. We really enjoyed our short time in Kusatsu!

    Rachel2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Good location, clean, and adequate heating facilities. I also experienced kotatsu.

  • Tomo-san and her husband are gentle people. They prepared breakfast and sent me back to the station by car. The hot spring bath was comfortable.

    ペニー2019-12-24T00:00:00Z
  • Tomoyo's house is the best address you can find in Kusatsu Onsen! It is very well located, of course, but what makes the difference is Tomoyo and his family, kind and generous, who take great care of their guests! You can for example enjoy a breakfast each morning in your spacious and traditional room ... and you can count on your hosts to provide you with the best local addresses! Thanks again for everything Tomoyo!

    Jérémy2019-12-14T00:00:00Z
  • The location was good and it was easy to go to the outside bath, but the private bath of the inn was also comfortable in the hot spring. The kotatsu in the room was also the best. Breakfast and coffee were prepared and it was very helpful. The feeling of distance that did not interfere so much was just right. I want to use it again when visiting Kusatsu.

    Sumire2019-12-09T00:00:00Z
  • Check in this listing for the second time, and I will probably go there again in the future. The location is very good, a five minute walk from Kusatsu Yuda, which is much cheaper than other hot spring hotels. Kusatsu Nikkei Onsen can be enjoyed, which is great. There is also Baigen Shrine next to it. The listing itself is the side building of Rikang Temple. The male lead is a mage and the house is legendary. The facilities are also good. Kusatsu's acid hot springs are directly entered into the home, but it is estimated that this resource will not be very useful if you go to Yutian. Remember to take a bottle before taking it. There is free parking, the breakfast is a little humble and there are some small breads. Kusatsu Japan's No.1 Hot Spring, Ri Akoji Temple is very cost-effective /

  • A total of seven friends and family members used the ski trip. The location and facilities of the cottage are almost as described in the listing. Almost everything we needed was clean and the heating was warm without any problems (we bring bath towels, paper towels and tissue). The fact that the entrance and clog box space is large, and that we could store the skis and snow boots for the number of people with plenty of space was saved. We had you explain very carefully at the time of check-in and were saved. It looks good in summer, so I would like to use it again with my family.

  • Ichiro’s place was excellent. The location is very close to the snow monkeys. Only a 10 min drive which they provide. They also offer breakfast. The western breakfast was great, one of the best I had during my 2 week travels in Japan. The room was spacious and clean. The hosts are amazing. Very friendly people who truly love what they do. If ever back in the area I would book again!!

    Annette2019-11-28T00:00:00Z
  • Ichiro and Daisuke were absolutely warm, welcoming, and cared about us having the best experience possible! The rooms are spacious and the bedding is warm and comfortable. The building itself is a bit dated but very clean and is a very charming place to stay. We basically had the entire place to ourselves, and it felt like we were in some movie! The onsen areas are a very nice addition to have as well. Would definitely stay again!

  • Ichiro and his wife are wonderful hosts. They have a beautiful ryokan with their own private onsen. Ichiro can give you the best tips if it comes to sight seeing, restaurants and other things to do. We didn't go to the snow monkey park but instead a monkey came to us early in the morning, in our room. We were a bit scared but Ichiro came with his catapult and chased the monkey away. The revenge of the snow monkeys. Lesson 1: visit always the snow monkey park. The room was very clean, the futon beds a bid hard but they try to soften the beds a little bid. A great place to stay. Thank you.

    Mario2019-05-21T00:00:00Z
  • We had an amazing stay here! We were able to get picked up from the train station, driven to the monkeys, and dropped back off at the station on departure. Possibly the most hopeful host I’ve ever had, and some of the nicest people ever! Highly recommend. Loved having an on-site onsen as well to relax at after a long day of traveling! Thanks for everything.

    Rebecca2020-01-29T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful stay. The accommodation is a stylish ryokan, although the room we booked is in a building opposite. It has an internal onsen that can be booked privately for free and they also take you to the entrance of the Snow Monkey Park (from there they are 1.8km walking). The attention was unbeatable!

Tqvm for being such a wonderful host. Regret unable to experience the onsen which is so accessible but time did not permit us. Again Tqvm Shino san.

  • Shino and Daisuke provided a lovely little ryokan stay in Yamanouche. It was easy to locate the space (heads up the walk has a reasonably significant hill on it for those who have trouble walking hills). My stay was quiet and easy. The hosts were warm, welcoming, and provided tips for things to do. The private onsen was also a plus! Thanks!

  • I believe we met with Shinzo upon arrival and she was greeted us with a warm welcome! It appears that they may run both buildings as we were upgraded to the place that had the onsen due to the snow. We were very thankful that we didn’t have to walk across the snowy/icy road to use the amenities. We wanted to relax and we did just that! Shinzo explained the entire process and spoke in English which was very helpful. Our room was spacious and very clean. It’s about a 10 minute walk from the Yudanaka station. We loved Nagano and would come back again!

  • On top of being great all around, they really saved our butts by giving us tips on the best times to do things to avoid crowds, and reminded us of train schedules as well. Highly recommended.

    Gabriel2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • I highly recommend staying at Aibiya! It was a wonderful place to stay in Yamanouchi and the hosts Seongmi and Yoshi are wonderful hosts who really care about their customers. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and certainly hope to return one day!

    Georgia2019-12-07T00:00:00Z
  • Everything about our stay was great. The hosts are so welcoming and helpful- and speak perfect English which is great when you don’t speak any Japanese! The house is only 5 minutes walk from the station. It is a traditional Japanese style inside with super-clean and comfortable bedrooms and great washing facilities. There is a huge fully fitted kitchen for preparing your own meals but there are so many good restaurants around that we didn’t bother but followed some of our hosts’ recommendations - which were excellent. The hosts provide a lovely continental breakfast ( included in the cost) which was a nice surprise. I would heartily recommend Aibiya to anyone coming to this part of Japan to ski or to see the snow monkeys.

    Elizabeth2019-11-14T00:00:00Z
  • Aibiya is a wonderful place to stay if you are looking to spend time in one of Japan’s beautiful onsen towns. Yudanaka Onsen has good food, nice baths, and easy access (by bus) to hiking trails, and Seongmi and Yoshiki are extremely welcoming and cordial hosts who serve a delicious breakfast.

    Leah2019-11-04T00:00:00Z
  • When we arrived in Aibiyia, the same idea clicked in our head with my friend : we have to stay one day more. This guest house is ideal, you’ll never want to leave. It’s peaceful and cozy, well located in the beautiful mountains of Yundanaka, surrounded by good restaurants, relaxing onzens, harmonious forrest without forgetting the cute monkeys ! The two host are so very attentive and helpful, they will do anything to make you stay the best. Don’t be a fool and don’t hesitate a second to stay in Aibiyia ! You’re trip will just take another dimension...

    Joy2019-10-08T00:00:00Z
  • Clean rooms and nice hosts welcomed us. I bought a voucher for a nearby hot spring and enjoyed it at night and morning. In addition to bread and cereal, you can also enjoy local vegetables and fruits. A slightly unusual peach? It was delicious with a unique texture. It became one of the wonderful memories of Yudanaka Onsen.

    Tetsuro2019-08-11T00:00:00Z
  • Had a really great experience staying at Abiya. Yoshi was very accommodating - from giving us directions to suggesting local restaurants, ryokans, & businesses in the area to go to. The entire space was clean, well organized, and a very comfortable environment. I will definitely be staying here if I decide to go see snow monkeys again :)

  • Access is good. Close to the interchange. If you run a little, there are supermarkets, home improvement stores, family restaurants and convenience stores. The children were very happy. Since it was a season with little snow, I went to Nozawa Onsen. I will arrive in about 20 minutes. Ideal for winter sports.

    ヤスユキ2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Quite place in central location to several ski resorts. Host made us feel right at home -remember to take shoes off before you enter the house though

    Marc2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • Great access from many nearby ski slopes. Cospa was good, too and was able to spend comfortably.

    Hakjoon2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • Hidetaka is an excellent host that makes sure the house is ready before you arrive. He will turn on the heater for you before you arrive and also shovel the snow off the doorstep. The place is as seen in the photos and is indeed magical when it snows.

    Medwin2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • I would suggest hiring a car as there is a bit of a hike to shops and laundro mat as there are no facilities close by. The scenery is amazing and the cabin is in a good location to visit other areas with ease if you wanted too

    Paige2020-01-17T00:00:00Z
  • The buffet dinner and breakfast for six or more people accompanied by Japanese friends will be very good and you can feel the local atmosphere.

    I would recommend you stay minimum 2 nights(discounted price) for Shiga Kogen & Monkey park. Here is just a house, not a hotel or B&B. The room keeps cozy, w/ shared facilities and a fully equipped kitchen to have rest and relax during your trip.
    Shared facilities(shower, laundry, bike, all kitchen stuffs and wifi). Smoking space outside. The room is fully made-up with linen and good blanket provided.
    Honestly... the town itself seems "ghost town", where is surrounded by untouched nature and farms. Experience Shiga Kogen where is biggest ski resort in Japan.
  • Absolutely amazing home and hosts, lovely to talk to and made our stay very homely.

    Harvey2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • This place is in a perfect location and the hosts are outstanding! They were so helpful and friendly, just the perfect hosts

    Ese2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • Suzie and her friend are very friendly and helpful. They take us from bus stop and take us to super market.Give me more advice of snowboarding in Shigakogen. The room has a heater is very warm and clean If you wanna go to snow monkey park or hot spring you can walking to there Bus stop to Shigakogen is very close only 3 mins of walk

    Guo2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed at Suzie and Toru’s place for two nights. Our main goal was to see the Snow Monkeys and this was the perfect place for that! We got up early and were one of the first people in because the walk was about 40 minutes from Suzie’s place. This would be an ideal place to check out Shiga-Kogen as well - I wish we’d had time to do that too!

    Riley2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • The stay was wonderful. We got good recommendations around the area and enjoyed our time. Our room was spacious and the bed comfy. See you next time!

    Liang2020-01-25T00:00:00Z
  • Really enjoyed staying in this cozy and pretty house. Loved the authentic experience of a Japanese home with nice bohemian touches that made the place felt very homely. The rooms and toilet are really clean and I enjoyed taking warm showers especially after a long day of touring. The convenience of the place is a plus too, with it stationed next to the bus station that has buses going to Nagano station and Shiga Kogen ski resorts. The home is also walkable from Shibu Onsen and the Snow Monkey park.

    Francoise2020-01-22T00:00:00Z
  • Had a fantastic stay at Suzie's place. They were both so kind and welcoming. Very close to the snow monkey park and some restaurants.

    Prue2020-01-17T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect spot between mountains. Whether you love snowboarding or onsen or monkey that is a really good place to stay. Walking distance from snow monkey park, onsen, and Shibu onsen, the Place is sorrounded by nice places for food and beer. The room is clean and cozy and Suzie and Toru are kind and attendance hosts. Highly recommended.

  • The highlight of Nagano is the stay in this traditional Japanese home, which are inspired by tee we make culture: tatami mats, a seasonal scroll alcove, a meditative garden, wood burning hearth, and so many details too numerous to mention. The owner, Kei, is knowledgeable of western culture, and his hospitality is immeasurable: he will pick you up and deliver you at no extra charge, and provide detailed instructions for living in a traditional home. Everything is AUTHENTIC about the experience here and worth every penny! It complements the visit to Zenkoji Temple and slow down your thoughts for a nature based relaxation.

    Elene2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • This was an extraordinary place to stay, and I would say that you would be hard pressed to find better accommodation in Nagano. The hut is so beautiful, mixing traditional Japanese style with a modern twist. All the amenities were there and the place was spotless. Kei is the best host anyone could ask for, he was so accommodating and selfless, giving us a small personal tour of Nagano and driving us everywhere we needed to go (even the monkey park!!!). Kei truly went above and beyond to make to make sure we comfortable and that we enjoyed out stay. We are extremely saddened that we didn’t stay longer, as this was an experience not to be forgotten.

    Daniel2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Stayed for 4 people. It is expected that the owner will be cheerful, friendly and friendly, and will probably be willing to respond to all questions and concerns in good faith. The splendor of a renovated space that has been carefully renovated while retaining the beauty and taste of a good old Japanese house. The access is good, just a 5-minute walk from Kirihara Station, and the surrounding environment is very quiet. Is there a better place to stay for those who like cooking, such as a wood stove (luxury!), An easy-to-use kitchen, and a large selection of cooking utensils that can taste the nature of Nagano? I thought both. It was fun to buy local vegetables and bread at direct sales outlets, cook and eat while having a conversation. Glasses that shake under the soft and soft indirect lighting at night, drip coffee in a room heated little by little by the stove in the crisp air of the morning, every moment is “delicious” and “fun” It was amazing in a row. In addition, there are a wide variety of organic tea leaves (dokudami, mulberry leaves, mugwort and wheat, etc.) and coffee equipment prepared by the owners, and the attitude to respect the tastes of the residents was seen. Fluffy futons with the scent of the sun, well-maintained furnishings, and attentive attention everywhere. An uncompromising space in pursuit of "like" has become one of the best places to stay. I will come back next year. *** I could see that the traditional-style house is renovate with the owners' heartwarming hospitality.I highly recommend this stunning place with big confidence. *** Esta casa tiene la historia más de 6-70 años: el estilo japonés tradicional es muy mola. Dueño: Kei es la persona magnifica, hable Inglés, Italiano y Frances. Especialmente una cosa q me encantó es sobre la cocina es limpia y hay muchos tipos de los utensilios de cocina. Os recomiendo este hostel desde corazón.

    Price incl Room n 2meals - delicious dinner n breakfast. We serve trad Japanese n Italian cuisine. 4 Western n 1 Tatami room(5rms) w/ private toilet. We have 3 listings pls check if this has no rooms. The house is located in the countryside n surrounded by a forest. 2hours fm Tokyo. 4hours fm Kyoto. This place is a non-touristy part. 15min by car fm JR Iiyama Shinkansen station(pickup available). In winter you can ski closeby. Many Onsen are located nearby. We can arrange transportation.
    Basically one room is prepared for one or two guests. Each room has a washbasin and a private toilet w/ a washlet. The rooms are without a private bathroom but have a toilet. Bathroom and shower room are shared with guests of other rooms. We are a private BnB in the middle of mountain and not a 5 star Hotel in the big city, the house is always completely tidy and cleaned but it's a small house we live in, sometimes we have little things to fix as for example you may see little bugs, you may feel the smell of the oil heater is strong. We will pick you up at Iiyama station around or after 3pm. Check in time is 3pm.
    Japan in general is an easy place to travel around. Getting to Kijimadaira is easy with Shinkansen. You can buy JR pass in your country. It is less than 2 hours from Tokyo to Iiyama. Just 4 hours from Kyoto. It is less than 80min. from Kanazawa. Just 15min. drive from Iiyama station to my house.

Surrounded by forests and very quiet and peaceful. Nozawa onsen and the Snow monkey park are crowded with many tourists like Tokyo, but the surroundings of my house is peaceful. There are no shops and restaurants around my house, there are only forests and fields. There may be opportunities to meet foxes and raccoons. If necessary, we will take you to a supermarket or convenience store.

  • My family really enjoyed our stay here. We live in Japan and so didn't expect to be wowed by the food, but the food truly is exceptional. We have dietary restrictions and are very grateful that the hosts accommodated us. Having meals prepared for us made for a really relaxing trip. We usually go to Nagano by car. Because the hosts pick us up and drop us off we were grateful to be able to visit this area without having to drive. We also enjoyed meeting other guests in the dining area. The area is great for visiting Nozawa Onsen, skiing and the snow monkeys. My kids are already asking to go back. We hope to visit again for beetle hunting in the summer.

    Letitia2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • My stay and trip with Yoshi-San was exceptionally better than I would have ever imagined. He is not your typical Air b&b host where you rarely see your host. Yoshi-San will pick you up, make you breakfast and dinner, and double checks your schedule for the rest of your stay— that way he can schedule out a timeline of when to take you to the station and when/where to pick you up. You can tell that Yoshi-San has done this professionally for quite some time. It’s not only him of course, his wife will pop up here and there and help make the breakfast and dinner for us. Their food is definitely 5 star restaurant quality. Yoshi-san is very humble and I thought his English was good enough for me to have a fun conversation with him. I had no problem communicating with him and we understood each other quite well. As for lodging, I couldn’t complain at all. We had a beautiful, snow filled view of the mountains and trees. We had 2 beds for 2 people. A private toilet and electric heater for the room. We are from Okinawa and it wasn’t as cold as I thought it would be in the rooms/house. You will not regret booking a stay at Yoshi-Sans home. I highly recommend his place!

    Carrie2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Mr Yoshihiro and his family are kind and helpful. He is one of the best host in airbnb. We enjoy our time in his house. Mr Yoshihiro picked up us in JR station and take us to go Ski center and Onsen. It’s wonderful time to live in. Mr Yoshihiro is a great chef and prepare breakfast and dinner are amazing and full of memories. Sean Chan Hong Kong

  • Look no further and book now!!! Yoshihiro's place exceeded all of my expectations and staying with him and his family was one of the highlights of my trip! I was visiting to snowboard at Nozawaonsen and Yoshihiro helped me to get on the shuttle daily and gave me a ride to a local onsen at night. His recommendations were spot on and provided me with a unique experience. Also, his cooking was exceptional!!! A restaurant quality experience at home! His communication, service, cooking and knowledge of the local area were top notch. I would absolutely stay with his family again and give him my highest recommendation!

    Pat2020-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing value for money, Yoshihiro and his wife made our stay in Iiyama seamless and unforgetable. Both the breakfast and dinner services were spectacular, every meal was made up of a minimum of 4 delicious hand made dishes prepared with care and experience . His house was cosy and warm, beds were comfotable and the local knowledge he shared was vital for getting the most out of Iiyama. Even if you aren't in the area, I highly recommend going out of your way to stay a few nights with Yoshihiro, it will be worth it.

    Tim2020-01-29T00:00:00Z
  • Yoshihiro san and Rieko san went above and beyond for us. We were welcomed so warmly into their lovely home and served dinner on entry after a long train ride which was just what we felt like! Yoshihiro san helped us organise how to get to Nozawa Onsen for snowboarding and gave us rides to and from the bus stop and the local outdoor onsen. We feel very fortunate to have met Yoshihiro san and Rieko san and we will definitely be back for a longer stay! This bnb was the highlight of Japan - book your stay here and enjoy the quieter side of Japan. Thank you Yoshihiro san and Rieko san, if you visit New Zealand you have a home here!

  • The host is very kind and offers to drive you/pick you up up to three different times a day. Breakfast was not available to us (unfortunately) but I think that was because the markets were closed for New Years. The place is very cozy and the rooms are large. Just be prepared to sleep on the floor! The mat was surprisingly comfortable and he provides many blankets. It was a great experience and we recommend it to everyone!

  • Excellent location and quiet! This was a great space to base out of for the Snow Monkeys and the mountains! Wish we could've stayed longer!

  • Yoshirou-san is the embodiment of true Japanese hospitality! He loves to make sure you're taken care of and will treat you like family. I slept on a Japanese futon on tatami flooring in a traditional Japanese-style room. And I've got to say it felt like I was sleeping on a cloud. A very effective space heater is provided to quickly heat up the room when in use. The toilet room is located out in the lobby area and is clean and has bidet functions as well. He has a shower room somewhere else on-site (which I never personally asked to use since you absolutely must take advantage of the hot spring baths in town!) The lobby is spacious and comfortable and a great place to hang out. One thing to take advantage of is Yoshirou-san's gourmet breakfasts which are totally worth the completely reasonable extra cost. His meals are nutritionally balanced, large in portion size, and mouthwateringly delicious. You will not (and I mean this) find a better breakfast anywhere in Japan! You must taste his cooking! Because the guesthouse is located a bit of a walk from the town center, Yoshirou-san offers pick-up and drop-off service for a limited number of times per day which will give you more time to explore. Also note that there is a notable language barrier since English isn't Yoshirou-san's forte, but bring along Google Translate and you'll make it just fine. All in all, I definitely will be back to live with Yoshirou-san in the future if I'm ever in the area. Cheers! (Pro tip: If you are going to be in Yudanaka for a couple of days, consider asking the information center at the train center about an onsen deal that allows you three baths at any of the three Yukadana onsens.)

  • Yoshirou is a great host with lot of experience and great hospitality. He will give you local tips to make the most of your time in Yudanaka. The house is located around 4 minutes by car away from the station and he offers to take you there or pick you up, though I recommend walking since the town is beautiful. The room is really cozy, and even though it can get pretty cold in winter, there's a heather in the room that will warm it up in just a few minutes, in the meantime, you can wait at the extremely comfortable common place. The bathrooms are squeaky clean and there is also a shower you can ask Yoshirou to use if you don't feel like relaxing at the local public bath. I highly recommend this place if you are traveling solo.

  • This place was absolutely stunning, the rooms and common area were beautiful and the place is perfectly located close to the local town, train station and monkey park. Yoshirou was the perfect host, nothing was too much trouble he picked us up from the train station, drove us to the local onsen and monkey park. The breakfast he made us in the morning was incredible and this place made our stay in Yamanochi really special! even the little touch of warming hot water bottles to keep our beds warm, Yoshirou thought of everything!

    Kate2019-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • This is a very good house, the best house I have ever stayed in. Mr. Fang Lang is also very good, and the reception is very warm! The house is very nice and tidy, and the view from the window is very beautiful! really thankful! If I can, I will definitely go again!

    雅迪2019-01-18T00:00:00Z
  • After spending 5 busy days in Tokyo this was a perfect get away from the city. Yoshirou’s guest house was excellent and so was he! The nicest guy you will ever meet! He picked us up from the station and drove us to his house. He drove us up to the snow monkeys (which were incredible) and picked us up again. Back at his place we chilled out in front of the fire playing cards looking out at the snowy mountains. You absolutely have to have the breakfast yoshirou offers, he is an amazing chef and the breakfast feast he cooks you is some of the best food we have had in Japan! A perfect trio and would recommend 100%.

  • The hosts are incredible. They were very accommodating and very quick to respond with any questions. They were also extremely helpful and attended to my needs. The place was very clean and had all of the necessities for a few night stay.

    湯田中温泉, Japan

    Price incl Room n 2meals - delicious dinner n breakfast. We serve trad Japanese n Italian cuisine. 4 Western n 1 Tatami room(5rms) w/ private toilet. We have 3 listings pls check if this has no rooms. The house is located in the countryside n surrounded by a forest. 2hours fm Tokyo. 4hours fm Kyoto. This place is a non-touristy part. 15min by car fm JR Iiyama Shinkansen station(pickup available). In winter you can ski closeby. Many Onsen are located nearby. We can arrange transportation.
    Basically one room is prepared for one or two guests. Each room has a washbasin and a private toilet w/ a washlet without a private bathroom. Bathroom and shower room are shared with guests of other rooms. We are a private BnB in the middle of mountain and not a 5 star Hotel, the house is always completely tidy and cleaned but it's a small house we live in, sometimes we have little things to fix as for example you may feel the smell of the oil heater is strong. Just little bugs may come in your room. Nothing that caused problems. We will pick you up at Iiyama station around or after 3pm. Check in time is 3pm.
    Japan in general is an easy place to travel around. Getting to Kijimadaira is easy with Shinkansen. You can buy JR pass in your country. It is less than 2 hours from Tokyo to Iiyama. Just 4 hours from Kyoto. It is less than 80min. from Kanazawa. Just 15min. drive from Iiyama station to my house. You can come right now. 30 minutes by bus from Iiyama station to the Snow Monkey Park. Only 11minutes from Nagano station with Zenkoji to Iiyama station. Kijimadaira is a small village located between Nozawa onsen and Snow monkey park in the north of Nagano pref. My house is up on a hill with city views. Surrounded by forests and very quiet and peaceful. Nozawa onsen and the Snow monkey park are crowded with many tourists like Tokyo, but the surroundings of my house is peaceful. There are no shops and restaurants around my house, there are only forests and fields. There may be opportunities to meet foxes and raccoons. If necessary, we will take you to a supermarket or convenience store.
  • A home away from home! A perfect place to experience staying with a local family and having delicious meals on a daily basis. My children said staying at Chica-San place was the highlight of our trip (it wasnt Disneyland!). Chica San and Deiko San were great hosts and made us feel comfortable from the day we arrived until the day we left. The meals prepared by Chica San was amazing, we just could not wait for meal time. Rooms were comfortable and we had good sleep every night. There is a an area outside the house for the children to play sledges and snow. Highly recommende for families!

  • Yoshihiro-san is a great host. The rooms are simple but very clean and there is everything you need. The house is very cozy. In the dining room there is also a play area with blue blocks and a small table football for the children. With the super delicious breakfast and dinner there are also good excursion tips for the area. Yoshihiro-san's accommodation is definitely worth a stay. When we get back to the area, we will definitely stay with Yoshihiro-san.

    Florian2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • The info on Airbnb is accurate so you know what to expect. The house is clean, food is good and plentiful and the hosts are very accommodating. I really enjoyed my stay with Yoshihiro san and his lovely wife and thoroughly recommend staying here if you find yourself in the Iiyama area. The best thing I can say is that I felt like I was visiting a friends house rather than staying at an Airbnb. The hosts are friendly and always trying to give you more to eat or drink, will plan mealtimes around your schedule and provide assistance/info for the places you want to go.

    Frank2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Comfortable and cozy accommodation with amazing food! We had everything we needed with yoshihiro being the kindest host ever!

    Timothy2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • This place is wonderful. We enjoy our days there . We want to ski and landlord help us book it.They also carry us there.The food here is brilliant. We enjoy a lot. The landlord can be a chief.He can speak English.And he can send us to many places .You can have your own room with a hot air conditioner.The landlord is also funny . He make as laugh the whole afternoon because of his funny jokes.

    2020-02-05T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic hosts! And delicious meals with Yoshihiro. He was incredibly responsive, and took great pains to get us to where we needed to be. Very comfortable sleep.

    Melissa2020-01-22T00:00:00Z
  • Yoshihiro san and Rieko san were exceptional hosts. Nothing was too much trouble. The quality and variation of the meals were beyond expectations even though previous guests had raved about it. Yoshihiro ensured that we were fed and delivered to the local bus each morning to travel to Nozawa for skiing and on our return from the slopes he always promptly collected us from the bus to transport us to his welcoming home of warmth, delicious meals, and hot shower/bath. It was never too much inconvenience for him to take us to the outside onsen near his home or to the grocery store for supplies. We would not hesitate to stay with Yoshihiro san and Rieko san again in the future and can only highly recommend their place to people who appreciate Japanese hospitality at its best.

    Lisa2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • I believe like 99% of the guests who leave positive reviews for Yoshihiro-san, the majority agrees that the homemade meal he prepared for us are really restaurant standard and it’s makes us looking forward for meal times when we come back from our activities. He tries to arrange for pick up and drop offs which can accommodate the staying guests and everyone is more than willing to adjust their timing accordingly. It’s my first trip to Japan and Yoshihiro-san set the bar really high. Iiyama is a good place to go to and fro from Nagano/Nozawa Onsen etc. Would definitely book here again for trips back
