Stayed here mid-December with two girlfriends. We all wanted to experience a traditional ryokan during our time in Japan and Senshinkan Matsuya gave us a delightful memory that has turned into a trip highlight. We came here from Tokyo which was quite a trek. When we finally checked in, we were exhausted because we had hiked to the monkey park...

This was my first time staying in a traditional ryokan and I had a wonderful experience. Keiko was incredibly sweet and helpful. She greeted me with tea when I arrived and helped me arrange a trip to Jigokudani Monkey Park the following day. The hotel offered a complimentary shuttle to the park entrance, which was very convenient. The rooms are...

The family who run this inn are lovely and we enjoyed our stay here. We were picked up from the train station and dropped back, and also given a lift to the monkey park as part of the package. We also enjoyed the onsen around town. For the price paid in the location this was a great hotel. Our only...

Staying at Senshinkan Matsuya was one of the highlights of our trip in Japan. And I mean the Ryokan itself was a highlight- the owners were so kind and generous, the space was beautiful, and dinner was one of the best we had in Japan. And that's really saying something. Plus the hotsprings in the town are wonderful, and the...

My wife and I stayed 4 nights here and LOVED it. The owners Tomomi and Keiko are such nice and friendly people who went above and beyond in their kindness during our stay. The food was delicious and we enjoyed both the nearby Onsen on our street and the onsen within this Ryokan. We enjoyed wearing the beautiful Yukata to...

No regrets choosing this ryokan. It was our first time to stay in one and we thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. Eventhough we had to share a toilet and bathroom, we didn't mind it. Surprisingly we never had to queue. Nice location (middle to the 9 public baths), gracious hosts, great food (we chose the Matsu course), spacious room, very...

Incredible hospitality by amazing warm owners. The rooms were clean and comfortable, the set dinner and breakfasts were delicious and you get a key to access all the hot spring bath houses - great value!. A really fun experience to dress in Japanese robes to enjoy the bath houses and dinner, and the shuttle service to the Monkey Park was...

This family run ryokan is over 100 years old and is run by the owners. They are very nice people who will do whatever it takes to make your stay enjoyable. What it may lack in modern facilities, it more than makes up in charm and personality. I've stayed in brand new corporate run onsens and they do have their...

After looking at the reviews of ryokan in TA, I settled on this place as the food looked really good for the price. My mom and I had a breakfast and dinner meal plan - Matsu course and the service was very homely. It felt I was living in a family home. By the time I returned my rented car...

We stayed in several Ryokans while in Japan and this was by far our favorite. The hosts are very friendly and accommodating, the rooms are exactly what you want in a Ryokan and the breakfast was great. There was also a free shuttle to the snow monkey park every morning.
