Staying at Senshinkan Matsuya was the highlight of our trip to Japan. We new we were booking something totally out of our comfort zone but wanted to experience the culture. I am so glad we booked here as I highly recommend the entire experience. We found the staff to be very welcoming. As we arrived after 2.30pm we were picked up from the station. With the key to the onsens we enjoyed 5 of them, thankfully each time we were alone. My husband would go into the males and my daughter and I would go into the females, each time holding our breath to see if someone was in there. The township is lovely and we enjoyed wondering around. We ate dinner at a local restaurant. We booked the breakfast with our stay and again as a fussy eater I was out of my comfort zone but embraced the food and ate it all. I again highly recommend breakfast, it was traditional and the ambiance was lovely. After breakfast we were dropped to the Snow Monkeys and our luggage was stored at a designated spot arranged by the Ryokan staff near the station. Visiting the snow monkeys early was amazing, like truly amazing. We loved every minute of our stay from the rooms, the key to the onsens, breakfast and the assistance provided. I would highly recommend.

A nice little traditional Ryokan in an amazing location and very close to the Snow Monkeys. The rooms are fine, pretty basic but they do the job. The Onsen in the venue is nice and you are in very close proximity to about 8 other public onsens. We did find that there was not much open in the area but this could have been due to the season. The owner (the husband) provides a shuttle bus to see the monkeys in the morning which is pretty handY, but you'll need to take the bus back plus a 2km walk. Unfortunately though I can't give this accommodation a higher rating because the husband was just generally unpleasant and not very friendly - he also just watched my partner struggle with her suitcase up the stairs rather than offering assistance, which is the minimum you would normally expect from any good accommodation. Also, everything is on a very strict shechdule and quite regimented - in the morning my partner found out her family dog was being put to sleep, so she was quite upset and we were a but slow in getting ready for the 9am bus to see the monkeys, however, at 8:50 the owner was knocking our door and seemed quite angry that we were not already downstairs and he told us people were waiting, even though it wasn't even 9am yet. Unfortunately this attitude didn't make us feel any better that morning but thankfully the Snow Monkeys did! On another note though, the female staff all seemed very pleasant so it's a shame that the husband tainted our experience there.

We are a family of five (three teenage children). We caught the train from Nagano to Yudanaka Station. The owner only picks you up from the train station between certain times. On arrival at this traditional Ryokan, which is centrally located in the town, we were seated at the reception with a welcome tea and exchanged paperwork. The owner explained a few things about the town and the onsens. Once the owner dropped us at our room we did not see him again until the next morning. We asked to have one room accommodating all five of us which he did. This was cosy but we were happy to be able to stay as one group. We were given kimono's and geta's (wooden clogs) and the key to the towns onsens. This was a wonderful experience and all the family loved the whole cultural experience, walking down the cobble stone streets in the snow, even saw snow monkeys in the main street at dusk. The next morning we had a traditional breakfast which was amazing, then the owner dropped us at the snow monkey park entrance. I have to rate the service on picking us up and dropping us off, this was extremely helpful. Overall we really enjoyed our night venturing the town.

This is a really traditional (i.e. old, dated, ...) Ryokan with no lift and ensuite toilet / shower room. It even has an ancient VHS machine in the bedroom. :) Hence, there's a unique charm about this place. Do note that this Ryokan doesn't accept credit card, and you've to pay cash.

I stayed here one night and got the half board option (dinner and breakfast provided). Unfortunately, I had to leave for the train station early and wasn’t able to partake in the breakfast. The dinner was great. A sampling of many different things: pork and veggie hot pot, salmon and scallop sashimi, soba noodles, sesame tofu, pickled vegetables, mushrooms with buckwheat, chawan-mushi (egg custard they cooked with shrimp, edamame and mochi) to name a few. And that’s aside from the miso soup, rice and dessert. Usually with that many different flavors, it is difficult to balance them so that they don’t all taste the same or that they don’t overpower each other. The flavors were subtle, balanced and seasonal. It was wonderful to see persimmon in a few of the dishes since it is a fall fruit. The couple who owns the ryokan provided wonderful hospitality and Seiko-san (the wife) was helpful explaining things to me in English. In addition, the Shibu Onsen area has nine public onsen that you can try if you stay at a ryokan in the area. Each is said to help with various ailments (e.g., stomach/digestion, skin issues, acne, gout, women’s issues, etc.). You get a key that opens the doors to these onsen. A wonderful respite from a hectic day of traveling. Thank you to the staff of the Matsuya!
