Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I have nothing but good things to say about this oasis of rest at the end of a long hike. It looks like I am echoing the positive things which have already been written in the reviews of this Ryokan by others who have been hiking the Nakasendo Way. The onsen is amazing, the food is delicious, and the staff welcoming and helpful. The rooms and meals are traditional Japanese. They take obvious pride in the beauty of the gardens, and the walls of the Ryokan are hung with gallery art and photography.

After a long soak in the onsen, my wife and I slept quite well on comfortable futon. And on waking, out the window is a view of the Kiso Valley and Mt Ontake.

We stayed one night in April 2013 during our walk on the Nakasendo way, and this was our best accommodation experience in 3 weeks in Japan.

The staff are wonderful and attentive. Pickup and dropoff at Kiso-Fukushima station is included and flexible. Just call them to let them know you are at the station.

We had a room on the 3rd floor, which was beautiful. It was huge, suspect 12-16 tatamis, and had a spotless private bathroom. This may be what the previous reviewer mentions as a new room. At night there was complete silence due to the location of the ryokan.

The onsen was wonderful. A large pool indoors as well as a smaller pool outdoors.

The highlight of our stay was dinner. The dining room is a wonderful large place, and the kaiseki dinner was sensational. Delicious and varied. Would highly recommend including the dinner, in any case, there are no other eating options without getting transport back to Kiso-Fukushima.

I spent 1 night in this ryokan during my Nakasendo journey. I arrived by train to Kiso-Fukushima train station, and as agreed, called the ryokan. A young lady dressed in a kimono picked me up by car at the station and we arrived at the ryokan after approx. 10 minutes. The ryokan is located in a forest.
There are 3 types of rooms, all Japanese style: the "oldest" as they called it, without bathroom/WC. The "old" with en-suite bathroom and the "new" with en-suite bathroom. I picked the "old" room in the middle price range (JPY14,850) so can't comment on the quality or differences of other room types. Dinner and breakfast were included in the price.
My room was I believe 8 tatami, with an adjacent small room (behind the paper sliding door) with 2 chairs, little table and a small fridge. Even though I had a bathroom in my room, I decided to use the hotel bath. The facilities were clean, body wash and shampoo provided. There are 2 pools in the hotel bath, one inside and one outside. The outside pool is surrounded by trees and it was very relaxing lying in hot water watching the sky.
Dinner and breakfast were the usual 10(?) courses of high quality.
The staff were very helpful and attentive. I had been on the road for few days by then, mostly walking, and the staff provided me with cooling wraps for my legs - I did not ask for this, but as soon as they heard about my trip they pulled out the First Aid box and gave me several wraps.
There are no laundry facilities in the ryokan - I keep mentioning this all the time. I took only a small backpack for my hike so needed to wash my clothing often. The problem with handwash is that it never dries fully overnight, the nights in August are simply too hot and humid.
There is again a car service in the morning for guests to the railway station in Kiso-Fukushima.
Overall, I had a great stay at Komanoyu, I would have wished to spend more time there as I did not have a chance to explore the surroundings.

Room Tip: As the ryokan is situated amidst the greenery I think that all rooms are quiet.

I barely have the words to describe how wonderful this ryokan is, but I'm going to give it a shot. First, this is my third stay in Japan in the past 10 yrs, and I've stayed at a variety of hotels and ryokans. While this may not be the absolute fanciest (although it is not exactly rustic ) it is unmatched in its hospitality and charm. First, the setting is gorgeous. A bit of a drive in a free shuttle outside Kiso Fukushima set into the woods. The rooms are large, with a sleeping area, sitting area, and private bathroom with a shower. The facility itself has a Library for relaxed reading, a little gift shop, and beautiful Gardens viewed from all the windows. But all this aside, it is the staff that really make this place special. They bend over backwards to make sure you have whatever you need. This includes the food. We don't eat meat, but we love fish. When they were serving shabu-shabu, which traditionally features beef, instead of just substituting fish for meat we had vegetarian shabu-shabu PLUS a full, gorgeous sashimi course. And udon, and 2 soups, and 3 appetizers, and pickles, and...and... you get the idea. Can't recommend this place more highly!!

This ryokan is exactly what I needed after a long day on the Nakasendo trail.

The staff are exceptional. A gentleman was waiting at the train station to pick up anyone arriving at that time. Once he collected his charges he whisked us off to the ryokan located a few miles out of town.

Dinner that night has been the best meal I’ve had in Japan so far. Course after course the food was delicious. I lost track of the number of courses, but the food just kept coming and it was always enjoyable. Breakfast didn’t let down either and as a bonus coffee was available!

The traditional tatami room was very large and had a full ensuite. However, I did not find this necessary as Komanoyu has excellent onsen facilities including both indoor and outdoor pools. The onsen are the perfect cure for tired and sore muscles.

We had a really nice stay at this ryokan. The baths were very nice , especially the outdoor one. The dinner was delicious. If you like sake, I highly recommends local sake which they have on their menu. They are outside of town, but they pick you up and drop you off at the station. On clear nights, they run a stargazing tour. Unfortunately, it was drizzling the night we stayed so no tour. We got a very good deal from their website and stayed in the new wing for an unbelievably reasonable price. Kiso-Fukushima itself is not so interesting compared to other villages on Nakasendo, but it is worth staying at this ryokan.

We spent a comfortable night here on our autumn leaf viewing through the Kiso Valley. The inn is located in the beautiful countryside. A phone call from the train station brings a passenger van to pick up guests. The inn is an older small traditional ryokan slightly dated, in need of fresh paint in some of the older bedrooms, and in our room a sink replacement. The very friendly service was easy to understand. The meals were well suited to Western food tastes. We enjoyed sitting around a table in the central dinning room rather than on the floor. The meal was pretty to look at and delicious. There was no problem meeting our groups special requests of no fish or shrimp. The outdoor onsen was lovely... not too hot or crowded. We enjoyed our stay here. and felt very welcomed.

We walked for 3 days on the Nakasendo Trail and stayed here on our second night, following a stay at minshuku in O-Tsumago (which we also enjoyed). Fantastic service, starting with the driver who was at the train station when we arrived to the staff who managed to find a gown large enough for my husband. The outstanding features here, besides the top-rate service, are the wonderful meals, the onsen (especially the outside portion) and the overall serenity of this place. I also really liked that my sleeping mat was heated. Enjoy!

Previous reviews are entitled “wonderful stay”, “this is Japan “. We cannot agree more.

The staff picked us up from Kiso-Fukushima station and checking through to our room was effortless. The room was spacious but the air conditioning was struggling a little.

The onsen is superb and relaxing after long walk from Tsumago.

The dinner and breakfast were as good as we’d experienced in Japan and all staff were courteous and service beyond superb.

We checked out the following morning and our shoes had been washed and cleaned. The hotel took us back to the station.

It was drizzling when we got there but the hospitality was warm. The ryokan is amazing. It is away from the main town and the ryokan sends a van to pick us up from the train station. The room overlooks lush greenery and the public baths are big. The water composition of the public baths have supposed medicinal properties (but I couldn’t understand for what ailments). In any case, the ryokan makes a good relaxing getaway.

I think it was about $130 per person, I had pre paid as a part of a walking tour and so don't know but a fellow traveller quoted something like that. If that was the price then although that might sound expensive (ask them the price) it was really a wonderful experience with the best meal and a great hot spa and a night time star gazing
