My family and I had a great experience staying at this family run Ryoken. The room was well appointed in the traditional style, the staff set up the beds at night, and the hearty breakfast (Japanese and Western; your choice) was prepared with great care and hospitality. Wonderful view of the snow covered mountains from the room! The family owners...

This was a wonderful ryokan. Shino and her family do a great job in making you feel welcome and at home in their ryokan. The onsen is nice, and the rooms are traditional Japanese rooms with a comfortable bed and nice views of the mountain. The morning I left, Shino prepared a bento box for me because she knew I...

This family-owned ryokan is a true representation of omotenashi! Situated just 5 min walk from the Happo Bus Terminal, this is an excellent place to stay in Hakuba if you are looking to ski around this area. We had initially planned to walk from the bus terminal to the ryokan on arrival but as it was cold and snowing heavily...

The hospitality of the ryokan owners blew us away! We arrived at happo bus terminal without a connecting bus to maruni ryokan and it was snowing heavily. Made a call to the ryokan and the ojisan drove to pick us up! Besides that, they were very hospitable, and made us feel at home with the complimentary Christmas cake on Christmas...

We travelled as a family of 4 first-time skiiers not knowing exactly what to expect. Maruyama-san and his family at this wonderful little family-run inn did a fantastic job of looking after us. Apart from picking us up from the bus terminal on arrival and dropping us back when we were leaving, there were multiple occasions when they (Maruyama-san, his...

The family and staff here went above and beyond for us during our 4 night stay, running us to and from the station, calling and checking snow lifts for us, and always being willing to have a friendly chat. The accom itself was exceedingly comfortable, and having the onsen after a hard day on the slopes was a dream! 10...

To start, let me just say that staying at this ryokan should a no-brainer for the majority of people. The only exception may be those expecting a 4- or 5-star Western-style hotel, and aren't open to alternatives: if that's you, then give this a skip. Everyone else, read on... I was skiing/snowboarding with my brother, and we were in Hakuba...

This hotel is well situated five mins walk from the bottom of happo-one slopes. The staff are charming and attentive, and kindly offered to drive us to and from Hakuba station either side of our stay. The rooms are spacious and the futon mattresses are quite soft compared with some Ryokans in Japan! Only suggestion would be a choice of...

I was blown away by my first Japanese inn experience. We were welcomed warmly and treated as royalty the entire 5 night stay. The rooms were very clean, and I had no issues with the space or facilities. Floor and bedding was a new experience for me (tatami mats and thin mattresses) but after a day of skiing we had...
