My wife and I stayed here one night in summer when we booked an open trip to Karuizawa/Nikko with no set plans for a few days outside of Tokyo on our vacation. Though we went sightseeing most of the day we had a hard time reserving online ryokans or pensions without easily available wifi in the area and ended up seeing many unused cabins and cottages without any contact info. The owners/couple that run this place took us in on short notice immediately and were helpful; it is behind a large pet place on the left and opposite of the Paradise American memorabilia store exactly 1km north of the JR shinkansen station on the main street.

There is a posted nonsmoking sign and upon first impression is a bit outdated but clean and tidy. The whole place has about 8-10 rooms and the shared toilets and bathrooms were quaint and also clean with provided soap/shampoo. The rooms upstairs (2F) are just like...

We booked a room with private bath and toilet, spacious and roomy, but all that simply, just bed, lights and power supply and wifi too, but its all enough for us though.

The food is the main theme for Uehara Pension, the owner/chef prepared hearty dinner and breakfast, I would say if you prepare to stay in Uehara Pension, you have to take the 1 stay and 2 meals package, instead of room only.

Owner Kiyotaka Takeuchi and his wife were very kind and friendly, also attentive to every your need, even though we did not attend to the hair dryer at the end of the corridor, instead we asked for another one, she...
