Thank you Keiko and Tomimo for a memorable stay - we only wished we had arranged a two night stay instead of one. We were greeted with seaweed tea and soba noodle sweets on arrival (both were delicious). We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, the room was very comfortable and clean - we slept very soundly. We chose the Matsu course dinner and were delighted with the private dinning, our host Keiko and the food. We specifically came with an open mind and wanted to try the various Japanese foods, I loved that I ate things I would not normally at home - and - it was delicious! I especially loved the tea which Keiko gave me some extra on our departure which I now drink at home and remember our stay. We enjoyed all the onsens in the public bathhouses and had fun collecting the stamps, We completed our evening with the the private one on site at Matsuya - it was fantastic and would rate it the best. The next morning I had time to look at some of the shops before a large spread was laid out for breakfast then Tomimo took us up to the Monkeys and then kindly dropped our luggage to be minded for us close to the station. The monkeys did not dissapoint and were amazing- there was a pretty scenic walk through the woods back down to the bus to take us to the station before heading out.... I had read a lot of reviews about Yudanaka and Shibu Onsen before our trip and laboured over which place to book. I am extremely happy that we chose Matsuya. The friendly hosts who have right to be proud of their establishment, the comfort, food and location made it good value for money. I would not pay more for one of the larger establishments and then miss out on the personal experience.
We would reccommend this place to anyone wanting a true Japanese traditional experience.
