My fiancé and I stayed at Shimaya for two nights out of a 10 day trip to Japan and it was our favorite place by far! Our hosts were as kind and helpful as one could possibly hope for, from driving us to and from the monkey park every day to suggesting delicious places to eat! We felt very welcome the whole time we were there and we were sad to leave when it came time to move onto the next place.
The accommodations themselves were superb. The whole place is very clean, the rooms are sizable, especially compared to other places we stayed. There was always hot water and green tea in the room. Our balcony looked out at the mountains and across the town. It's perfectly situated to walk anywhere in town. You can even walk to the monkey park if you want. The floor mats were very comfortable and they provided very soft and cozy quilts to keep warm. There was also a thermostat with which we could control the temperature so it wasn't cold in the rooms. There was a bathroom and a shower ensuite in our room, which was definitely a plus! They even made a nice breakfast for everyone every morning.
If I'm ever back in Yudanaka, this is where I would want to stay again. They made an already fun trip that much more enjoyable!More
