Tateyama Murodo Sanso
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 August 2014

You can see great wonderful scenery in own your room.
It is very convenient place to climb Mt.Tateyama.
Dinner and Breakfast is to eat too unpalatable dishes what it mean to the cooking is poor.
So I recomend that you could take something favorite foods.

Murodo is definitely an incredible and awesome place to visit! This ryokan was booked via Japanican without breakfast and dinner package. It offers breathtaking view, tranquil environment and surrounded by those gorgeous mountains. The rooms are clean, comfortable and spacious. The ryokan also serve food like curry rice, japanese noodle and beef bowl in the range of 700yen to 800 yen. Still, it is worth the price and cheap as compared to those pricey hotels out there in Tateyama.

recently a friend was relating his experience to izu several years back when it was hit by earthquake (i think it was 2009). they were rushing for the train & had bad food then. a few of us were surprised that one could have bad food in japan as even the cheap train station bentos & supermarket food were all pretty good.

well now i had my own experience of singularly bad food at tateyama murodou sansou (立山室堂山庄) – or google translate to mountain hut. the food was downright sucky. i guess it was to be expected as it was more like a “mountain hut”, and in fact a rather cosy place for serious trekkers c/w camping in the mountains, except that we paid 22000yen for 1 night with 2 meals for a room with no attached toilet & they gave you 1 face towel (no bath towel) for the onsen bath.

looking at the dinner items, i would not pay 1000yen for it & many 1000yen bentos would be better. in fact the same kitchen was open till 3pm & we had a very passable curry rice for 700yen (& the same with soba & gyudon ie beef on rice etc) which would be as good as the tempura, salmon & rice with pickles for dinner. compare this with the kaiseki dinner @ greenview-tateyama which cost 25000yen for 2pax with attached toilet & bath & 2 meals, and with a good size yu 湯 (japanese for hot water ie onsen baths). or with senjusou which costs 15800yen, equally basic but far better dinner & breakfast meals.

breakfast was an equally bad affair.

the place was ran by a team of youngsters like students, with only 1 older man in the kitchen & 1 at the front desk. it was efficiently run though and service was polite & competent. everything is relative, so i guess a hut is a luxury c/w camping in the mountains but it is also relative to price. to me the 2 meals should be charged at no more than 2000yen pax & the room maybe 8000yen so it should be more like 12000yen than 22000yen. still this was 2450m, and not so many options available (we could not get the tateyama hotel at murodou station & raichoso would really be a bad choice some distance up the mountain route).

in the end it is all about matching needs. for those doing serious trekking and rather not camp out, there would be reason to take this option. in our case for the current trip, we needed no more than 2hrs to walk around the ponds route & overlooking the hell’s valley(& likewise 2hrs max for the boardwalks at midagahara), so we would be better off just passing through midagahara & murodou on a day trip. rather than staying at tateyama or midagahara or murodou, we would be better off staying at toyama & omachi onsen ryokans. if we should decide to do more serious trekking, we could then plan differently & perhaps we could still stay here but LESS the meals. i would much rather have a 700yen gyudon from their kitchen & a soba from murodou station.

Room Tip: no need to stay overnight at midagahara or murodou unless you are doing serious trekking...the alpin...

This was a very nice and quaint simple hotel. We had a great stay here and they also had these different tea's inside the room for us to try. I especially liked this tea that was made from mushrooms that was an unusually pleasant taste. The hotel staff are also very friendly and the guide's are also helpful. We went hiking around the hotel and we were able to see the sun set from the mountain beside the hotel. It was another dreamlike experience. I think during the summer more people go there however going during fall wasn't that bad. All in all it is a great place to stay in.

This is very nice and friendly place. Rooms are very basic, but you can find here everything you want to rest, so comfortable bed and fresh air are avaible. Service is very friendly and kind, but it is normal in Japan. It is good choice for accomodation

My husband and I had a great stay here in early June of 2012. We had a big room to ourselves, made our own futon beds, and enjoyed a nice onsen. There were a bunch of futon mats in the room so we stacked them up to make it more comfortable. It didn't seem like they'd all been recently washed, though so it was nice to use our silk sleep sack. The food was pretty decent (stay came with dinner and breakfast) and the staff were really nice. It's pretty basic, but very clean for a mountain hut and probably the more reasonably-priced accommodation for Tateyama.
