We stayed here for the first two nights of our trip to Japan. The trains from Tokyo, then Nagano to Obuse were easy; the hotel itself was a little difficult to find, maybe because we were tired and jet-lagged. Once ensconced in a blissfully comfortable room, we were able to unwind and recover completely: the enormous glass bath was ideal for this. We ate twice at The Club restaurant just across the road - recommended for great atmosphere and food at a reasonable price. The staff (one is from the US) took very good care of us and we enjoyed the atmosphere of the inn and all the ameneties close by such as the Hokusai Museum, sake brewery and various chestnut-themed shops. I'd say it is a fairly (Japanese) touristy but very quaint and tasteful place to stay. It was also a good and luxurious base to visit the Jigodanku snow monkey park, which was less than an hour away by scenic train and bus. (I see that the Masuichi Kakayuden website now offers a package that includes transport to the park.)
