          So welcoming with amazing onsen!”

          Thank you to the staff of this wonderful ryokan. They were so welcoming and kind, making our stay there very comfortable. We didn’t get to try any food due to our schedule, but the care they showed us was the perfect example of hospitality; they even took great care of our shoes! The private onsen experience was the best we had on our 2 week trip as it was in the large outdoor bath that most places would have for communal bathing. Unique and special. Thank you to all the staff for an amazing experience.

          Amazing little Ryokan - Stay here after snow monkeys”

          If you've come all the way out to Yudanaka to go up to Jigokudani Yaen Koen and see the snow monkeys, then it is absolutely worth your time and money to stay in this quaint town where things move slower. If you do that, then Tawaraya Ryokan should be at the top of your list. The ryokan is within walking distance from the train station / bus station, but not so close that you can hear the noise. The ryokan is plain looking on the outside, but the inside shows a great traditional design. It is a small place with only a few rooms, so because of that each room can be spacious. The room was a good size for relaxing. The staff provide quality service that you cannot find just anywhere. They are friendly, accommodating, and observant of guest needs. They are also very polite, this is one of those places where the hostess will sit and chat with you on the first night to help you get settled in. The public and private bath are both well-kept. The private bath is outside which makes for a uniquely Japanese experience. Absolutely an inn that I want to return to time and time again.

          Most enjoyable ryokan experience ”

          The staff really went beyond to help us feel comfortable with whatever we needed, despite the language barrier of us not knowing Japanese. The interior of the ryokan is beautiful and the outdoor onsen especially in the winter is breathtaking. Though it can get cold, the rooms are provided with efficient heating and the location is such a close walk to Yudanaka Station. Absolutely recommend this stay.

          Great !”

          We've had a great time at this family owned ryokan. The rooms were well equipped, the staff very welcoming, friendly and fluent in english. We enjoyed the ryokan being within walking distance to the train station and good restaurants, as well as the ryokan-dinner we had booked for the last night (absolutely recommended). Another thing to mention is the beautiful and relaxing onsen. They provide both an indoor and outdoor onsen option and guests can even book their own slot to enjoy a private half hour at the outside onsen every evening free of charge. Thank you very much :-)

          Excellent stay at small ryokan in Yudanaka”

          Very friendly and personalized experience. The staff speak English well. The indoor/outdoor baths were very pleasant. They offered a private reservation time for the outdoor bath. The ryokan has only a few rooms so it’s not very crowded. The food for both dinner and breakfast was excellent. Dinner was a ¥6,000 add-on per person, which was reasonable considering the quality and quantity of the food. The Japanese style room was very clean. They have a private toilet but shower facilities are shared, with the bath. The rooms are heated and air-conditioned. The location is close to Yudanaka train station, but down a very steep hill. It’s in a sleepy residential neighbourhood, but there are a few restaurants up the hill about a 10 minute walk. It’s about 30 minutes by bus + 40 minutes walk to the Snow Monkey Park.
