    Nice ryokan, pretty quiet. Did not see any other guests when we were there. Had hotpot for dinner which was good and very filling! Meals can be requested by directly messaging the hotel on Facebook. Rooms were a little small for 3-4 people than what I would have preferred but it was a relatively comfortable size for a bunch of small-sized people. No heater in the toilet so might be a deal breaker for some people especially in the winter. Otherwise great service and nice place. There is also free pick up service from the station (which we did not utilise) and free parking on site.

    What a lovely welcome we had, the staff is amazing! Everyone tried their best to make our stay special, they also drove us to the station in Karuizawa! The ryokan is very clean, the room spacious and beautiful, and the location is in a quiet area, very close to popular Harunire Terrace and Hoshino onsen. Highly recommended!!!

    Good value traditional Japanese hotel

    It’s overall a good traditional Japanese hotel to stay with such price. Cleanliness is good. The staff was helpful. The location is great, near some popular spots in karuizawa. We recommending driving a car though.

    Authenticity and service

    Service was excellent. Concierge recommended a fantastic restaurant that exceeded our expectations. This is also located in a nicer, more charming area of Karuizawa than the main drag. The onsen was simple but great for a relaxing bath at the end of the day. The hotel shows its age, and ryokan style perhaps isn’t for everyone, with futon beds and shared bathrooms and tatami mats, but the Japanese people we spoke to informed us it was a very authentic experience, and we enjoyed it very much. Dinner at the ryokan was also quite good, but the local restaurants really blew us away. Don’t miss the Sawa Mara bakery, just a five minute walk from the hotel.
