Truly Japanese and quiet interior atmosphere. Wild flowers in vase and lanterns made of "washi", Japanese traditional paper... Japanese style enfolds everything, and time flows slowly and calmly. Flowers are arranged by O-okami, the grand landlady, everyday.

Enjoy the artworks standing among forest, cool wind coming over the valley, and the scent of green mountains. The river stream is just 7 to 8min walk through the path from the ryokan.

We were able to spend a slow, relaxing time. The mushrooms served let us enjoy the season, and was all very delicious. I definitely wanted to visit with my family, and so I made a reservation for the new years next year. This is one of my favorite Japanese style inn. + More

I stayed here after a friend of mine talked about it. As neither myself or my wife drink much, we felt the Kaiseki-ryori (a multi-course traditional dinner) took a bit too long to be served. In total, we remained sit in chairs for about 2 hours, and got a little tired. I think a tatami room would have been better. The front lobby was spacious and comfortable. I was looking forward about the moon-viewing tower, but sadly it was a cloudy night. There were some chairs at the tower, but I wish there were some small tables too. I want to stay here again in the red leaves season. + More

As soon as I arrived, I was escorted to a table along the gorge, where the glass door was wide open, and was served green tea. I explored the gorge, took a hot spring bath, and had dinner in the private room. Started from the aperitif, the desert and the tea called bean tea were all good. Especially the soup, Hagimanjyu, and Shinshu soba with Name mushrooms and grated radishes were very delicious. The food and soup of the mountain village are my favorite, so I fully enjoyed. The sweet red-bean soup with chestnuts was also good. It was so tasty that I would miss. On top of the meal, the plates and dishes were wonderful, so I could enjoy double. The staffs were nice and clean, and it gave me a good impression that they could explain the dishes well and respond smoothly to the questions. I was taught that it is a famous place for the foliage season which is wonderful during the season. I headed home wishing that I could take a hot spring bath gazing at the gorge which is colored by red, yellow and green and enjoy the meal again. + More

The staff members offer very friendly services, and matcha-tea and small round cookie of soba served with the welcome tea were very tasty. The room was peaceful, and looking from the moon-viewing balcony you can see the mountains with groges in between, I think it will be looking great in the foliage season. We had the "course of grilled mushrooms" as it was their season. We tried taking the "village community bath" in front of the ryokan. It was compact yet kept clean, the bath was very hot but I could enjoy my stay. It was the accommodation I definitely want to visit again. + More

Quiet, warm hospitality, a nice inn for adults. The lobby lounge is open and comfortable, and the view of Matsukawa Canyon from there is absolutely amazing. Definitely I will visit there in autumn again. The restaurant had private rooms and we were relaxed and enjoyed the food. The hospitality is perfect at a comfortable distance so it is very good for people who want to relax in the inn. + More

I have stayed here for the first time. Welcome arriving and entertaining with powdered green tea while listening to koto performance, there were such hospitality like forgetting the daily life soon after arriving, so that relaxed my mind. The mountain range from the lobby or the room was wonderful like a picture according to the name of Ryokkasan-shuku. The outdoors of the lobby was lighted up beautifully at night. I have taken a bath three times, it was comfortable because it was cleaned up all the time. Dishes for breakfast and dinner were very elaborate and delicious. They were served with good timing. I thought the number of staff were never a lot, but I felt their kindness everywhere in the inn, it was heart-warming. When we were leaving in the rain, they saw us off the whole time while waving their hands, the scene remained in my mind. I was sure to stay at this inn again. + More

I was nice that the outdoor bath had a roof so I could still dip even when it was raining. As for the dinner, every food starting from the soup was satisfyingly delicious. The breakfast was a bit too much in quantity for us so we sadly had leftovers. (Particularly, only a half would already be enough for the omelet) I understand that you were being courteous with your hospitality, but I just detest excessive services. In my opinion, the hotel would be even more wonderful if you serve a bit more in accordance to your guest's feeling. I will be expecting your hotel to become more and more splendid from now. + More

It was the first time for me to stay in Fujiiso and I managed to spend a relaxed time with good service and food. The hot spring manju (ban with bean jam filling) that you can purchase by reservation was tasty too. I would like to stay here again next time I go travel to Nagano area. + More

I stayed with my mother who is senile and had trouble walking. I chose the ryokan because they had beds, and it really helped that it was also well furbished with handrails. I find it strange, but still glad that the staffs who are usually not around showed up to help when we're in trouble. I am impressed that every one of the staff goes above their professional duties in their service. I wonder if the staff assigned to our room has a nursing qualification, because she was good at providing guidance to my mother. Also, something more troubling happened due to the senility, but "Please don't let it bother you ", she said and took in everything. This is indeed a first class ryokan. The food and room were both amazing, and above all, I had a really comfortable stay with the thoughtful customer service. Both of the promenade which I couldn't walk this time and the resting place I glanced on my way had good atmosphere, it made me want to come spend some more times someday. + More

There were not many people in the large bathhouse after summer holidays, and I liked the quiet atmosphere. It seems like they devoted all of their energies to the floor where the lobby is located, where you can enjoy the beautiful view of the green of their vaunted mountains from the counter. However I strongly felt that they were trying to cut down on their expenses on bath amenities, for example by charging for after dinner coffee, installing a unit bath for guest rooms, not providing any shampoo and conditioner unless you ask, or any face towel, notepad etc.. I can't believe you can't use wifi in your room in this modern era. It was unfortunate while the guest room was relatively good. I wouldn't come back unless they invest a bit more fund and improve their service in the future. + More
