Pros: No croissants, it was genuine Japanese food
Cons: More beer & some whiskey in bar fridge
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Incredible location. Forrest view and river below were breathtaking. Nice indoor and outdoor onsens. Clean and good sized. Small balcony was lovely. Room was nice but unremakable.. We had dinner both nights. Traditional Japanese meal. Phenomenal flavors and offerings presented in a truly elegant manner.
Cons: Rooms need a facelift especially the very dated bathrooms. Disappointing wine list in restaurant. Essentially no language spoken at all other than Japanese. While the staff clearly tried to be helpful, it would have been nice to have some understanding of customs and area. Having understanding of these issues and being able to have some minimal level of interaction greatly enhances my travel experience. Couldn’t happen here as our attendant and front desk really had no facility for English. The place and customs are fascinating so that would be a welcome addition. We wanted to visit snow monkey park. I basically had to figure that out myself. Another example, my wife developed a little sore throat and wanted to gargle with some salt water. Getting salt was too much of an ordeal at a resort of this level.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: nothing to dislike at all , very nice onsen more than expectation , with a very warm welcome and highly rated service , staffs are working with hearted without doubt at all ! this is one of the best onsen i had ever visit ! definitely will return
Cons: nop
10.0 Excellent
Pros: A fantastic traditional Japanese ryokan Onsen. Loved all of it!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Luxurious Ryokan in the Japanese modern style. Outstanding service by Ryousuke-san (everybody was amazing but he was assigned to us). The food is of a very high standard and although steeped in tradition it has a slight contemporary slant. The interiors are heavenly. The setting next to the wooded slope and river is dreamlike. Thank you to the staff for making the experience so special.
Cons: Couldn’t have been better in any way.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Ryōsuke (our server) was amazing and made the experience magical. His explanations of every dish were so welcomed and his recommendations for different walks were fantastic. The other staff also were so polite and kind. The view of the forest in the lobby was breathtaking. One of the best views we have seen in our life. Definitely take the time to walk to Kamadaki Falls and visit the public onsen near it (costs about 500 yen) tell the hotel and they will prepare towels for you - we saw snow monkeys on this walk! Bit hard to get to so make sure you bring a car or use the free shuttle bus from Obuse/Suzaka! The room was very spacious and had a great view. The dinner was amazing! So delicious and the beef is some of the best we had had in our lives. The onsen were so magical and relaxing. The views were great. Overall, a truly magical stay. Great for couples as we found it very romantic. Thank you so much Fujiiso. We will be back!
Cons: I honestly can't think of anything. Even if we didn't quite love a food at dinner they would change it. The only thing is the onsen was separated for men and women. As we came as a couple we wanted to Onsen together but you can walk/drive to the waterfalls to go to a shared onsen.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Very traditional. Outstanding service. Fantastic meals. Great Onsen. Beautiful area. Peaceful.
Cons: It was tricky to get to—there is a bus you can take, but better to arrange to take the hotel shuttle in advance (limited time options) or a taxi.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Very nice service and good food
10.0 Excellent
Pros: This was one of the best experiences in my life! If anyone would like a real Japanese experience off the beaten track, I would highly recommend a stay at Fujiiso. We loved every minute of it. The food (in your own private little dining room ) was absolutely fantastic. The service was superb.
Cons: I liked everything

9.6 Excellent
Pros: Very accommodating; when I said I didn’t need the fish they brought out a steak instead. Very friendly and warm and checked in with me often to see if I was okay.
Cons: Curtains had some holes in them, but other than that the place was clean. Was a little pricy but I really could relax and enjoy myself so I’m happy with it overall.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Very friendly and helpful staff. Japanese food was terrific. Shuttle from train station and to Obese very considerate. Onsens a treat!
Cons: For those who prefer a town or very close to serious hiking this may not be the place- otherwise topnotch!!!!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We loved everything about this place. Its location in the magnificent mountains, the politeness of hotel employees, the cleanliness of the rooms and the onsens. We booked a private onsen for sunset and it was a really nice experience. The kaiseki dinner on our first night was incredible.
Cons: We stayed for 2 days and the first day we had a true kaiseki experience for dinner, which is why we were a little bit disappointed the second day because dinner was much simpler.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Great stuff, great food, great onsens, sleeping on futon is the best.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: I don’t usually give a 10/10- but for Ryokan Warabino I think this is more than deserved. We had an amazing stay- the staff was incredibly friendly and welcoming, and the room was very comfortable. Beautiful traditional Japanese room with a conservatory overlooking the garden and mountains, where you can drink some matcha tea in your traditional Ryokan bathrobe. The onsens were pretty and comfortable, and you even get a chance to visit the public onsen next to the Ryokan. Highlight of the stay were dinner and breakfast; every course is amazing- and they just keep on coming! This felt like a very luxurious retreat, where you can sample the best of Japanese hospitality.
Cons: Having to leave :) Don’t make our mistake- make sure you have some time to check out the surroundings, since there are some nice villages and bathing monkeys to be seen.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The place is run by the nicest and sweetest people I’ve ever meet. Warm, attentive, welcoming - I really can’t even put this in words. If you ever wondered how it would feel like to have a Japanese family, you can find that out here. It’s a beautiful location, everything thought through to the smallest detail. The private onset with a view to the mountains is stunning, and the washoku dinner served in the atmospheric dining room was a perfect end to our evening. We only stayed one night and took a while to get there but it was definitely worth it.

Located in Suzaka, Guest House Kura - Hostel is within a 5-minute drive of Tanaka Honke Museum and Garyu Park. Featured amenities include multilingual staff, luggage storage, and laundry facilities. Free self parking is available onsite.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The owner and her team is very very frinedly. I am also a hostel staff and I learned a lot from them.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: The place is like a home. It is full of life and people. The kitchen is like a home kitchen with foods and cups, plates etc. We are free to use the kitchen and drink tea & coffee. The staff Yuri and Marina are very warm and helpful. Yuri gave us a ride to train station because we almost miss our train. This place is not for people who want to have a quiet place. We have no problem with it and we slept well while the rest were still celebrating in the hall. We met wonderful people there.
Cons: The heater in the room can be better.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Excellent staff! Juri was awesome, even drove us to station in her little italian car :)
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The experience was great! Staying in a 130 year old raditional home with antique furniture was wonderful and the house was beautiful. The hosts were friendly and extremely helpful and generous. The guest house is a short distance from Suzaka station, convenient stores and restaurants. Ask the hosts for their recommendations for traditional foods and sights around the area. You can also rent bikes at a low cost and take a 30 minute ride through orchards to the next town Obuse, which is famous for apples and chestnuts. Near by is yudanaka, a thousand year old town famous for their hot springs trail and mountains! This a very authentic experience and I was glad to meet locals and other international travelers.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: I love this place and the staff! Very nice old japanese house with cozy communal space. Great place to meet people. The staff is very willing to help you have a good time. Stay more then one night here!
Cons: This has nothing to do with the guesthouse but I don't recommend the Snow Monkey park when there is no snow. It's just a very small park with some monkeys. Instead it's maybe nicer to explore nearby mountains and visit Obuse.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: I want to first say that in 3 months of travelling in Japan, this has been one of the most integrated and exciting adventures I’ve had. Marina-san invited us to go bamboo picking (which we used to make miso soup and Marina even rustled up some pizzas from them..) with her local friends, we went to various onsen in the area, and I was even lucky to be able to borrow her car to go places nearby easily (I was carrying an international drivers permit which was necessary for this). I felt like more of a friend than a customer really. Thank you thank you and I hope you have me back! Also for those looking to get off the path a bit then this is surely a way to get your own unique experience out of Nagano and meet the locals!
Cons: If you have lots of suitcases you may want to get a cab from the station but its possible without!
9.6 Excellent
Pros: I really love this guesthouse and hope I'll be able to go there again in the future. The guesthouse itself is a lovely house built in the traditional Japanese style, which lets you experience the Japanese way of life first hand. The staff was extremely helpful, nice and welcoming. They would help me organize my travel, book bus rides, give me detailed information about the nearby attractions and restaurants and would even sit down with me every evening to teach me Japanese calligraphy. Especially the time in the evening I spent with the staff and other guests in the living room was always a blast and really made you feel like your part of the Kura family. If I ever got the opportunity to stay there again, I wouldn't hesitate and seize it!
Cons: From the station you have to walk for about 12 minutes. Other than that, there was absolutely nothing I didn't like about this guesthouse.
7.5 Good
Pros: Friendly staff, they were very welcoming and helpful! Cosy house with a warm atmosphere. Futon beds on tatami floor were extremely comfortable and warm! I could find all what I needed in the kitchen.
Cons: The dormitory was crowded with just few space left after the futons were rolled out. It was noisy in the living room late in the evening, so I struggled to fall asleep.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: One of the best experiences I've had travelling anywhere. Although not the best facilities and a bit of a ways from the big cities, the house has an undeniable charm that is bolstered by the amazingly kind people you'll meet here. This place seems to be pretty popular in the area as locals drop in all the time and plenty of repeat visitors. Although the staff speak English, this is also a great place to practice your Japanese. Would absolutely love to come back someday

8.3 Excellent
Pros: Good clean accommodation. Beds comfortable . Nice onsen. Variety of Japanese choices and fresh rolls for breakfast. There are lots of restaurants in the immediate area, several within walking distance. Handy to get to the nearby ski fields. Free brewed coffee in the lobby is always nice. I would stay here again
Cons: A bit expensive. Staff have effectively no English . I would expect more of a chain such as this to train their people in the English language. On the plus side the stuff to try to be helpful and are always pleasant. Mr Kobayashi was especially helpful. His English was better than anybody else's and he spoke fluent Italian.
7.1 Good
Pros: Convenient for Snow Monkeys if you have your own vehicle and good value. Staff were friendly and spoke some English.
Cons: Double rooms can be basically taken up by the bed as in many business hotels in smaller towns in Japan.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The location of this hotel is superb. Conveniently located within walking or a short drive away from food and convenient stores. The supermarket is a 5 mins drive away and there is a very good reatautant service ala cart as well as buffet shabu shabu. The hotel Onsen is well designed, clean and has everything you need. The room is cleaned daily and the cleanliness is very high quality. The buffet breakfast menu is very complete and the food items are different everyday. What I love most is the coffee bean machine which is conveniently located at the lobby. It is one of the better Japanese coffee I had. The staff are always ready to greet and help whenever you needed. Well designed hotel with great service. I will definitely plan my next travel according to this hotel chain location. Highly recommended.
Cons: Nothing. Even the colour of the bed linen is nice.
