Liked: Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The owner and her husband were extremely nice people. The room was great for 3 people, it had two separate rooms for sleeping (each large enough to fit the 3 of us) and a private toilet and sink. There were 2 shared kitchens and 2 (maybe 3?) shared showers in the annex where we stayed. They had a nice mineral bath also in the main lodge. The van shuttle from the train station was nice because it wasn't really within walking distance (~10 min drive). The free bike rental was also very nice to bike around the area and to the train station and castle. Location was a little far from things, but it was right on a river in a nice residential area. Great value accommodation for the money in Matsumoto.

Disliked: A little far from the castle and train station

Liked: The welcome we got from the moment we arrived was amazing, and the owners were so helpful with any little query, and gave us amazing annotated maps with recommendations and comments. Although the ryokan is slightly out of town this gave us the chance to use the free bikes on offer, and on a nice day (which is all we experienced) it is a really lovely easy ride along the river into the centre of town in about 10 mins- this coming from a couple where neither of us have been on a bike in about 5 years! It's almost better to be further out so you get the cycle ride.

Disliked: nothing

Liked: The ryokan and facilities are nice, but what sets it apart is the friendliness and hospitality of the family who owns the place. They made the trip to Matsumoto very warm and welcoming.

Disliked: It is a bit far if you're wanting to walk anywhere. But they have bicycles and buses nearby. And even picked us up at the train station!

Liked: The idea of a Ryokan is to stay and eat breakfast and dinner. You have an option at this Ryokan. It was clean, offered a bath using local hot springs, you can be picked and dropped off at the station and provided the 'usual' things you get in a Ryokan - Ukata, tea facilities, toothbrush and paste, towels etc.

Disliked: It was a fair distance from the centre of Matsumoto. You can get a bus or taxi of course but you cant walk from the station and cant walk into town if you want to eat or go shopping etc

Liked: comfortable, peaceful and very good value. Very nice staff go out of their way to look after you, they even have handwritten maps of restaurants/bars/sights , its a nice touch.I would highly recommend.

Disliked: bit of a distance from the train station and castle, but they will pick you up and loan you bikes which makes it all very easy.

Liked: Mr. Ichiro Yumoto is probably the nicest and most attentive man on the planet. From the experience with the hot bath to the food to the traditional Japanese style accommodation. The experience was amazing!

Disliked: The smell of the rooms were a little wierd due to the carpet.
