Great Ryokan. Huge rooms. Perfect location. Have their own onsen = amazing! The food was delicious and so well presented. Everyone was wonderful and the origami Yoda we were given on checking out was incredible. Absolutely recommend this place.
Atmosphere - The entire complex is great, it feels like stepping back in time. Facilities - The room was neatly kept, the aircon did its job & the futon was cosy. I loved the yukata & haori provided. The property has two indoor onsen, of which one is reserved for women, one for men and they switch daily, so you will be able to try both if you stay overnight. The outdoor onsen is lovely - whoever comes first, puts up a wooden sign to show if the onsen is in use for women, men or in private use. Staff - The staff was very nice and explained how things worked in detail. Location - It was very close to the bus stop to Yudanaka and the Snow Monkey Park.
The big outdoor onsen was way too hot for me. That might have been just on the day, though. :) The inside onsen was a great temperature.
This traditional Japanese Inn is amazing. For a traditional Japanese experience this Ryoken has everything. Robes are provided, the staff is friendly and feeling of being transported to cued all Japan is amazing. Comfortable rooms. Fantastic food. Excellent Onsen. Situated in the middle of Shibu onsen, you could stay two or three days here very comfortably. There is an attached origami museum with incredible works of origami on display. It has been the quintessential experience of japan.
English communication can be hard, especially with the owner. Otherwise they do a fantastic job.
The staff was extremely helpful. English spoken. An authentic Japanese omotenashi experience. Best onsen (outdoor & indoor) in town.
I've stayed for 3 nights at Hishiya Torazo in Feb. 2020. It's a very traditional Ryokan - about 400 years old. It's been owned by the same family all the time. The rooms are typical Japanese with tatami mats and futon beds. Breakfast is served at 8 am sharp. Its traditional Japanese served in a separate room. The shared bathroom is the Onsen of which the Ryokan has three incl one outdoor one open all day and night. The owners are super nice even they don’t speak much English. If you want traditional Japanese this is the place to go!
With the age of the building also come a few challenges: the rooms are very cold in winter and there is only limited amount of hot water coming from the tap in the room.
With a stay at Hishiya Torazo in Yamanouchi, you'll be a 3-minute drive from Shiga Kogen Ski Area and 8 minutes from Jigokudani Monkey Park. Self parking (subject to charges) is available onsite.
