Yudanaka was a pleasant and short train trip from Nagano and the ryokan is only a couple of minutes walk from the station. The room was a fantastic classic Japanese room, very large and comfortable with beautiful furnishings. Staff were friendly and helpful. The owner even took us to see the snow monkeys and the baths, especially the outdoor one were great. This place is a good choice for people on a budget as long as they don’t mind a slightly run-down atmosphere and a less-than-impressive breakfast. Make sure you ask for the big room. It’s lovely and great value.
