Great Ryokan room, a little cold old building”

We are the only guest there as per our book dates. Only 3 people in the hotel, 2 of us and the only staff Hedai-san. We have the onsen all by ourselves. We had the ryokan room with bedroom options (not sleeping on the tatami) with a great price. The room large enough even too spacious for us two. Unfortunately the hot water in our room did not work, so we used the onsen for bath and it cost a very little of only ¥150 one time charge for using it as much as you like. The distance between Yudanaka station to Hotel was about 10-15 min walking, and it's very cold outside in December. Distance to Shibu onsen town and bus stop was about 5-7 min walk. The location was in between Yudanaka and Shibu. The master might be able to pick you up and drop you to the station or even the snow monkey park but you need to confirm the availability first with the master (He's a great hotel manager).

Beautiful place to stay in Yudanaka, and go to Snow monkey Park”

I went with my wife and daugher. The Japanese style room was impeccable. With private bathroom, bathtub and balcony with open view. Exceeded our expectations. The hotel has a thermal bath that came ideal to relax . They offer yudakas, or very nice typical robes. It also has a bar and cafeteria, with a small offer, but with very good prices, and there is a kitchen area to prepare your own food. Perhaps the main hall needs to be remodeled a little, but the Bozanso was an excellent option and definitively want to go back!

Nice stay with great customer service”

It was a great stay with onsen at Yudanaka. Heday-san was kind to pick us up from the train station & on the way to the hotel, he explained the various restaurants that are available for our dinner options. Upon reaching the hotel, he also offered to bring us to Snow Monkey park (the highlight of our trip!) & fix the time with us. Overall, a great stay on a quiet environment, onsen to ourselves & great stopover for Snow Monkey! However, on a note, the heater used in the room is oil-based so for those who are sensitive to the oil smell, this may not be for you.

Service, Price, Cleanness, has Onsen

It was a great trip. The manager came to pick us up at the train station, holding our name on a sign so we wouldn't miss it. Then he brought us to see the monkey park which saved us alot of time trying to figure out how to get there. On the next morning, it was snowing heavily but he took us to the train station. Overall we had no complication at all and would recommend this hotel to other travellers.

The owner was waiting for us outside the station, and kindly took us to the snow monkey park. Nice rooms, the Japanese bath was hot and steamy. However the decor of the reception and corridors were outdated. The town itself is a let down.

This seems to be a family owned hotel. The owner was very friendly and drove us to the restaurant since there was no restaurant in the hotel or nearby.

The conidtion of the hotel was not good, poorly mantained. The air conditioner was not properly functioned. The hot spring was small and old. In general, the hotel was not properly maintained. However, the owner was very friendly and can speak English. Since there was no restaurant in the hotel or nearnby, he drove us to the restaurant in the late evening. Good location to the snow monkey park.
