So much to say about Shibu Hotel so let me start with the big points - Free pickup from Yudanaka Station - you can transfer here from Nagano (go down the steps). Call the Shibu Hotel when you know your train time - Free transfer to the Snow Monkey Onsen leafing you to do the last 10 mins on flat ground - MUCH appreciated - Free secure key access to 9 Onsen in the town + 3 at the Ryokan = TWELVE Onsens are for your use. Ask for the ‘souvenir towel’ (in red envelope) and you can get a stamp for visiting each Onsen + a 10th stamp from a small shrine above Onsen number 9. Check the example of a completed towel to the right of reception. The hotel is a Ryokan which means traditional Japanese style without skimping on quality. There are some basic rules about Ryokan the owners will be all too happy to explain to you which are simple things like leaving your shoes at the door. Optionally you can wear a sized Yukata (similar to a kimono) for your stay and even when visiting the neighbouring onsens (it makes changing easier and you won’t look out of place). They’ll be ready and welcoming with a smile and “make yourself at home” mantra that is embodied thoughout your stay.

Wonderful Traditional Stay

Hotel itself is becoming a bit dilapidated. Any lacking of hotel condition is made up with the friendliness and service of the staff. They treat you like family and happily go the extra mile to ensure an enjoyable stay.
