Entrance to Seifuso Ryokan

I stayed at a ryokan in Yudanaka Onsen the other day. The private onsen bath was quite nice.

The elder owners speak only Japanese but the young manager (my friend) can speak a bit of English and he is very helpful. If you are looking for a real traditional ryokan near the Yudanaka Station, I would recommend the place. Yudanaka is the end staition of Nagano Dentetsu that comes from Nagano Station.

Also Yudanaka onsen is one of the hot spring places with convenient access to Jigokudani Yaen Koen (the Snow Monkey Park or Onsen Monkeys). Anyone interested in staying in the affordable ryokan with the old wooden building, check out his English blog site at http://ameblo.jp/yudanaka-seifuso/


About Shuichiro (Inactive)

My name is Shu Ono and I became self-employed 4 years ago and started my own tourism business called Jissen Inbound. I just wanted to introduce myself and my travel journal which I will try my best to keep updated with all my trips in Nagano (both business and pleasure. Just a little about myself: I'm originally from Osaka, Japan, the second largest city in Japan. But after graduation from an university in Tokyo, I spent about 4 years in other coutnries - Australia, USA and England. Please don't ask me which food I like - fish & chips or hamburger. :) I like Japanese foods very much. Recently I'm really interested in Japanese calligraphy andI play golf which I hope to do so this coming summer in Nagano. Also I love traveling Japan. I'm happy with what I'm doing in business because my clients are usually ryokans and hotels in coutryside including Nagano. I hope to use my experiences to make contributions to the Nagano tourism blog site. TKsyusyu
