Welcome to Yudanaka Onsen Seifuso.

  • Location: 2 minutes walk from Yudanaka Station in Yudanaka Onsen
  • Category of style: Traditional ryokan
  • Description: an ideal place for visiting the famous Wild Monkey Park or Jigokudani Yaen Koen (Snow monkeys park, 20 minutes by bus and walk), Ryuo Ski Resort (30 minutes by free shuttle bus) or Obuse, Suzaka (40 minutes by train). A traditional Japanese style guesthouse, only 2 minutes walk from Yudanaka Station and we are at Yudanaka Onsen, Nagano Prefecture.

    Built during the Meiji era (1868-1912), we have a traditional inner garden too. The building is filled with traditional atmosphere.

    Rooms: Matsunoma Room was originally a storage room in the Meiji period. An example of the craftsmanship common at the time can be seen in the designs of the transoms (Ranma) and ceiling panels. Our guest rooms are traditional Japanese-style rooms known as Washitsu. Igusa, soft rush straw, is used for the material of tatami flooring.

    An arrangement of seasonal flowers is displayed in Tokonoma, an alcove in the room. We make sure the rooms are always kept clean. Both transoms and sliding paper doors (Shoji) in the rooms are decorative and show the artistry of the time.

    Yudanaka Onsen Seifuso have four Onsen baths that are brimmed with hot spring water: One of them is Rotenburo, a luxurious outdoor bath which is made of stones from Shiga Kogen. Another one is an indoor bath with a retro theme, built in the early Showa period. Two of the baths can be made available for exclusive use. In our popular Heian bath, we put fresh apples until around May 5, or rose petals depending on the season.

      Perfect stay at Yudanaka Onsen Seifuso

      2 peoples from U.S.A, April 2019

      Yudanaka Onsen Seifuso was perfect for our stay. We loved having a spacious bedroom and living room. The owner's son even drove us up to see the snow monkeys! Would stay again!

      I know it's an onsen, but I wish there were also western showers for guests who didn't want to use the public bath.

      Traditional ryokan stay at Yudanaka Onsen Seifuso

      2 Peoples from Norway, April 2018

      We visited Yudanaka seifuso to visit the snow monkeys and decided to stay at a tratidional ryokan (which we have tried a few times before). One of the staff drove us to the monkey park the next day which we found very hospitable. The ryokan has three onsens (one outside) and the staff also helped us buy an pass for other onsens in the area.

      The was no hot water in our room, the staff unfortunately failed to fix this during our stay (it wasn't a major issue, just somewhat annoying)

      Yudanaka Onsen Seifuso

      From Singapore, Jan. 2016

      It's very good location to get around. Great father and son service, can't find any faults at all with the hotel other than a very comfortable stay. Our first room was smaller and we had to walk out to the toilet but the owners were kind enough to give us an upgrade to a bigger room within room toilet on the 2nd day. Just a few mins walk from Yudanaka station so it's very good location to get around.
