Stay away. Don't waste your money
Very disappointing stay. Almost wanted to walk straight out of the ryokan as soon as we checked in. 1. Everything costs additional money - bath towel, face towel, tooth brush and tooth paste. 2. The shared bathroom shuts at 9pm. After 9pm you can only use the public onsen outside the ryokan. Additionally, the water pressure in the bathroom was very weak and the temperature was low. I could hardly have a proper shower during the stay. 3. No hot water in the areas where you brush your teeth and wash your face. 4. No Wifi. 5. Futon provided in the bedrooms were very uncomfortable. 6. Very thin walls so you could hear your next-door neighbour snoring at night. 7. Very bad value for money considering all of the above, and you can easily find better accommodation elsewhere in Nozawa Onsen. 8. Cash only. Do not accept credit cards. 9. Curfew at 11pm. I have stayed in plenty of traditional Japanese ryokan before, and this is truly disappointing. Please look elsewhere and not let this horrible ryokan ruin your Nozawa Onsen experience.
