Great atmosphere in this 140 year old ryokan which has been owned and managed by the same family. Some great history there! Mieko is a super-helpful and generous host who speaks excellent english to help out us Gaijin who don't know any more but the most basic of Japanese. Fantastic buffet breakfast to fuel up for a day on the...

We stayed here for seven nights, and it was great. The hotel is cozy, but not small. There's a communal recreation area with a wood fire burning, and the onsen has an indoor and outdoor bath of differing temperatures. During the seven day stay, the onsen saw me nude no less than 14 times. There's nothing better to warm you...

We were a group of friends traveling through Japan to ski and this was by far my favorite out of the places we stayed. Staff were very helpful and helped us with any questions we might have as well as offer to pick us up and drive us to the train station. Breakfast buffet was also nice. Would stay here...

We have just stayed 4 nights. Firstly Mieko and staff are so accommodating, especially Mitch who had great tips. I actually left my phone there and someone drove it down to our bus stop arriving in time...so thoughtful!! The rooms are a little well worn but comfy and traditional. The showers and onsen area is spacious and lovely. Great to...

Mieko, the host was wonderful. We had a tatami room that worked well for the three of us. The onsite onsen was awesome to use after a long day on the slopes. Kougakuro is close to a number of tasty restaurants so dinner was easy. Breakfast at Kougakuro is a mix of Japanese and Western food, both tasty and filling....

We stopped for a week at Kogakuro Ryokan in Myoko Kogen early Jan 2017. We had the most beautiful stay. Our host Mieko was so very helpful - no request too large. We made good use of the lounge and bar area ( every evening) and thoroughly enjoyed chatting to Mitch, he was very helpful with tips for places to...

This hotel is fantastic! We stayed here for over a week and couldn't fault a thing. Mieko and her staff are so welcoming, friendly and willing to help with anything and everything. The rooms are comfortable and clean, and the onsen is wonderful especially after a day skiing (it appears that most of the rooms only have a toilet and...

This is actually the third time I've stayed at Kogakuro which indicates how much I enjoy being here for my annual dose of snow. Mieko and her team are so kind and welcoming and really make the place a home away from home. The location is brilliant as it is right by the village and all the izakayas and restaurants...
