My room had beautiful views of the valley on two sides, and was very comfortable. The food available was exquisite! The Hosts were helpful, and even brought me to see some local sites. I recommend Nozawa Onsen Kiriya Ryokan 5 stars!

We stayed here three nights mid March. Stayed in family room but was two of us. The hosts could not have been more helpful or attentive. Nothing was too much trouble The rooms were clean and authentic. The beds were the most comfortable we had in Japan and we stayed in some fancy city hotels. The doonas were superb and... More

This was our 4th visit to Nozawa but our 1st to Kiriya. Wished we had found this beautiful place for our previous stays as it is fabulous. Our room was spacious and beautiful and the futons very comfortable. We had a toilet and vanity but no ensuite bathroom which was not a problem with the lovely onsen for bathing. Staff... More

This is our 2nd time staying at Kiriya Ryokan (the last time 2 years ago which was also our last outing to Nozawa) and it certainly has not lost its charm. We took a traditional room for our family of 4, and it had its own ensuite. The room was large, and very comfortable. It was well heated for us... More

We spend 1 night in Kiriya Ryokan. The Staff was so helpful, as during day time we went hiking, and in need of washing machine to clear our muddy clothes. The staff actually allow us to use their 'staff hostel' washing machine. The dinner and breakfast served is also of excellent quality.

We had 5 families and 7 kids on a ski trip. The Ryokan is a nice walk to the Yu Road and it passes by the Omaga Onsen. Nappa Cafe is literally a staircase walk away. Ko and her team were fabulous and had to put up with our noisy kids. very comfortable English speaking environment.

This is a lovely old ryokan oozing charm and character. We loved our room overlooking the pond and across to the mountains. Ko the owner is so incredibly helpful and her english is great which really helped with organizing transfers, reservations etc My only disappointment is that there was not an outdoor Onsen, just inside. This ryokan is really good... More

We have just spent two weeks at Kyria, with family and friends to ski and celebrate my 60th birthday. We've been to Japan 4 times and this place wins hands down.

Kiriya Ryokan is a wonderful place to stay in Nozawa Onsen. Ko and her family (who run the ryokan) were very friendly, helpful and accommodating, with everything from selling us discounted ski lift tickets to recommending restaurants to letting us use their washing machines. The rooms (we had a western double & Japanese triple) were large and beautifully presented and... More
