We have just spent two nights at Matsuya Ryokan in Nagano. The location was amazing, just next to the Zenko-ji Temple. The rooms were nice sizes & we were made to feel so very welcome there. No request was too much of a problem for them when we asked for help with tour & taxi reservations. Everywhere was very clean & the food was beautifully prepared & delicious. We had the typical Japanese breakfast each day & also chose to eat dinner there one evening. We very much appreciated them preparing our Japanese beds too each evening & putting them away in the mornings. Highly recommended if you are staying in Nagano.

We enjoyed our short stay at this ryokan, located in the heart of the street leading to Zenkoji temple. All the staff we encountered were very friendly and respectful. the ryokan consists of simple tatami mat rooms where they bring out your futon mattresses in the evening. Our room had a shower and toilet area, but some other rooms share facilities. The onsen (public guest bath) was the size of a small hot tub. Simple comfort, but the futons were a bit thin if you’re not used to it.

Although a bit tired at the seams, this Ryokan offers a traditional stay from decades past. Futons are on floor with no additional padding. Room included toilet and sink. Ryokan is a mix of stairs and hallways. Public bath onsen available. Best to wear slip off shoes. Shoes must be removed before entering lobby. Breakfast included tiny pickled mushrooms, miso soup, smoked salmon piece, salad with egg and tomato, rice and other seasonal tidbits. The Ryokan is about 15-20 min taxi ride from train station (about $12), located on Temple grounds and in older neighborhood. Most shops close 4-5 pm here. Sunrise Budhist monk ceremony very interesting, lasts about 30 minutes. You can attend this and return to Ryokan for a traditional Japanese breakfast.

Great location just steps from the temple! Authentic Ryokan. Staff friendly, accommodation clean. Dinner and breakfast were both good. There is an incredible hot apple turnover shop just out and to left of stay and coffee across from that. We rose early and ate apple turnover as we walked up street to watch the morning ceremony at temple. Just fantastic! Highly recommend this!

The Ryokan is located very close to the Zenkoji temple & along a shopping street with shops, cafe, restaurants, & even a free zoo (the kids enjoyed their time there, as they had a great time interacting with the squirrels!). The staff were friendly & the rooms comfortabel (our only complaint is that it was freezing in the bathroom.)! The food was elaborate & delicious! Highly recommended!
