    The ryokan is set in a beautiful location atop a hill overlooking Jigokudani (Hell Valley). Unfortunately, the room our group of three were in was small and swelteringly hot. The constant under floor heating and lack of air-conditioners meant that you have to open the window to cool down, which lets in eye-watering gusts of volcanic gasses. The numerous warning signs regarding the dangerous gasses on the walk to the Ryokan make this a rather concerning experience. On the plus side, the volcanic onsen offered spectacular sunset views of the mountains on the other side of the valley while you soak, and the food was quite good. Also, the ryokan accepts credit card payments. Overall, we found it to be too expensive for what you get.
  • A great place to stay at in Murodo

    The Ryokan is located about a half an hour walk from the bus station, however, the scenery on the way is beautiful. The Ryokan staff was very welcoming and helpful with everything. In the evening fire was lit in the communal room and it felt very cosy. Food was fantastic and I loved the onsen. The room was good and luckily I had it all to myself. I highly recommend staying there while in Murodo, it was one of the highlights of my trip to Japan.

    We loved every bit of our stay here. The staff and owner of the place were all so warm and friendly and helped us with everything we needed. When it snowed, they even let us use their extra rubber boots! Food was fantastic! The lodge is quite a walk away from the main bus terminal..but that was no problem at all! The scenery to the lodge was amazing..and because of its location,it was peaceful and quiet ..away from all the noise and crowd at the bus terminal. Would definitely stay here again!

    I arrived around dusk after a surprisingly strenuous 30-minute walk from the bus terminal (although I must admit that an oversight in my preparation left me ill-equipped to be walking through snow!). Due to a mist that evening I was completely unaware of the beautiful scenery I was walking through, and got a stunning surprise the next morning looking out my 3rd floor window. However, be aware that from the lower floors you might see nothing but a wall of snow 10 feet away. My overnight stop-over ended the next morning so I sampled very little of the atmosphere, but there was obviously plenty of it. It is a warm and friendly kind of place very much in the 'ski lodge' mold, and the staff are exceedingly helpful. Meals were self-served in a communal dining room that felt like being on a school camp again. This far from the bus terminal, eating-in is really your only option, but it's a great option - the food was abundant and delicious! Traveling alone and with virtually no knowledge of Japanese customs or language, those around me kindly gestured some helpful pointers to get me through the mealtime etiquette. Despite being an obvious foreigner and 'out of place', I felt welcome here. My stay was during the tail-end of ski season so the common areas were reasonably active and boisterous. I preferred the solitude of my room and was able to find sufficient peace and quiet there. The Japanese-Style room was neat and tidy and of adequate size for a single and probably a couple, but I think any more than that would get a bit cramped. The traditional tatami mats lay on top of some kind of heating element emanating an inviting warmth throughout the room (and very handy for drying my socks!). The location is stunning - a feature all accommodation in this area can legitimately claim - but this one especially so. For me (carrying just an overnight backpack) this Ryokan was certainly worth the effort of that testing 30-minute walk, but someone carting a pile of suitcases with them might have a different opinion on that. But I can only speak for me, and I loved it. I would definitely stay here again.

    Dinner, onsen and room are all great. We had a very nice rest between 2 days mountain hiking. The location is around 20 minutes walk from the station, it is very quite.
