This was my second stay at Koishiya. The staff are all helpful, friendly, resourceful, and hard-working. I was told they were all given a month off prior to the heavy tourist season which made me love them even more. The town is charming and the ryokan is too! The food is also

Hi, It would take 25 min by car from KOISHIYA RYOKAN to RYUOO SKI PARK. Or you can take free shuttle from Yudanaka station to RYUOO(30 min). Thank you very much.

Hi Dominique, Thank you very much for your inquiry. The private room is NOT ensuite. The bath rooms and toilets are shared with other guests. You have access a traditional hot spring bath. Thank you very much.

How far is it to the ski slopes and what is the transportation? Thank you
It takes 30-60 min(depends on the slopes) by bus from nearest bus stop to Shiga kogen Ski resorts where is one of most famous ski resorts in Japan.

Yes, we have email address but it is not permitted email address in this comment box. We have facebook page as well. You can send the message from there. We would provide pick up service to Yudanaka station between 2 pm and 5:30 pm. KOISHIYA RYOKAN

"Choose between a backpackers and a ryokan"
"We took the private room. Toilet for women is on the 2nd floor and for men is on the 3rd., so take into considuration."
"We had the first floor tatami room facing the street which had a wonderful view plus the extra space of a built in balcony."
"Keep your windows closed... we were told that monkeys can sometimes enter the rooms during the day!"
"The rooms at the front of the hotel gave you better views of the surrounding countryside than the rooms at the back of the hotel."
US$80 - US$160 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
