This hotel is not in the center of town but there is a shuttle and its worth the time...no need to leave the hotel anyway. We were greeted by a full staff and check in was a breeze....even though little English is spoken. I think the clientele is mainly Japanese.
The room was Japanese style with mats and futons....very large by Japanese standards.
Fully stocked gift shop with anything you might need for eating or drinking as well.
We ate at the restaurant one night and the meal was good and service excellent...choice of low tables with mats or regular seating.
But the jewel was the onsen. Spacious, not crowded and with indoor and outdoor baths...I went several times during our short stay as did my son. We became onsen junkies by the time our trip was over !
Matsumoto itself is a clean, walkable town with plenty of small shops and restaurants to visit when you are arriving or departing and waiting for your train.More
