Charming historical Ryokan! Lovely meal! Great hospitality!
Exceptional hospitality! Room is big and comfortable. The small onsen in the bathroom. Convenient location to the bus stop.

Amazing hosts, wonderful location, incredible food.
The pillows are traditional buckwheat pillows and quite firm, so this may be tricky for some. I used the cushions from the chairs instead as I've got back problems, but my husband was fine with them.
Oshi and his wife were wonderful hosts! So friendly and helpful. Oshi speaks perfect English so this really helped as well. The food was delicious. Probably the best we've had in our 2.5 weeks in Japan so far. They even catered for some special dietary requirements and made 100% buckwheat soba noodles from scratch since I can't eat wheat (they were delicious!). Highly recommend adding dinner to your plan. The location is beautiful. Stunning scenery and right next to a beautiful shrine. Cannot recommend highly enough!

Japanese style room with nice views over the garden and hills. Just loved my breakfasts and dinners...... very tasty....... wonderfully balanced ........... I could feel it doing me good.

Food was excellent, and the staff were friendly, attentive and gracious. Bear in mind it is a traditional Japanese Minka, so western style creature comforts are not all present. It was the coldest part of winter during our visit, and could get quite cold at night due to the inherent flaws of the traditional building design. Plenty of blankets and heaters were provided.

I wanted to tour nagano, so I was disappointed when I found out its 1 hour away from the city. However, the hotel is near many touristic attractions in Mt. Togakushi, such as ski resorts, museums, temples... In the end, I wish I could have stayed longer.
The staff is really friendly and it looks like they really like to do what they're doing. They made me fell like a king. Also, their food is delicious! If your looking towards having a japanese experience, it's the perfect ryokan!

Amazing old school Ryokan with great service in a quiet, beautiful mountain area.
Dinner was simply amazing: local food served in a private room while getting warm under the kotatsu. The staff was 100% dedicated, they accommodated the service to fit my schedule. The surrounding area is beautiful and very quiet.

Greatj ryokan. Highly recommend the dinner and breakfast set as the food is impeccable and few opportunities to have a traditional Japanese dinner.

Fantastic traditional ryokan stay
Absolutely amazing service. Breakfast and dinner were also great, and in fact, some of the best food we had in all of Japan. The entire place is beautiful in winter and overall, it was such a great first experience staying at a ryokan. We would love to come back next time we're in Japan!

Oshi Ryokan was a lovely place to stay. The location is beautiful and quiet. The owner and his wife are extremely friendly and helpful. I definitely recommend the dinner and breakfast... well worth the money and was a highlight for my stay!

We had a great time staying at Oshi Ryokan. The owners were so friendly and helpful. Dinner was traditional Japanese style and excellent, beyond what we expected. We also loved drinking tea in our room and warming our feet under the table which had a warming lamp under it. Highly recommend Oshi Ryokan.

Magnificent Ryokan in beautiful quiet area serving amazing food!!
After having spent a few days in Tokyo Oshi Ryokan was just what we needed. An amazing, authentic ryokan in the peaceful Japanese Alps. The hosts/owners were extremele friendly and helpful. Rooms are large and quiet and fresh tea and biscuits are waiting for you upon arrival. Please add breakfast and dinner to your reservation. The food is SUBLIME! By far the best best food we had during our 2 week trip in Japan. Multiple small excellent dishes are served in your private dining room. There are three shrines and a magnificent lake near Togakushi which are within walking distance from the Ryokan. A must go!
