Shosenkaku Kagetsu was simply brilliant. Living and working in Tokyo, you learn to take any chance you can to relax and recharge. The hotel is about a 5 minutes walk from Echigo-yuzawa station and you're made to feel completely welcome the moment you walk through the main entrance. We reserved the Sara suite by contacting Tomii-san (the hotel's excellent GM)... More

This is the second time to stay in ryokan. The room is big, clean and fully with equipped with what you need. The room has 1 point that I don't like which is smoking smell in the room. The public bath has both indoor & outdoor bathing. The dinning for both dinner and breakfast are very traditional. I would recommend... More

Booking was easy through Agoda for the standard rooms, but if you want to upgrade to a suite, you have to check the ryokan's website and email its GM, Tomoko, who speaks good English and is very friendly and accommodating. We booked the SARA suite and it was perfect--from the welcome, to our room with lovely cozy Japanese traditional beds,... More

Ask me what is good about Shosenkaku Kagetsu... Everything! We arrived in a town covered with 4 meters of snow. It was beautiful. Tomoko welcomed us even before we left Malaysia and with each email, we couldn't wait to get there sooner. We wanted to experience the whole Japanese culture and we couldn't have asked for more. The ryokan was... More

Arrived off peak season to catch some early snow. Happy to be picked up at the station and ryokan was better than the pictures shown although our room had a bad smoky smell. They provided free use of snow boots & toys to have fun in the snow. Within walking distance to rope way up Yuzawa Kogen. Plenty of restaurant... More

We stayed in Mar 13 with my family of 4 (including 2 young children). Plenty of snow still in Mar and we were worried there wouldn't be any! Love that it's so close to Tokyo. Location is a great base to explore the ski resorts, with the free shuttle bus stop right in front of the hotel. Also walking distance... More
