Great !!!
Every things in this ryokan quite good , Staff in front are good and quite formal. Onsen are very special they swap lady and men room every morning and evening, who stayed only 1day can enjoy but We have been staying 2 days quite confused ,however is good. Location is great, in my photo you can see the highest tower is this ryokan, only one thing as I would like to comment is food as “grill fish” look like they did earlier before we came even we came before but fish a bit cool , otherwise are good.

Best ryokan in its class
This ryokan was a fabulous experience, the rooms are spacious by Japanese standards, the tatami covers even the elevator floor, and the decor includes Japanese painting and pottery. The food is delicious. Free coffee in the lobby in the evening and morning is a perk, and the Yukata can be worn both around the ryokan and for strolls in the neighborhood. The bath is nice, but does not have a view.

traditional ans close to yubatake
my gf invited me here for my birthday. this ryokan is located right next to yubatake(where the hot spring come out and flow down, i dont know how to explain but its central of kusatsu). the ryokan is old style, historic and traditional. onsen was pretty good. staffs are very nice and polite. if you wanna go snowboarding, the ski resort is 5min drive. i usually visit here for spa and snowboard. i guess this ryokan is kinda expensive but worth it!

First time in Kusatsu.
Naraya is obviously very well known ryokan that can give you the traditional Japanese experience in the one of the premier onsen towns in Japan, Kusatsu. There isnt much else that you can do from Onsen so you really need one day at the destination but the ryokan onsen was satisfying and everything was so clean.

Charming ryokan in Town
This Japanese hotel is located in the heart of this hot spring town. It's location is perfect for Tara who ride to strolling along the city meter in the daytime or in the nighttime. Services are authentic Japanese Style and full of hospitality. The room is nice and quite spacious. It's on-sen is wonderful. We had dinner and breakfast in our private room in the restaurant, which I really delicious and well- presented. Free parking is offered but not easy to access. However, you donate a car in this charming town.
