The Suminoyu’s rooms are spacious and luxurious and finished in a traditional Japanese style, and the service and hospitality of the hotel is excellent. Well worth a visit are the baths on the top floor of the hotel, from where the stunning view of the surrounding mountains and the old streets of Shibu Onsen will awe you. Definitely try to make it up here at sunset.
FOOD AND DRINK
The Suminoyu offers similar fare to mant of the other traditional japanese Ryokans across the country, wtih traditional japanese dishes making up the core of their culinary offering, with each delicate dish shifting and changing as the seasons and fresh produce change.
Located a short drive from the Snow Monkey Park, the Suminoyu is ideally placed to explore the park and admire the snow monkeys in the hot springs. The hotel can be reached in just 10 minutes from Yudanaka Station in a private hotel vehicle.
