Staff are very friendly, we felt like VIP guests, they bent over backwards to accommodate us. Food was amazing, very authentic Japanese cuisine. Rooms were spacious and very clean, we would definitely come back here and recommend this hotel to anyone! 5 stars!

Lucky we are not. Back at Kura we sat in the lounge room and chatted with the others, a couple of guys were being interviewed by a writer who does articles about some of the tourists who stay here. We sat and listened til our fluffy warm beds ...
... about one and a half hours and we were in Nagano. Our accommodation is just a few train stops past Nagano in Suzaka so we found the train for this line and headed on up on the snow monkey express train. Our guesthouse is soo cute, Guesthouse Kura, www.ghkura.com It is an old historic building and is in the traditional style with rice paper walls between rooms and tatami matting on the floor. Our beds are futon mattresses with thick luxurious bedding, electric blankets and ...
