We got this from the JR tour available at major train stations. The room we got was huge, with another room just for the lounge. I'm used to ryokans already so I won't describe the traditional aspects of this ryokan, but trust me. This is a real ryokan, and not a hotel with tatami rooms. This is for stressed people...

We arrived at the Otowaya Ryokan in heavy snow. The staff were amazing and helpful even with limited English and our limited Japanese. The rooms were clean, comfortable and warm. Traditional Japanese with Tatami Mats, and futons. The onsens/bathrooms were very clean and very welcome after a long day snowboarding. The breakfasts were great and again the service was excellent....

“the ryokan's onsen baths are marvelous, so if you pick a room without a private bathroom, all the better as you'll be saving money AND getting to experience an onsen! onsens are separated by gender and have special customs so make sure you read up on them before trying them out. rooms here have comfortable futon mattresses( traditional floor mattresses), more comfortable than some hotel beds i have been on. plenty comfortable and the staff will arrange everything for you, discretely. dinner and breakfast must be booked at certain time, day before it is served.”
