My wife and I recently spent three days at the Oshi Ryokan outside of Nagano in Japan's mountain region. I can't say enough about the quality of the experience and the treatment we received as guests. Hiderori Oshi was the perfect host. Not only did we have a great room which converted daily between sitting room and sleeping room, the... More

I had read reviews saying this place was traditional and a real experience of Japanese's life. We had stayed in other Ryokans before this one; and the manager here was extremely kind and welcoming ; but I personally found the ryokan quite "basic" for the price being paid. The rooms are very basic and the toilets could do with being... More

Traditional tatami room with views over the countryside. The ryokan is thatched and a beautiful example of a traditional building of the area. The owners are welcoming, and it's well worth booking dinner to sample local food at the ryokan whilst you stay. The owner is a Shinto priest and is happy to talk about his religion.

Oshi Ryokan is located high up in the mountains in the town of Togakushi, famed for its soba, shrines and legend of ninja. We went, however, in the winter where many attractions were closed and the main thing to do, apparently, is ski. We weren't skiers however, so we spent much of our time visiting shrines, trying our luck with... More

This was the first time we've ever stayed in a ryokan, but we trusted the good reviews and went for it. It was not disappointing. The owners Mr Oshi (a Shinto priest!) and Mrs Oshi are very welcoming, and are willing to suggest places to go in Togakushi. The breakfast was amazing, so we also tried dinner - it's a... More

This summer my wife and I spent 3 nights at Oshi Ryokan, in the mountains near Nagano. Mr Oshi and his wife are the best hosts you can wish for!
