Room was nice and comfortable. Good ryokan-style dinner, food was beautifully arranged and served. It was delicious! Breakfast was okay though.. They also have private open air onsen, but you have to pay for a fee.

Location: ideal. near town centre and bus station.
Meals: excellent.
Hospitality: first class. Service impeccable.

We stayed 2 nights after our Tateyama-Kurobe Alpine visit ; on our way back to Tokyo.
It was worth the detour.
Although we had difficulty locating the hotel,( it did not have a huge signboard), it was a nice walk from the bus station.
Reception was warm and efficient.
Shoes had to be taken off and kept by the hotel staff at a side-room of the reception.
We don slippers inside the ryokan.
After choosing our yukata which we were supposed to wear while walking the town at night, we were led to our room past a beautiful indoor garden. The garedn was so impressive ; looking at the hotel from outside one would not expect the owner to incorporate a garden inside.
Our room was comfortable. I am always amazed at how the Japanese can accommodate every amenity inside their hotel rooms.
The tatami beds were laid out while we had our dinner downstairs. We chose the first time slot for an amazing meal.
The food was absolutely delightful_ served course after course, fine dining style.
The varieties surprise us immensely.
So was the breakfast the next morning.
I would recommend booking room and meals for a heavenly gourmet experience.
We also enjoyed the onsen at the basement_ indoor and outdoor available.
I always loved the outdoor. Not so claustrophobic.
The town Kusatsu was lovely with its central yubatake and the yumomi show.

Overall a most relaxing time here.
We enjoyed our stay here very much.

We stayed overnight at Kanemidori ryokan in Kusatsu. On arrival at the bus terminal, we called the ryokan and were promptly picked up in a luxury minibus. We chose to have dinner in a private dining room at the ryokan's restaurant which was around $75 /head which was expensive but worth every penny. Breakfast was nice but a bit too traditional for our western palates.
Overall, the room was clean and lovely, onsens (both indoor and outdoor) were clean and beautifully fitted out and service excellent. Not much English spoken but enough to get by. The ryokan's location was convenient to the main centre.

Room Tip: get changed into Japanese Yukata clothing (provided by ryokan) as it's easy and comfy to wear.

The ryokan was only a few minutes’ walk to the Yubata, but it could take you ages to get to it if you drive because the Yubata main street area was a maze of very narrow streets, most of them one-way but were not clearly marked as such.
Compared to the other onsen ryokans we had visited before, I would rate this ryokan as average ie nothing memorable nor unpleasant either. One thing that caught our attention was that this ryokan must be very keen on energy savings, because they had a notice inside the room (in Japanese) which said air-conditioning would be turned off between 10 p.m. and 7 a.m. the next morning. The notice said that Kusatsu was very cool in the morning and at night time so there shouldn’t be a big problem for guests. We were there in early August, we opened the windows at night and it was cool enough for us.
The public onsen bath was ok, but the massage chairs in the lounge room was not complimentary (as in Hotel Boun where we stayed the night before).
We did have a funny incident during our stay. While we were having our in-room kaiseiki dinner, the candle light which warmed the food went out and I called the front desk to have it replaced. As expected, they couldn’t understand a word I said and I was forced to mumble “fire” in Japanese - knowing that it was an incorrect term but the only word I knew that was remotely relevant to the circumstances. Of course the staff was scared out of his wits and rushed to our room immediately thinking our room had caught fire. He laughed heartily when he found out what happened. I believe only 1 or 2 front staff spoke some English, the rest none at all.
