We loved this place!! It was a bit retro, soooo comfortable, the staff were really really lovely and professional - it was obvious our comfort came first. The food was AMAZING; 9 course banquet breakfast and dinner. We asked for all vegetarian - not normal for Japan, but beautifully done. They even came looking for us through the streets cause we hadn't turned up for dinner! It's a very short and lovely walk to the Hot spring at the centre of Kusatsu, and close to nature walks - a very quaint town and worth visiting - it's where the Japanese go for their holidays! We had an authentic experience and felt like we were truly on holidays and in old Japan, the room was lovely with our own private Japanese garden, the futons were incredibly comfortable, as were the amenities of the room. We were so well taken care of that we will go back to Kusatsu just to stay at Tenojiya. Lastly they have their own natural spring in the Ryokan which is absolutely beautiful and I believe is the only one in town that does.. we went down late at night and had it all to ourselves!! There are stairs but we didn't mind and it is an older Ryokan but we felt that made it full of character and gave it oodles of charm. We hope you enjoy staying there as much as we did.
