If you're looking for a truly authentic experience, you need not look any further than this beautiful ryokan style hotel situated only a three-minute walk from the Zao Onsen Ski Resort and the nearby shuttle buses. Ideally located and beautifully decorated, the onsen offers perfect accommodation for both couples and for larger groups and families. There are a range of Japanese rooms available, each offering spacious and traditional design, as well as a small handful of western and combination rooms for those who prefer a western style bed. Each of the rooms, though, is designed to be reminiscent of a traditional ryokan and features gorgeous traditional décor that creates a soothing and tranquil atmosphere.
This is carried on throughout the whole hotel, including into the in-house restaurant and dining room and the stunning range of indoor and outdoor onsens. While it might not look like much from the outside, inside this hotel offers warm, friendly and beautiful accommodation. The restaurant serves both breakfast and dinner daily for all guests as well as offering a dedicated children's menu to keep the kids happy. There's also a range of facilities available for guests to use in their down time, such as a massage service and a karaoke room. A visit to Wakamatsuya wouldn't be complete without trying out one of the gorgeous onsens, though, and they're definitely worth spending a few hours of your day relaxing to experience. The hotel offers a range of indoor and outdoor onsens as well as private onsen experiences for an extra charge. So, if you're planning a visit to Zao, this traditional ryokan is well worth checking out!

Japanese RoomSpacious, open and beautifully traditional, these Japanese rooms are perfect both for larger groups travelling together and for those who like having a lot of space. Unlike most Japanese rooms, these tatami floored rooms are spacious and can comfortably sleep up to six guests, although are cosy and ambient enough to house two people for a romantic getaway. The room offers tatami sleeping mats as well as a traditional dining space and, of course, gorgeous Japanese décor to make the experience truly authentic.
The room is also equipped with an ensuite bathroom that includes a range of complimentary amenities, although the bathroom is a standard capsule Japanese bathroom with a combined shower/bath. The room is also serviced with a large television with satellite access and basic tea/coffee making facilities such as a bar fridge and kettle. Throughout the day, there is plenty of light and lovely views, too, though large windows, and each room also offers a small and comfortable seating area to soak up the sunshine and take in the view beside the window.
