Yuimakura is the most excellent onsen ryukan we have ever visited. It provides top-tier traditional onsen ryukan service: from warm welcoming tea and delicate hand-made okashi to the sincere 90-degree farewell bow by the ogami-san and nakai-san. The fusion-style cuisine is so amazing that as you can have in a starred-restaurant. The room is in maisonette type with a clean and private natural onsen where has gorgeous snow scenes in winter. The staff speaks English and serves with passion and dedication. A 10 minutes driving-time to Echigo-Yuzawa Shin-Kansen Station with nice pick-up service means no worries in transpoation and position. All in all Yuimakura is worth visiting and we will definitely visit there again.
