I went here in early july, the weather is 13-17 celcius under the sun and 6-9 celcius when dark. This ryokan need to walk in the east direction from Murodo station for 15 min through snow. The room is large enough for 4-6 person and the hotel are made from wood, so you can hear the sound of conversation from the next room. Futon bed was equipped enough for 6-7 persons per room, they are clean and warm as well. Food is japanese style, not much but can make you full. Taste is normal, dinner time is 18:00-19:30 and breakfast is 6:00-7:30. Communal Bath onsen well is only 4x6 meter and open 14:00-21:00, when I went there it's only me taking alone. Not much activity to do in Alpen route but I love hiking in the snow mountain very much. After 9PM it's nothing to do but sleep, the star will rose in clearly night and I can't see them on my day. Vending machine provided lot of beverages so you don't need to bring any drinks along.
