눉First , Matsuya is nowhere near Nagano JR. Station . With lots of suitcases , numerable traffic lights and strong winds it is a painful journey by foot . So you MUST catch the Highland buses ( four of them ) at Busstop 1 which plies the Zenkoji route . Busstop 1 is on the Left hand side when you exit the Zenkoji exit . Secondly, The Zenkoji temple area is a " touristy " area as devotees flock here to worship and receive their blessings . Hence Matsuya charges a hefty price , but is poor on delivery . Compared to the two dozens we were so fortunate to live in Japanese rural area, this is one of the worse. There is No Onsen so those of us expecting it should be warned . No Wifi available in the room but downstairs next to their reception are which is noisy and full of people . It is their own private living room .
눇The dinner is good , and their staff Kobayashi San redeemed all their failings !! Since there was no onsen , the owner made special arrangements to accommodate us with an onsen experience we were very appreciative that he instructed his staff Miss Kobahashi to drive us to a public bath at no charge The owner says that he had informed Booking .com that there is no onsen available but it was not communicated to customers .
