Takasagoya Ryokan

Zaō Onsen

Located in Zaō Onsen, a 2-minute walk from Zao Hotsprings Ski Resort, Takasagoya Ryokan provides accommodations with ski-to-door access and free private parking. We chose this ryokan specifically because we heard the food is amazing—and we were not disappointed. The dinner and the breakfast were absolutely fantastic. The rooms were spotless and warm, the bathrooms clean, the futon comfortable, the coffee tasty and the onsen fantastically warm and refreshing.

Takamiya Ryokan Sou

Zaō Onsen

Renovated in 2017, Meitoya Sou offers a modern-style ryokan with natural hot spring baths. Free WiFi is offered and free private parking is available on site. I had a fantastic stay. The food at both dinner and breakfast was amazing, the hotel is walking distance from the ski slopes but also runs shuttle buses morning and afternoon. The hotel onsen was an added bonus, especially after skiing.

Zao Shiki no Hotel

Zaō Onsen

Winter closure of the open-air baths "Shirakaba-no-yu" (Late December - 28 February) Due to the accumulation of snow, the open-air bath will be closed during the winter. All staff members were friendly and tried to make my stay comfortable. Hotel is located 5 minutes walk to the ropeway station. The onsens were clean and comfortable. I really liked the outdoor onsen located outside of main hotel facility across the parking area.
