Our ryokan was excellent, the staff were very helpful.
The onsen was great too, and the local town public onsen were worth visiting also.
I would recommend Zao onsen to anyone who would like to experience a more traditional Japanese mountain experience and who like a more peaceful town than the busier places like Hakuba. I will go back in the future.
As always your service was great too.
All the best,
