Hotel Tsubakino is a modern ryokan (traditional hotel) located in Yudanaka Onsen, a small town famous for hot springs and surrounded by the most beautiful mountains of Nagano.Hotel Tsubakino offers both modern convenience and traditional Japanese atmosphere. Enjoy a spectacular view of the northern Japanese Alps while soaking in our outdoor hot tubs and a great selection of Japanese food at our restaurant. In the August of 2006, we opened private outdoor baths.Jigokudani Wild Monkey Park can be the only place on Earth where wild monkeys bathe in hot springs. About 250 monkeys live in this park and they are fed in the wild. You may have seen these monkeys in travel brochures. When they soak in hot springs in winter, they look like us.To get to the park, take a bus to Kanbayashi Onsen (15 minutes) and walk 30 minutes along the Yokoyu River. Don't forget to take pictures of you and the monkeys!For dining, we offer three Shinshu beef dinner plans which feature the best quality beef from cattle raised in the wilderness of Nagano. Shinshu beef is known for its softness and mild taste.Enjoy high speed Internet access anywhere in our hotel using wireless connection.
