Traditional room, close to station

Stayed for only one night but was a great experience of traditional room. The hosts were lovely, and we're very accommodating, giving us a lift from the station and to and from the snow monkey park. The hosts even leant us some gum boots for the trek to the snow monkey's. Shimaya very close to the yudanaka station, about an 5-10min walk. Convenience store and restaurants close by. Would definitely stay here again.
