thank you for helping me. I was disappointed that the matsutake mushroom was over. The staff in charge of dinner was really happy to find a facility that seems to have a matsutake mushroom. I was able to get it safely. We can spend leisurely and are satisfied. I was glad that there were a few more hair care amenities. I think I want to go again.

We visited in the first night of a trip for 2 days and 3 days. From the first person in charge of parking, I was expected to have a very polite customer service. The person who guides you to the room is a young woman with a personality. I was informed and felt that it was a good hotel. However, some employees were polite, but there was a feeling that they were done, and I was disappointed. In particular, the women at the front were misunderstood with the landlady because the quality of the surroundings and the customer service were quite different and their clothes were different (the landlady, sorry). However, the landlady was a strange-aged woman who was the first to guide me and thought that she was a great person. This is an inn where young presidents are working hard, and they are comfortable and overall the hospitality is great. The food was great and it was a tasty dish, although it was a commercial vessel. The taste was also good for Osaka people. I was happy because it was the center of the earth. The breakfast is a little bit of the impression that it is tailored to the customer's age group, but the stomach is good. The amount of complexity is quite different from dinner. The quality of the hot springs was excellent, and we were very satisfied with the long-time love of hot springs. Since I wanted to tell local information to the inn on my trip, it was very helpful to ask the room staff for local information full of local love. This is especially true because there are many Nakai-san who cannot answer even if they hear it at recent inns. To me, Nagano Prefecture has been a demon gate, and there were many inns that didn't fit, but Kashiwaya was the second inn in Nagano. I want to go to the beautiful Bessho hot spring, next time to Maeyama-ji Temple and Nunkan.
