I came with family to Nagano because I had some friends in the area and they recommended Saihokukan for my Mother and Sister more than for me, though I was just as impressed. It was the first time to Japa for my Mother and only the second for my Sister, and both are incapable of coping with the Japanese style toilets, public bathing, hot springs, raw fish, and lots of the great things that make Japan Japan. At Saihokukan though there was a choice of three restaurants Japanese, Chinese, and Western, and when they needed a break from fish and noodles and what not we went in for a sandwhich at the Western restaurant Seiji, and it was a big relief for both of them.

As for the rooms, there is a big difference in the southern wing (a newer building annexed in the more recent history) and the main building which has a history of over 120 years! I spent time chatting with some of the staff and after we checked in they offered to upgrade our rooms for free because there were openings and we lived like kings! The southern building was more salary man style, normal rooms with bath and shower and the goods, but the main building was spacious, "classic," and very relaxing.

One of the best things all around though was most definitely the food. For breakfast we had a choice of Western or Japanese style, and we all took Western the first morning, and the yogurt was uncannily delicious. I don't know how they did it, but we all looked forward to the yogurt every morning. Bacon, toast, eggs, sausage, juices, home roasted coffee, etc.

The restaurants all boasted their policy of using zero chemicals and flavorings in all of their food, something I'm always relieved to hear, and something my family was most pleased to hear. MSG tends to give my mother migraines, and we had our first overseas journey with no migraines! (expect for one in Tokyo, probably alcohol related ^_^). The hand made consome soup was amazing, and the Chinese restaurant was clearly very popular, and I would agree with the crowd, very tastey!

We walked to Zenkouji temple, walked all around the city, and friends drove us around to nearby cities for more sight-seeing and shopping. Lot's of great restaurants and shopping on the main road just a couple minutes East of the hotel by foot.

I can see how some might not like the nicks and crannies of age the building certainly shows, but the atmosphere was well paid for.All in all the friendliness of the staff, both young and old, is what did it for me. They upgraded our rooms free of charge to help try and give my family a better experience, and yes we did!

Room Tip: If you've got a little more money to spare, get one of the "deluxe" rooms in the main building for a great stay!

This hotel is showing its age, but for one night at 9500 yen we thought we would give it a try.

Our western style room needed a major renovation. The carpets were torn and worn, the walls were stained with exhaust from the ventilation system, the bathtub was crumbling, the heat was stifling and there was no way to adjust the temperature (we resorted to opening the windows.) There is internet in the room.

We ate at the french restaurant at the hotel. The food was of medium quality, although the hotel boasted of its local and organic flair. We had overpriced Cava at the champagne bar.
