KURA Guesthouse Reviews from the Web

Very friendly staff


Liked: The staff were amazingly friendly. I felt like I was in a home rather than a hostel. The hostel is a renovated building with lots of history. It has a great caf out the front and tatami flooring. The rooms were spacious and felt very nice. It is now my favorite hostel in Japan. Didn't like: Nothing. I loved every minute. I wanted to stay there for more days.



Welcome to Guest House KURA in Suzaka City, Nagano!!

An authentic traditional Japanese Guest House!

This house was built more than 100 years ago and was only renovated in 2012 in a way that retained the building's Japanese quaint atmosphere.

All rooms come in Tatami style and feature traditional Futon beds.

When staying at one of our comfortable and cozy rooms, one is brought in touch with traditional Japanese lifestyle.

The guest house's interior elements, such as shelves, stairs, sliding doors, and decor, are kept in their original state so as to retain the unique atmosphere of the Edo and Meiji period.

Guest House KURA is the only budget hostel that will bring you back in time to experience the ancient Japan!

Here is an ideal place for those looking to lodge at a hostel full of traditional Japanese charm!!!

Easy access to Nagano City, Zenkoji temple, Snow Monkey park, and downtown Obuse.

Here, you can enjoy the four seasons:
Cherry blossom in Suzaka during spring, barbecue or camping in the yard during summer,water fall amidst autumn leaves, and Snow Monkey park and skiing or snowboarding during winter.
