Hotel Shoho is a "Western Style" Hotel with a "Japanese Feeling" (there are many of these types of hotels in Japan). Located in the Utsukushigahara hot-spring area of Matsumoto, Hotel Shoho offers Japanese and Western accommodation with mountain views. You can choose to stay in rooms with tatami (woven-straw) floors and Japanese futon bedding or in rooms with Western-style beds. Guests can relax in the indoor/outdoor hot-spring baths and request massages for an extra cost. The rooms contain all the typical necessities, flat-screen TV, fridge, safety deposit box, Japanese Yukata robes, toothbrush sets, and the en suite bathroom comes with a hairdryer. For an extra cost, guests can use the private reservable hot-spring baths and sing at the karaoke rooms. Bicycles can be rented to travel around the area, while sauna rooms are on-site as well. A free shuttle is available from JR Matsumoto Train Station, which is a 20-minute drive away and runs on a fixed schedule.
