Check-in time is usually from 15:00 (3:00pm) to 18:00 (6:00pm). If you are having dinner please make sure to check in before 17:00 (5:00pm).

Can I have a non-smoking room?

There are very few non-smoking rooms in Japan. However the ryokan staff would refresh the air of the room and use deodorant if needed.

I have tattoos. Can I use the hot spring baths?

If you have a small tattoo we recommend that you try to cover it up to use the hot spring. Very few public baths or onsens (hot springs) will allow visible tattoos. One option is to stay at a ryokan that has a private or family bath which can be reserved for private use.
Yudanaka Onsen Seifuso has no restrictions on tattoos.

I have a food allergy. Can I still have meals?

Meals requests, and views on food, are not expressed in the same way all over the world. Each ryokan will have different rules about special requests. Please tell us as soon as possible if there are any food you cannot eat or if you have any allergies. We will try our best to find a ryokan that can prepare meals for you.
