About
Description
ZEN Hostel offers a comfortable but affordable place to stay. In the mountains of Nagano, a Japanese hotel built in 1891 was remodeled to where modern meets traditional. With our in-house pond and garden it is a More very relaxing place. Events such as making paper crafts with a local artist and hanging out in our cafe and bar gives guests a chance to connect with locals. Less
