Rie is extremely kind, warm and so helpful with planning my trips to Mt Norikura and Kamikochi! She speaks great English, is very knowledgeable about the area and even drove me to the visitor center when I missed the bus.

Our group of six travelers from Yokosuka had a great overnight during our weekend visit to Nagano and Kamikōchi. We would highly recommend Rie and The Ten Gallon Hat to groups of travelers who are looking for a warm and inviting place to stay after a long adventure.
