Iwaya hotel in Kiso-Fukushima combines tradition and comfort. The proprietor belongs to an ancient family of innkeepers who have managed this site. The present building is modern and, from the outside, not especially attractive. But the interior is more traditional and cosy. The Japanese style bedrooms are large and well insulated, with comfortable futon bedding and ensuite showers and toilets.... More

A lovely family run Ryokan in this Old Post route town with the roaring Kiso river out back. Traditional comfort with modern plumbing with hot baths for a great soak. The staff were extremely helpful and welcoming and served an elegant traditional Japanese feast with traditional Japanese grace. The location allowed us to comfortably walk to historic sites, shops and... More

This was a welcome haven after a day of walking. Our room was huge, overlooking the river, with our own toilet and bathroom. Well presented accommodation that felt traditional and very comfortable. We really enjoyed our stay. There is a lovely public indoor and outdoor bath. Dinner was a delicious array of Japanese style food with one of our top... More

This was a solid choice on the Walk Japan Summer Nakasendo Way trek. Our room was good sized, the food (dinner and breakfast) was presented beautifully, and the onsen restored us after a hot day on the trail..

16th generation running the hotel so they really know how to do it. Traditional Ryokan so shoe changing, tatami mats and futon essential. Tradition tempered by full heating and shower etc. Very friendly and helpful staff. Excellent traditional dinner and breakfast. Indoor & outdoor onsen on top floor were clean and well appointed.

This Ryokan has been modernized over the years, so has mod-cons of attached bathrooms and chairs. Rooms are spacious. Had a very fine Japanese meal, in which the oyster vegetables and soba noodles were very good. There is an On-Sen on the 4th floor. One complaint is the rooms were too hot and stuffy, and it was not clear how... More

We stayed in the inn two nights with a Road Scholar Walk Japan tour. Our room was huge (see room photos). Very traditional room with tatami mats, futons, sitting tables. It was great. We enjoyed two dinners and two breakfasts. Both the dinners and breakfasts were Japanese food art at it's finest. The inn has a nice onsen for relaxing... More

We stayed here with our two children for two nights. The rooms are in traditional style and just what you would imagine a traditional japanese Inn to be. The food is excellent and plenty. We bought a half board plan, which we did not regret. The Onsen is great - there are two separate onsen for men and women. The... More

We stayed here on our WalkJapan tour so it was included in the package price. It is a lovely place with a first class onsen, very nice, well appointed traditional rooms. The food was incredible ! Absolutely the most beautiful presentation we saw in our 18 day trip. True artistry.
