Go to this place if you visit Japan!! Set in a narrow gorge with a strong flowing river you can escape the madness of Tokyo in less than 2 hours. Relax by the river in the natural hot springs and let your mind drift off. Breakfast and dinner are included in the price. The food is absolutely top notch and... More

If you are looking for an authentic japanese experience, staying at least one night at a "ryokan" is worth the effort (price and getting there...). My wife and I spent 2 weeks in Japan and staying at Takaragawa Onsen was the highlight of our trip! 1- It is an authentic, traditional centuries-old ryokan (you are given traditional "kimonos" - yukatas...

We stayed there only one night in January 2015. The winter view was amazing. The room was not very clean, but we were happy with its classic tradition ryokan style. The keiseiki dinner, prepared by ryokan, was fantastic.

A traditional ryokan with a beautiful onsen in a natural, river setting. A wonderful place to experience a traditional Japanese way of life in the ryokan and then to unwind in a gorgeous natural setting by soaking in the outdoor onsens along the river.

We stayed only one night at this onsen. We made our own way which involve taking the Shinkansen to Takasaki Station, changing to a local train to Minakami Station followed by a local bus journey, but was worth the effort. Book half-board as the service and dinner is an experience in itself. The Onsen was in a fantastic setting, with... More

Stayed here for 2 nights in a Japanese-style room. Absolutely loved it. Yes there are bears in a cage, which I don't agree with but everything else is wonderful. You won't regret it. The place is stunning, the hot pools themselves are beautiful and the food was incredible.

The outdoor onsen is really nice. the hotel is old but the rooms are very nice, looking to the river. You sleep with the sound of the river. Food is not as great as we expected but lots of courses to taste different japanese food. The staff is very friendly. We had a great experince there.

This onsen is truly beautiful, starting from the trip by the free shuttle from the station, which takes you deeper into the mountains over picturesque gorges with blue-green river running at the bottom. Then you arrive at the onsen and you're thinking 'this is it?' well don't get fooled by the look of the place from the parking lot, once... More

Our trip to Japan couldn't be complete without a visit to a traditional Onsen (natural hot spring), and Takaragawa Onsen came as highly trusted recommendation from a friend, a vivid traveler and blogger, who claimed that was "the best" Onsen in Japan to be found. Now, having the opportunity to stay there I can most certainly atest to it as... More
