Visited in July 2013 with two friends. Spent one night. As others have indicated, the building itself is not as charming as some of the photos may suggest. Age and some wear is noticeable, but I have to say that overall our room was very nice, clean and comfortable. The food was okay, but not spectacular. If I'm honest, it... More

It is one of the most incredible experiences in japan. In Europe we are used to SPAs or balnearies but the experience here is completely different. Typical Japanese rooms with very kind staff and hot water thermal baths. There you can experience real Japanese food, but sometimes you beg for a western style food... It's unforgettable! Very recommendable

I love this ryokan ! this place is excellent and recommended for the couples! although its crowded in the afternoon but very quiet and few people at night. The cons are the room is quiet expensive and the food is not that delicious as its very traditional and local food from Gunma (vegetable, mushroom, udon, fish and bear soup :(... More

We stayed in Maebashi and made a daytrip to this famous Onsen. In Maebashi the sun was shining...but on the way the rain became harder and harder. When we got out in Minakami-machi it was more foggy than raining. We took the bus and later on got picked up by the Onsen's shuttle service. So far, nobody informed us, that... More

Just returned from a one-night stay here with my wife and her (Japanese) parents. We all came away with the same opinion. This is a slightly below-average onsen ryokan with exceptional outdoor baths that must rank among the best in Japan. Good for a day trip (hi-gaeri). Indeed, the rotenburo and their natural setting are near perfect, with quaint stone... More

Takaragawa has been rated as one of the top outdoor hot spring experiences in Japan, and it surely is up there. I had been there on a day trip years ago, in winter with snow all around, this time in the spring with cherry blossoms. Takaragawa gives you the hot springs experience with the mountain scenery and tumbling river, traditional... More

My boyfriend and I booked this Onsen as part as our vacation. We took the shinkansen train from Osaka to Tokyo (3 hours) then took another train from Tokyo Terminal to Jomokogen station (about 1 hr). As soon as we got off the train there stood a nice gentleman with a sign escorting us to the shuttle bus. We made... More

A must visit in Japan. The nearest Ryokan tfrom Tokyo, took 3 trains for 3 hours and they will pick up at the Minakami Station. Very traditional Ryokan, we enjoyed so much on the Japanese traditional culture and living. Situated in the middle of jungle, there are still cold and snow during Spring time this year, Sakura can be found... More

We spent a night in this onsen on April 2014. The building structure is a bit old, but our stance was very large and cured. The baths are impressive and very relaxing. The dinner in the restaurant was very good and hearty, at the right price.
