This was by far one of the top experiences of my 2 month excursion to Japan. Nestled in the mountains north of Tokyo and next to a river is a historic Ryokan with amazing onsen with a traditional atmosphere. Know what it is not: it is not a western resort, and it is not a new facility. But what it... More

I can understand the other bad reviews and how others can have a not so good experience. The place is not new and there are signs of wear and tear. We paid about $100/p, which includes pickup from the shinkazen station, dinner, breakfast, use of spa, an old room with no bathroom, and drop off back at the station. For... More

We took a Shinkansen from Tokyo to Minakami, and then a taxi from Minakami to the Onsen. (You can take a free shuttle, but it didn't match up with our timing). The Shinkansen was enjoyable and beautiful and relaxing. The taxi ride was also fun because it gave us a chance to practice our Japanese, and the driver pointed out... More

Takaragawa is very close to tokyo, it takes less that 2 hours to go there. Once arrived you will be surrounded by a beautiful nature. the sound of the river will the soundtrack of this lovely Onsen, which, however, has also important aspects of modernity in the structure. I recommend you to take a bath in the onsen before dinner... More

I went there with my friend and we loveed it! I looked for some typical onsen in japan and I guess these are the best ones! They are natural because they are "made" by an hot river that flows in the middle of the structure. Don't worry for the fact that you "have" to be naked, you can go inside... More

Worst place I have ever encountered in all my travels around Japan. Really tacky, grubby, sad and stinky. Guests are rushed in and out like it’s a factory line, none of the staff seem to care at all. I can’t believe how overpriced it is, the place is a dump. The tatami mats in the rooms are extremely old and... More

This is a very late review, as we went for Christmas last year. The drive up is pretty scary - the driver obviously being very comfortable on the ice and snow after picking us up at the train station, but he was going pretty quick in the mountains on icy roads so a little scary for me. When you first... More

My family party of 15 (adults and teenagers) came to Takaragawa Onsen to continue a family reunion that had started a week earlier in Tokyo. Half of us stayed one night, the other half stayed two nights. A private bus owned and operated by the ryokan collects visitors from the Jomo-Kogen shinkansen station, and half an hour later, we arrived... More

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
