For car drivers with GPS, this ryokan is extremely easy to find and located conveniently by the road. There are ample parking lots just next to the hotel entrance. Tourists who have rented cars in other parts of Japan and have driven up, down and around narrow, winding, sometimes two-way one-lane roads will know what I mean. The ryokan is... More

My husband, daughter and I spent two nights at Shima Onsen Kashiwaya Ryokan in March. Our stay was absolutely delightful. The wonderful hospitality began when I was making the reservation and Mr Kashiwabara recommended we take a bus from near Tokyo station which stops near the Ryokan--I recommend it as well; the hotel can arrange a package that includes this...

My husband and I purchased the package online including roundtrip bus ride from Tokyo (highly recommend this!) plus one night stay included dinner n breakfast. All I can say is wish we could stay longer! Love the private onsen & wonderful hospitality! :)

Had no problem locating the ryokan.Train & bus ride was very scenic. Bus driver and locals were helpful and friendly too. Personal greetings and a warm welcome by ryokan owner and staff! We were provided bicycles to explore the town area, with shops selling handmade soba, ramen, and other jap snacks. Terrain was ideal for trekking. We stayed in the... More

Nice place, great food and staff were extremely nice and accommodating. Service was great. The 3 private onsen baths were great for couples. My husband and I had a relaxing time there, spending our time walking up to the mountains to view the Shinagawa Dam. Walk was lovely and peaceful. Definitely, a great place to go for a getaway, from... More

Service was excellent. The meals excellent and quite large consisting of many courses all carefully prepared. The staff were sensitive also to specific needs such as my wife who does not like raw fish or beef or indeed much meat at all. They adapted menus and came up with wonderful alternatives. The onsen baths were great including three private ones... More

Kashiwaya Ryokan was definitely a highlight of our time in Japan. It's in a gorgeous area about an hour from Nakanojo, surrounded by misty mountains, a cute town, and a lovely river. The staff were all incredibly accommodating, and the outdoor baths were each unique and lovely. Only cons: while we were there, there appeared to be only one English-speaking... More

A beautiful traditional inn, with lovely rooms and private outdoor baths- such an excellent idea for those wanting to experience an onsen stay, but with some inhibitions and uncertainty regarding bathing etiquette. The baths were as inviting as they look in the pictures. Dinner was memorable with a delicious selection of typical Japanese dishes, all beautifully arranged. The staff were... More
