We enjoyed a relaxing break here in between our visit of Tokyo. The authentic feeling and sober atmosphere made us calm down after having spend some time in Tokyo. The possibility they offer to arrange transport by bus from downtown Tokyo makes this the perfect break from the megacity.

Our room was really nice and came with a really great balcony overlooking the nearby river. Food was delicious. The entire place was spotless clean. The chartered onsen baths are amazing, but in the winter months it may be quite an ordeal to shower in the open air shower stations next to the chartered baths, so it might be smarter... More

I choose the package option with bus from Tokyo and the ryokan managed bookings, which was very convenient. I used also the free bicycle to... More

We stayed here on 2 January, a lovely and quiet way to welcome 2016. The communication with the ryokan by email beforehand was extremely good and efficient, and it is a beautiful space. For us, we really wanted to have a private onsen, and this we got! We tried one of the private onsen rooms, which was nice, but the... More

Three of us had a wonderful time at the Ryokan last month. Although the autumn peak was over, we still get to enjoy the quiet and serene nature of the place. The kiseki food was creative and it was excellent cuisine. We really enjoyed the privacy of the onsen in the room. Staff were helpful yet not intrusive. It was... More

Best Ryokan inn I've stayed in Japan. Staff were experience and knowledgeable, and friendly. They've made my stay really comfortable, rejuvenating and happy. I was very impressed by the meals and hospitality.

We took the small package that included the bus ride to and from the Ryokan. Let me tell you it was such a nice and relaxing trip. The bus ride is a straight shot to the Ryokan it makes just one 15 minute stop so you can use the bathroom and/or grab a bite to eat. You are dropped off... More

It was quite a task just trying to find that one Ryokan we loved and agreed on staying at. Kashiwaya Ryokan was the perfect match for us. From viewing the website to booking to arriving and finally leaving, I felt so confident we were going to be well taken care of. And we were, no doubt! Masuo is one of... More

Kashiwaya Ryokan Onsen is the real thing, only with slight adjustments for the comfort of foreigners. For example, private baths are available (first-come first-served when we were there, but no trouble getting in) so couples do not have to separate; we were provided English-language instructions and menu (for traditional Japanese washoku); and despite its being tucked away in the mountains,...
