Located a short taxi ride from Chichibu railway station this is a very traditional Japanese Riyokan or guesthouse. Very limited English is spoken by the hosts but don't let this put you off! Using a combination of mime and google translate we were made very welcome. Our room was as expected, with tatami mat flooring and minimal furnishings ( other than a rather incongruous TV in the corner), air conditioning and a pleasant ante room with doors opening onto a small outdoor space.
Traditional yukata and room socks were available for use.
A splendid multi-course dinner was included, served at the customary early time of 6pm, with an extensive range of Sake to choose from. We were delighted to be invited to go on a short drive after dinner to see fireflies, an unexpected bonus.

We spent just one night in Oyado, but could've wished for more. The moment we stepped into the inn, we were greeted with the kind of warmth and hospitality one afforded to a family member. It was expected that language would be a barrier, as English is not widely spoken nor understood in the region off the beaten path in Saitama.

The room was immaculately clean, spacious and full of amenities. Everything was provided from head to toe, so one could check in without bringing anything but just themselves. Traditional Japanese dinner and breakfast were included in the package, and the spread was fit for royalty. Just when we thought we were done, good food kept coming in. The baths were separated by sex, but can be reserved for personal use from 8 to 12 p.m. The location of this inn is rather remote and could be difficult for first time visitors... More
