We stayed two nights, soaked in the traditional wooden onsen, watched snow falling across the cedars and ate superb food. Smooth and unobtrusive service, lovely old building, just enough modern conveniences. We love you Hoshi Onsen!

This place is as traditional as you can get in this modern world. for that, many things were forgiven and was all taken as good authentic experience. getting there: my experience was to take the kanto wide pass with shinkansen stopping at takasaki. rented a car and took a slow leisurely drive and stopped along many distractions along the way...

I visited Chojukan in September with my family. It was an amazing! I just loved it!!! This hot spring is very hidden, only one way to get to this place. Building is beautiful old Japanese style and well kept. Room was big, 4 of us fit in one room and it was spotless. Dinner and breakfast was delicious. I loved...

Hoshi Onsen is a beautiful and secluded ryokan within easy reach of Tokyo. Take the Shinkansen from Tokyo station to Jomo Kogen station (1h) where you can take a taxi to Hoshi Onsen (30min). The taxi is about ¥8,000 but definitely worth it. The ryokan is beautiful, traditional and clean and the sleeping arrangements are not that uncomfortable for one...

We visited this ryokan in January as part of a week trip to Japan. I was here with a friend and we stayed one night. Firstly, getting here requires quite a bit of traveling. You would have to take the shinkansen to jomo kōgen and then transfer to a bus service, twice. One to sarugakyo and another to hoshi onsen....

This onsen ryokan is hidden in the mountains, very rustic and relaxing. You can here the sound of the stream gushing. The onsens are very atmospheric, there are seperate bathing as well as mix bathing, assigned by different timing of the day. They have both indoor and outdoor onsens. Their oldest indoor onsen is by most favorite. I have been...

Stayed here for 2 nights during winter for our honey moon. The Ryokan is secluded and located near the foot of a mountain with a river running through it. The room was large and clean, and service was excellent. There are three onsens, 2 indoor and 1 with combined indoor and outdoor onsens. Dinner and breakfast is served in the...

This is one of those places that is better reviewed by not sharing the details. Sufficient to say that it was one of the most unique experiences we have had travelling around the world. Best to not go with expectations and simply see what it unfolds for yourself. If you are looking for a lot of action, this place will...

Traditional ryokan in a relaxing mountain setting. A must for anyone wanting to experience the traditional ryokan accommodation & onsen experience. The 3 onsens available were all clean and well maintained. One is available for mixed bathing, all have specified times for separate gender bathing so you can experience them all. I saw a few ladies bathing with visible tattoos,...

We were looking for a really traditional Japanese Ryokan / Onsen experience, and we found it. Chojukan place was built in the 1870s, as a place along the Mikunikaido foot-highway for Tokyo folks to come out and relax, and it is gorgeous inside.  It has several large very traditional indoor onsen bathing areas, and one outdoor "rotenburo" all of which...
