I visited the place with my mother who came to see me in Tokyo. As she is not used to the concept of a shared onsen, we chose this place for its private baths. We had a wonderful suite with our own small outdoor bath on our balcony. Additionally, there are several baths that are accessible all night, shared with... More

This lovely traditional ryokan was peaceful amd elegant, with beautiful private baths as well as some of the most delicious and varied meals we had anywhere in Japan. The surrounding town and countryside are lovely, with rivers and waterfalls within a short drive. The staff were friendly and very attentive without being intrusive on our privacy.

Kashiwaya Ryokan is a very nice place to spend a night and experience how the life should be. Enjoy your time using the private rotenburo, taste the delicious japanese cooking having dinner in your room... There is free wifi that works pretty well, very convenient since there is no data coverage in the town (at least didnt work for me).... More

After many countless searches online, Kashiwaya Ryokan suited our needs the best! One of them being Tattoo friendly. Since not many places allow tattoos at Onsen. Secondly, private baths. If you aren't so comfortable being naked in front of others. You have the option to use 3 luxurious private baths at your disposal. Thirdly English friendly. And lastly, the option... More

After having spent 5 week in hectic Tokyo, this was a wonderful and relaxing change of scenery. Great bus connection that the ryokan can arrange for you. The ryokan is delightful. Very friendly, lovely rooms, super onsen(s), good food and best of all, really peaceful and away from it all. Great walks. Why 4 and not 5 stars? Well probably... More

My partner and I spent three nights here in late March 2016. It was undoubtedly the highpoint of our two weeks in Japan. After the crowds and frenetic pace of Tokyo, this place was a godsend. Neither of us had ever stayed in a traditional Japanese Inn before and this is an ideal place to get your feet wet, so... More

My wife and I spent one night at the ryokan this weekend, and we would definitely recommend it.
