We had an amazing stay at Kashiwaya Ryokan! The three private onsen baths were stunning, and the choice of a western style breakfast was so appreciated. Even though it was a rainy day, the views were something to behold. Staff were very welcoming. We would definitely stay again!

CIzzay‐san Thank you for your review. We are glad that you have enjoyed your stay here. It is a shame it was rainy. But in Winter season, you might be able to see snowing while soaking in the outdoor bath. It is so beautiful and Please try visiting us in the other seasons, too. Looking forward to seeing you again.

Hotel's Favorite
This was, with no stretch of the imagination, one of the best things we did in Japan. From the kindness of the staff, to the cleanliness of the property and the baths, to the amazing food, so well worth the trip from Tokyo and I am sad we only stayed one night. Tattoo friendly as well which was hard to find. I searched through #tattoofriendlyonsen on Instagram to find this place and am so glad I did. My partner and I stayed in the Hana room, Japanese futon style bed with private onsen bath. the room was peaceful and tidy, with beautiful tatami mat floors and a great view over the river. We went for the full kaiseki dinner and it did not disappoint. If we had known earlier we might have ordered the extra meat portion, but as-is it was perfectly filling and a wonderful exploration of traditional cuisine. The three private baths are each worth a visit, and they open at 5am. So, if you are also suffering from jetlag like we did, you too can take advantage and greet the sun from the open air baths. It wasn't the worst way to start the morning, I can tell you that. Overall, amazing!

Stayed here in February and exceeded my expectations because of the service, the availability of high quality private outdoor onsen, and beef dinner Kaiseki was amazing! Really good value at this place and having the river view room was peaceful.

I was on a quest to experience a relaxing natural setting with rotenburo in the snow, and this place exceeded my expectations. The facilities are nice and traditional - I had 4 pairs of slippers (outdoor, indoor, toilet and balcony), in addition to a nice yukata and haori. The food was excellent and very traditional. There is a steak option, if you don't like all the kaiseki plates. The staff were all so friendly and helpful. Absolutely every request I made, even when out of the ordinary, was accommodated. The baths were spectacular! The public (for guests only) bath was empty every time I used it. And, I never waited more than 15 minutes to get a private rotenburo. The three private rotenburo are all great. The little changing rooms have a heater, the water is hot (even in sub-zero temperatures) and the little garden with stars above makes for a perfect setting. Bathing here, with the snow falling overhead, in my own private rotenburo, ties for my best bathing experience in 27 years of Japanese living and travel. The other best bath, is a public seaside konyoku rotenburo on Yakushima island. Kashiwaya Ryokan even had traditional umbrellas & straw hats to wear, in the bath, while it's snowing or raining. That was such a nice touch. One of the reasons I selected this place, was the nice public bath located just across the street and river. Well, there was so much nice bathing at my ryokan, during 3 days I did not have the time to go to the nice village bath. I did briefly think it might be nice to use the massage chairs they probably have at the village bath, since that was the only amenity missing at the ryokan. The tiny village has a very natural and traditional setting. There was a small convenience store, one restaurant (closed for the holidays) and a few large and small hotels/ryokans. I think the only elementary school has closed due to dwindling population. The walk up to the dam/lake was nice. I was able to observe/photograph a kamoshika and a troupe of monkeys. And, it seems there are bears in summer. I only passed a handful of humans while out walking. Overall, I would definitely return here. And, I would say this was the best value, and overall experience, I have even had at an onsen ryokan.

MTLbikeman-san Thank you for taking a time to leave us such a wonderful review! We are so glad that you have enjoyed your stay and we have met your expectations. Soaking in the open air bath while snowing is excellent, isn't it :) I have been to the seaside onsen in Yakushima once, too. That was great experience. Thank you for your valuable opinion about a massage chair. Your stay could be more relaxing. Looking forward to seeing you again. Ken
