Almost perfect mix of 90 years' of ryokan hospitality know-how, and updated infrastructure, design, and facilities. One of the most impressive formal Japanese dinners we've ever had, and the sommelier is an enthusiastic guide who really made the whole experience work for us. We will be back...

My partner and I stayed at Tobira Onsen Myojinkan for three nights, and overall, I thought it was a great property and a very good option for a traditional ōnsen. Reading the reviews, I was kind of mixed and uncertain what to expect. Ultimately, going here for one or two days is not a good investment of time, because you cannot enjoy the amenities and location when you’re constantly on the move to get to this somewhat isolated spot. 3 to 4 days is ideal to take advantage of all aspects of staying here. When we arrived, we viewed both a Japanese-style room in a Western-style room, and they both were gorgeous. All the rooms have been renovated and the attention to detail is impressive. Because of our loyalty status with Relais & Chateaux hotels, we were given the opportunity to upgrade to a Western room. Our particular room was one of the 14 with an indoor/outdoor private bath, which was the highlight of our stay. Having the ability to just hop in your own tub and enjoy the scenery is a great amenity. All the rooms have a bath in them, as do most hotels in Japan for that matter, but the indoor/outdoor aspect was really great even in winter. The food was also a standout. Breakfast and dinner are included in the rate, which you should factor in when you see the prices. We had two Japanese meals and one French meal, which you can choose to your liking. The Japanese traditional meal was extensive and tasty and quite the performance. It definitely made me feel like I was at a traditional Japanese resort. The menu changes with the seasons and whatever is fresh, and this area of Japan is a veritable bread basket for fruits and vegetables, as well as beef. There are three main onsen baths for guests, which are segregated based on gender.  If you haven't done this type of experience before, after the first day you get the hang of it and what you're supposed to do in terms of bathing before and after. It is a very calming experience, to say the least. There is also a daily shuttle down the mountain to Matsumoto, which you should take advantage of if you are staying for three or more days. (If you're staying for one or two days, I would remain on the property so you get as much use out of the onsen and other amenities that you can.) Matsumoto is a very walkable town with good shops and lots of history -- perfect for a daytrip and then onsen baths when you return! We loved Tobira Onsen Myojinkan, and had a fantastic time.

We stayed for just one night but thoroughly enjoyed the experience and wish we had stayed longer. The rooms were perfectly appointed and comfortable. The meals and service were exceptional. The onsen experience was also lovely, very soothing and private. Thank you for such a wonderful experience!

Few western rooms, most are traditional ryokan and are lovely. This place is somewhat inaccessible, so you really must want to stay here! Charming change of pace but so out of the way. We were on a tour so meals and transport were taken care of. Would not go privately.

First I have to say ALL the people that I have come in contact with have been wonderful, caring and helpful. From months ago when I emailed for information about the options of room styles and food allergies and likes and dislikes for my wife, I was treated incredibly well. Hina has communicated so many times and has never lost her patience with me. Then once we got here she continued to be very nice and helpful. The room that we have is very large, with a separate sitting area. The bathroom is just as Hina said it would be. A walk in shower and a hand rail. The service is amazing. Whatever your heart desires they will provide. When you want to go to and from Matsumoto they provide two morning and two afternoon shuttle buses. They are very punctual. The shuttle bus rides are included in your rate. The room rates are very reasonable when you consider that you get a full breakfast, either Japanese or Western food. The evening dinner is also included and remember this is a Relais& Chateaux, so you know it will be great. We had dinner the first night in the French restaurant here on the property. I have posted pictures of the dishes. There were many different wonderful tastes and that makes it a bargain. I have not yet eaten in the Japanese restaurant but I am sure it will be special. Tonight I get to go to the hot springs and can’t wait. Just got back and it was so relaxing, serene and therapeutic. I highly recommend coming here for that as well as the treatment by the staff and the restaurants. You become totally spoiled. Also they provide a Club lounge where you can get good snacks and drinks, even some alcoholic ones. From 3-7 pm each day. I would also highly recommend the spa for massages. I went each of three days for two hours each time. She has a heavenly touch. Not too hard. I don’t know how she is able to keep it up for two hours without a break. But she did and it was terrific. Her name is Ayaka Iijima. Ask for her she is great. I can’t recommend this place highly enough.
