The guest room is very good - no much to complain. There is no nature view from the guest room due to the restriction of the area.

Our experience at Araya Totoan was wonderful and would definitely go again. We arrived at Kagaonsen station by JR and was picked up on time by the ryokan's shuttle. Upon arrival, we were shown to our room and greeted with green tea and mochi. The room was super clean and was divided into a living/dining area, bedroom, and bathroom with... More

Visited in May 2011. We have thought between somewhere like Kagaya or smaller ryokan and have decided to visit Araya Totoan. Stayed for two nights and was one of the most relaxing stay I have had.

However the place is magnificent with hot springs piped into the ryokan, excellent japanese quisine and sufficient english in the house to ensure that the stay is hassle free. It also has a neat bar next door. This is a small inn, so dont expect... More

“Araya Totoan” written in Japanese as “あらや滔々庵” is an excellent gourmet Ryokan in Yamashiro Hot Spring village that Kitaoji Rosanjin( 1883-1959 artist, ceramicist, restaurateur, etc.) enjoyed the dinner here quite often when he was learning pottery in this village. One day he painted a legendary crow on a screen which was shown in the entrance of this Ryokan. Later he... More

Araya Totoan`history extends back to 1639, starting with an order by the ruler of the Maeda Family, to protect the Yamashiro hot spring, which he owned. We have been running for 18th generations. You can enjoy Kitaoji Rosanjin`s works, Kutani ware and contemporary arts in everywhere our ryokan. Our ryokan is located in very near from Kanazawa-city,30 min by train, and from Komatsu airpot, 30 min by car.
