渋温泉 古久屋 Kokuya

casual Ryokan/Inn
Kokuya / Nagano Shiga・North Shiga・Yudanakashibu 6


Kokuya is one of the oldest inns that has maintained the hot spring of Shibu onsen for the past 400 years. 
Located in the center of the hot spring village, it has been supplying hot spring water to inns in the area over 16 generations.  

We are proud to introduce "9 indoor baths with 16 bathtubs", filled with loads of attractive features of Shibu Onsen. 
It offers 9 baths with 100% natural hot spring using water from the six sources of hot springs that they own. Clean and gentle hot water has been attracting many travelers from all over Japan as well as from overseas.   

Blessed with fertile soil, Shinshu has been producing plentiful of fresh vegetables each season. A Japanese kaiseki course offered with our plan consists of dishes that are full of colors and nutrients and are pleasing to your eyes and mouth. 

How about a little tour of the building?
There is an underground passage that leads guests to the source of the hot springs. The passage is like a maze. The spring water flowing from the base of a huge rock reminds us of the predecessors who had kept and maintained the source of the hot spring water we still enjoy now.  

Soak yourself in a hot spring bath located in an old inn with a classic tea room structure. Indulge in a restful moment, a luxury Koku-ya can offer.

Read more 先日はお世話になりありがとうございました。 お風呂はとても心地よく入らせていただきました。しかし、それ以外のお部屋やサービスについては期待はずれでした。 歴史のある宿ということで、レトロで趣のあるお部屋をイメージしていましたが、グレーのカーペットをはじめいたるところに残念な要素がたくさんありました。 お食事は普通。特に美味しいと思えるものはなく、最後のデザートについては市販の物をお皿にのせましたという感じで、これなら無い方がいいのではと感じたほどです。また、お食事中は従業員の方のバタバタガチャガチャという音で落ち着いていただくことも出来ず、不快な気持ちさえ抱きました。 喧騒を離れてゆっくり過ごしたかったので、とても残念でありません。 正直に申し上げてこのおもてなし、施設にお支払いする額としては高いと思います。非常にがっかりです。 辛辣な言葉となり申し訳ございません。今後に期待を込めて注進させていただきました。

Thank you for being indebted the other day. I entered the bath very comfortably. However, other rooms and services were disappointing. I was imagining a quaint room with a retro in that it was a historic inn, but there were many disappointing elements in places like gray carpets. Dining is normal. There was nothing that seemed particularly delicious, and for the last dessert I felt that it was better not to have this on the disposable items on the dish. Also, during meals, employees could not settle down with the sound of rattling rattling, even embracing even unpleasant feelings. I wanted to spend relaxing away from the hustle and it was not a shame. To be honest I think that it is expensive to pay for this hospitality and facilities. I am very disappointed. I am sorry for being a bitter word. We have made a promise with expectation in the future.

I enjoyed various baths. The meal was also very delicious and satisfied. The person in charge carefully explained and it was easy to understand. It is a lodging with many stairs, was it good to go now? I look back on it.
