猿ヶ京温泉 生寿苑 Shojuen

Shojuen / Gunma Minakami・Tsukiyono・Sarugakyo・Hoshi 6


On the border of Kanto and Niigata is the satoyama nuzzled into the Mikuni mountain range: Sarugakyo Hot Spring. In the stone wall built by piling up boulders, both white plaster and nature are built into this Sukiya-style residence. This is an inn with a mere 13 rooms and the building itself is filled with an atmosphere of healing.

In Shojuen, there is an anecdote passed down about "zashiki warashi". The Yahata that was enshrined after being revealed by a zashiki warashi that changed its form is still enshrined with great care at Shojuen where it brings good fortune to those who visit.

In a single-story building, all guest rooms are prepared with a floor table. The natural rush tatami is soft and easy to comfortably relax on.

Meals are dishes that reflect the hospitality of Shojuen. One may enjoy the original taste of dishes that use plenty of local ingredients from Gunma Prefecture.

The baths contain spring water that has the exact translucency of lotion and a rich, soft, gentle effect. One can heal the days wear on the body and spirit wrapped in the light calm with gentleness and consideration. It is something you can feel for yourself once your skin is wet.

Sarugakyo Hot Springs Shojuen is where hospitality is taken seriously. We hope you spend a blissful moment here with someone important to you.

A travel acquaintance stayed here and made a reservation with the decisive factor that it was highly acclaimed, but it was a very satisfying trip. Wisdom and ingenuity are overflowing everywhere in the hall, and people who come to stay are considered the best. The scenery seen from the sukiya-style building and the windows that make you feel nostalgic should be a sight that is common in the countryside of Japan, but I think that it was an extraordinary extraordinary experience for Mr. Ikusu. I want to come back again!

Read more 両親の金婚式と父の傘寿祝を兼ねての旅行でした。個室での食事、ケーキの用意などの要望にも事前の打ち合わせから快く対応して下さったこと、感謝しております。肉好きの母は、上州牛に大満足。地酒の飲み比べに父も満足でした。朝食もとても美味しかったです。部屋は広く6人で利用しましたが家族団らんにも十分すぎるほどでした。部屋・お風呂など施設は、掃除が行き届いていましたし、無駄な備品がないところも、私の好きなタイプです。また、静かで、趣のあるたたずまい。ゆったりと過ごすことができました。各部屋に用意された絵馬に願いを託して旅を締めくくれたことも併せて、いい思い出になりました。大変お世話になりました。

It was a trip combining my parents' golden wedding and my father's umbrella congratulation. We appreciate that we responded to the desire of preparing a cake and meals in a private room pleasantly from a prior meeting. The meat-loving mother is very satisfied with the superstar beef. My father was also satisfied with drinking sake compared to sake. The breakfast was also very delicious. The room was widely used by six people, but it was enough for my family group too. The rooms, baths and other facilities were cleaned well, and places without useless furniture are also my favorite type. Moreover, it is quiet, quiet and tidy. I was able to spend relaxingly. It was a wonderful memories as well that I closed my journey by entrusting my wishes to the ema prepared in each room. Thank you for all the help you have given me.

◆Indoor bath・Open-air bath
We have created a stone open-air bath created with boulders from Mt. Omine and pit together by the inn's personnel. Different from man-made baths, this is a popular bath where you can enjoy the hot spring.

◆Private bath: Asahi
We use natural Hiba materials. This is a bath that receives the sun's blessings. This bath was built with that image in mind.

◆Private bath: Yuhi
With the red western sun at this bath, the surrounding also changes when night falls. This stone and tatami bath was created with that image in mind. This is a Japan-made unit bath that functionally combines a wash basin and bath beautifully.

※If the private bath is free, it is available to use. It is not reservation based. There is not wash area (shower).
