casual Ryokan/Inn Go To トラベル対象
Shima Tamura / Gunma Shima・Azuma・Kawarayu 188


Shima Tamura's history goes all the way back to the Muromachi period. 
This inn has stood by for hundreds of years alongside the famous hot spring that has continued to flow. 

In the past this long-established inn was the inn of choice for famous people
 such as Kotaro Takamura (Japanese poet), Mokichi Saito, (Japanese poet), and Yugure Maeda (Japanese author). 

It has long been told that the Shima Onsen can cure ailments and many have come over the years to seek healing. It is said that the folks who came together spent their time harmoniously, with each other and with nature. It is in such a place that Shima Tamura sits and we are proud to continue the tradition of delivering the omotenashi hospitality of the healing hot springs. 

And it is at Shima Tamura that one is able to experience what has been named the most authentic onsen in the nation. Everyday 1600 liters of fresh spring water are brought in through 7 fountainheads to provide our guests with the ultimate onsen experience. 

From the large windows in the guests rooms, you can gaze out at the beautiful mountains. The Japanese style rooms provide a perfect atmosphere to relax in. 

Our authentic kaiseki style cuisine will be a feast for your eyes as well as your mouth. The menu changes on a monthly basis and sets you on a journey of seasonal flavors. 

Come join us at Shima Tamura where you can experience the history of Gunma, frolic with the surrounding nature, and be treated with warm omotenashi hospitality.

The room, rice and hot springs were wonderful and I was very relaxed. I was worried about the souvenir shop's business hours (especially during breaks) and the shower in the large communal bath, but other than that, I was very happy and had a wonderful time! I definitely want to stay again. Thank you very much.

Since I first used it 26 years ago, I was impressed by the wonderful customer service and used it occasionally, but this time it was disappointing. The room smelled, the pillows smelled dry, the spider web in the room, and the lack of explanation at check-in made me feel that it had changed. That 40,000 Tamura used to be a place I wanted to go even if I thought so and paid a high fee. It was before the 4.5-year school that I felt uncomfortable about customer service. That's what I felt

A long-established inn with over 500 years of history. Enjoy soaking in one of our 8 baths that are supplied with 1800 liters of water each day from our 7 fountainheads located on site. Our water is never cycled back through the system so that you can enjoy a truly authentic onsen experience. Our water can also be bottled and consumed. Refresh yourself as you soak in the mineral rich water and take in the crisp air, views of the mountains, and sound of the river.
