Shima Tamura

casual Ryokan/Inn
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.

7つの温泉に癒されてました。各お風呂場に部屋の鍵を入れられるBoxがあると良いですね。すべての脱衣場がカゴだけに、ちょっと不安でした。 夕飯も残す事なく完食。質も量もちょうど良かったです。また季節を変えて訪れたいと思います。

It was healed by seven hot springs. It would be nice to have a box where you can lock your room in each bathroom. All the dressing room was a bit uneasy just for the basket. Completed without leaving dinner. The quality and quantity were just right. I would also like to visit by changing the season.

The person in charge of dinner The customer service was the best. Although it takes quite a while to get to the rice by drinking alcohol before meals, the response to additional orders and so on ... I've been asking you a few more times but this was the best. I was going to go with my husband on the wedding anniversary trip, but after all, it was a trip that we went with the son of our treasure and three people, and the hot spring bath was only the best trip This is it. The bath in the room was great for me who was weak. When we look at the reception of each employee, it is possible to imagine what kind of person the manager is, when we take care of handing each person one by one to the tray during the viking. I received a teacup in the form of a small item. Serve a paper crane and congratulations on your wedding anniversary at the end of dinner! I'm the one who should be thanking you. This time I stayed for only one night, but next time I plan to go to stay slowly

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.
