Ryokan/Inn Go To トラベル対象
Wafu no Yado Masuya / Nagano Shiga・North Shiga・Yudanakashibu 26

Overview

Over 140 years have passed since Masuya first opened. From the very beginning, it has offered baths that use natural kakenagashi onsen water that comes directly from the source hot spring. All patrons of Masuya have loved it as a small inn that offers superb hospitality.

Shinshyu region's renowned Yudanaka onsen is said to have been discovered by the Buddhist high priest, Gyoki, 1,300 years ago. The onsen has never ran dry in over 1,000 years. During the Edo period, Yudanaka onsen prospered as a stopover for travelers going between Kusatsu and Zenkouji. The travelers sought the onsen, known for producing abundant amounts of onsen water, which healed different ailments depending on which source hot spring it was coming from.

At Masuya onsen, water drawn from four different source hot springs can be enjoyed in bathes whose designs retain the beauty of the bathes of the past era.

Included in the Top Dining Experience section of the book, "Top One hundred Hotels and Ryokans Chosen by Professionals," the inn prides itself on the cuisine it offers. Along with the bounties of the land and the rivers of northern Shinshu, seasonal ingredients are used in the Shinshu cuisine offered to guests that is presented in a way so that it is also a feast to the eyes.

From the guest rooms a panoramic view of the Hokushin Gogaku mountains and the Northern Alps can be seen. The spacious guestrooms where within there is a subtle scent of trees will soothe tired travelers.

Walking on stone-paved road wearing wooden clogs around Yudanaka and Shibu Onsen at dusk will allow you to experience the old-time onsen village.

A natural hot spring that has never gone dry in 1,000 years, highly-praised Shinshu cuisine that is made using local seasonal ingredients, hospitality that only a small exclusive inn can provide: Masuya's way of treating its patrons has been unchanged since the Edo period. Come stay at the inn and allow yourself to unwind.

It was a wonderful and heartwarming inn. The rooms and baths were all kept clean, and the corona measures were well taken, so I was able to spend my time with peace of mind. The landlady and the staff were kind and liked it. Both the bath in the room and the large communal bath were the best! The food was also devised and it was very delicious. In addition, I would like to stay! ︎
