Make this ryokan your home away from home, with only 1-minute walk to Biwako Lake shores and gorgeous views of the lake from any of our rooms. The cozy atmosphere of Biwako Lake combined with our savory cuisine full of Omi Gyu (one of Japan's three best Wagyu Japanese beefs) and the local Shiga fresh ingredients will turn our ryokan into your favorite retreat that you would like to revisit every chance you get.
Accommodations that have achieved high customer satisfaction and that can be enjoyed casually.

Our public baths are named after Tanabata, also known as the Star Festival, a Japanese festival celebrating the meeting of the deities Orihime and Hikoboshi (represented by the stars Vega and Altair respectively). The gentlemen-only bath is "Hikoboshi no Yu" and the ladies-only bath is "Orihime no Yu" to celebrate these lovers-deities who are separated by the Milky Way in the sky, and are allowed to meet only once a year on the seventh day of the seventh lunar month of the lunisolar calendar. Our baths are not hot-spring, but are very welcoming and relaxing with a splendid view of our Japanese garden.Read moreClose
