渋ホテル Shibu Hotel

casual Ryokan/Inn
Shibu Hotel / Nagano Shiga・North Shiga・Yudanakashibu 11


Shibu Hotel takes pride in its emphasis on gratitude, conscientiousness, propriety, attention to detail, and its ability to meet demands. It is the aim of the Shibu Hotel to be a "heartwarming hotel".

Shibu Onsen is surrounded by the Five Peaks of Northern Nagano mountain range and the Shiga Highlands. The hot springs has a 1300-year history and welcomes you with a nostalgic atmosphere.

Shibu Hotel greets you with a warm welcome and a warm farewell. 
The 3rd generation owner has carried on this this spirit of "omotenashi" that has been a keystone of the Shibu Hotel since its founding. From each of the rooms, guests can enjoy the seasonal views of hills and river. The rooms themselves are not particularly fancy, but they emit a feeling of nostalgia that beckons you to a peace and quiet unconstrained by time.

We run natural hot springs all night long in the bathhouse. The indoor bath is an old-fashioned style atrium made of cypress, the outdoor bath is enclosed by a bamboo fence, and a private bath is also available for our guests. All of our baths overflow with the spring waters drawn from the onsen. 

Meals are served in the traditional Japanese kaiseki (full course meal) style with seasonal Northern Nagano ingredients collected locally.

Why not stay at our simple yet heartwarming accommodations where the Showa era atmosphere invites you to take the time to relax.

thank you for helping me. When I met a car outside the gate in the cold we thought that I was glad to be here. On the way home we had to pay the car's snow together, and at that time I was told that "I came to see the monkey in December, so I remembered it by phone," I remembered. I was very happy that you could remember the conversation though it was just one of the customers. Because hot springs and meals were also nice, I definitely would like to take care of them when I go to the monkey park. Thank you.

1) There was no smoking room, but it was dealing with deodorant, but unfortunately the deodorization is inadequate. The smell of cigarette remains. I think that it is necessary to introduce an air purifier. 2) When tea cakes etc. were not set at the time of guiding to the room, the staff who showed us had noticed that they noticed it, but no response was made. For some reason it was a cup of tea and towel at the time of preparing the futon. This will be a problem. The same staff was in charge of meals, but did not care enough as well. On the other hand, breakfast-ready staff were very kind. For caring, I think whether there is any characteristic in the first place rather than mastered. 3) The dinner was very tasty. On the other hand, breakfast is impressive as normal.
