Ryokan with a history of Shimosuwa hot spring being as a main inn of Nakasendo.
Daimyo in Edo era, Empress Kazunomiya in Bakumatsu period, remarkable writer Ryunosuke Akutagawa, and Toson Shimazaki after the Meiji era, have visited ‘Chousenkaku Kameya’.

Hayashi izumi Garden was built by Enshu Kobori from Azuchi Momoyama era to early Edo era and is a beautiful sight with seasonal flowers.
You can watch the sight that the ancient travelers had experienced throughout the ages.

You can feel the charming point of this garden from your room.
Please open the window and see a completely different sight.
From ‘Fuji no ma’ you get the best view of the garden.

The hot spring in Shimosuwa has been known as a great hot spring since ancient times.
Our hot spring is famous as ‘Wata no yu’. According to the legend, God put Wata (cotton) where the hot spring comes out from.
Please try to feel the great hot spring in our public spa and a private bath.

The dinner is the modern style that incorporates local cuisine.
We cook each dish with our heart and use seasonal ingredients.

While our ryokan keeps certain traditions, our surroundings are modern and beautiful and you will notice it during your stay.

New Wing Japanese Room


It was a very pleasant stay, although it was a child-friendly hotel, such as having high quality hot springs and charter outdoor baths, historic rooms and exhibits and even when we go skiing we have kind service and care. Suwa Taisha was just a short walk away, and the calm, shiny atmosphere and air feeling was also very comfortable.

Read more 皇女和宮の御降嫁、参勤交代などの歴史を垣間見ることが出来る「上段の間」、神が化粧水を浸した綿を置いた場所から温泉が湧いたという伝説の名湯「綿の湯」といった、ストーリーが気に入り宿泊させて頂きました。今回の宿泊で最も良かったのは食事で、夕食では旬の食材を使った郷土料理を堪能し、また朝食もとても美味しく頂きました。諏訪大社下社秋宮からも至近で、また下諏訪駅からも歩ける距離だというのも大変魅力的だと思います。1泊2日という短い時間でしたがとても良い思い出になりました。どうもありがとうございました。

"The upper stage" where you can glimpse the history of the Imperial Women's Palace's birthplace, the attendance exchange, etc. The legend's famous hot spring "Kotonoyu" that a hot spring got out from the place where God soaked the cosmetic lotion The story was fond of like that, we stayed. The best thing about this stay was meals, and for dinner we enjoyed local cuisine using seasonal ingredients, and breakfast was also very delicious. I think that it is very attractive to say that it is a short distance from Suwa Taisha Shimosha Akamiya and it is a short walk from Shimosuwa station. It was a short time of two days but it was a very good memory. Thank you very much.
