大正屋 Taishoya

Taishoya / Saga Ureshino・Takeo 1


This beautiful hotel is a traditional Japanese ryokan style hotel. It is very quiet and is surrounded by greenery. Despite being located in the heart of the spa town of Ureshino, it has a relaxing and tranquil environment. This hotel is a historical building founded in 1925 and you can feel the trust of this hotel in history and tradition.

Once you enter the hotel, you can feel the calming atmosphere and forget your busy days.
This hotel was designed by Junzo Yoshimura of the Japan Art Academy who designed the new Imperial Palace in Tokyo. The hotel has visible beauty anyone can see and is filled with attractions throughout the hotel.

Delicate service shows through our thought. We put forth great effort to ensure guests are satisfied and we want to be a perfect hotel for their stay.

The Ureshino hot springs are among the top three destinations in Japan for hot spring water. The water is good for drinking and bathing in. You can enjoy a small waterfall and a beautiful pond with carp fish in the bathing room.

Please enjoy our specialty dishes such as seafood from the Ariake Sea as well as Saga beef. There are also other dishes such as hot water tofu, which uses the hot spring’s hot water to boil tofu. Our chef delicately cooks this tofu, which comes directly from our Taishoya tofu factory.The multi-course meals change monthly, and uses fresh seasonal ingredients.

While keeping a steady warm hospitable environment, Taishoya hotel holds onto old valuable traditions, and also strives to create new styles and attractions for guests to enjoy.

The bath and the food were wonderful and it was a good stay. Every employee was very attentive and impressed with the polite customer service. It was an inn that was recommended by an acquaintance, but it was more than expected. This time it was a family stay, but next time I would like to invite my parents to stay. Thank you very much.

The trip this time was truly satisfactory. My father used the wheelchair. There were several steps of stairs, three of men gently holding them together with the wheelchair I really appreciate it. Thank you for giving us the words of your concern that "the making of the hotel is in this way ..." to us that we were forced to take for granted and thankfully. Even those in charge of the room were really comfortable and they responded quickly anything, and all the family members had a good time. Also, thank you for having a nice cup for my son's birthday celebration. My son who came back to Tokyo had taken home immediately. I think that I will use it carefully in my memory. Everyone at the Taisho store, thank you very much for the fun two days.

Read more 温泉とTさん監修(料理長からは退かれたようですが)の料理を食べるのが楽しみで椎葉山荘含めてよくお邪魔しております。 はやりのデザイナー旅館、露天風呂付などを謳った宿ではありませんが、古き佳き伝統的な大型旅館のスタイルを続けておられ、昭和に戻った感じがして暖かい懐かしい気分になります。今回はあえて気になった点を書かせていただきます。 ・お料理:一見するとよくある正統な懐石料理のようにみえるけれども、食べるとどこよりも納得の味がする、というのが大正屋さんの料理と勝手に思っていますが、今回は味については少し残念でした。夕食(松)では、お刺身とお肉はおいしかったですが、その他の手が加えられている料理にいつもの冴を感じませんでした。ちょっとの違いですが、個人的には大きな違いと感じました。また、お肉の固形燃料が小さくてすべての肉を焼くことができず、家族みんな追加燃料が必要でした。半分焼いたところで、すぐに残りを焼き始めましたがほぼ生の状態。肉の量に燃料が合っていないともいます。試されたら分かると思います。 ・Wi-Fiは認識はされますが、ネットにはほとんど繋がりません。混み合っているようです。少なくとも特室くらいは個別に機器を置いてもいいのではと思います。 いろいろ書きましたが、最も頻繁に訪れている旅館のひとつです。応援しております。

I am looking forward to eating cuisine of hot springs and T's supervision (which seems to have been withdrawn from the chef) as well as shiba leaves and shrines. Although it is not an apartment that says a fashionable designer ryokan, with an outdoor bath, etc, it keeps the style of a traditional large ryokan old style, it makes me feel warm and nostalgic feeling back to Showa era. I will write down the points I dared to care about this time. · Cooking: Although it seems like a familiar orthodox kaiseki dish at first sight, though I think that it tastes more convincing than anywhere, when eating it is a Taisho shop's cooking and selfishness, but this time about taste It was a little disappointing. At dinner (pine), sashimi and meat were delicious, but I did not feel the usual skill in the dishes with other hands added. Although it is a bit different, I personally felt it was a big difference. Also, the meat's solid fuel was too small to burn all the meat, all the family needed additional fuel. Where half-baked, I immediately baked the rest, but it was almost raw condition. There are fuels not matching the amount of meat. I think that you will understand it when tried. · Although Wi-Fi is recognized, it is hardly connected to the net. It seems to be crowded. I think that it is okay to put the equipment individually at least for the special rooms. I wrote a lot, but it is one of the most frequented inns. I support you.
