香雲館 Kounkan

Kounkan / Gunma Shibukawa・Ikaho 10


Developed alongside 365 stone steps on a steep slope in the middle of the town, "Ikaho hot spring" is one of the most well-known hot spring spots in the Kanto area, well-known for the “Golden hot water.” 

Located in the town is Kouunkan. It has ten privileged guest rooms with en-suit outdoor spa. Respecting the co-existence of old and new, Kouunkan offers you its own original hospitality you won’t see in any other ryokan.

The beautiful structure of the building created by the ancient Japanese masters excites you as well as gives you time to be calm and relaxed.

Walk through the corridors made of cypress, alongside the thick prop that is nearly 1m in diameter. Then you will reach to the Golden Hot Water. Smell the scent of ancient Japanese in the breeze.

Our specialities are "season, taste, and dishes." Elaborated Japanese sake and cuisine will make your day. The menu of Kaiseki cuisine changes each season. Enjoy local beef and fresh fish directly from the fish tank. The master chef uses carefully chosen ingredients to create the best seasonal cuisine.

Kouunkan is the place your 5 senses get awaken. Our hospitality is to let you feel your senses with the breath of fresh air.

I was able to spend my time in a very beautiful room. I was able to enjoy the proper amount without having too many meals. I wanted to go again. Even after checkout, they sent me to the bottom of the stone steps and had a great day.

Read more 客室数が少なく静かであったため、ゆったりと過ごせました。 部屋はもちろん脱衣所、大浴場も清潔感があり、清掃が徹底されているなという印象を持ちました。大浴場は大きくはないですが、そもそも館内で他の部屋に泊まっている方と会うことがほとんどないため、貸切状態でした。 また、食事も非常に美味しく、量も丁度よかったため大満足でした。従業員の方々の対応も非常に丁寧で、サービスが隅々まで行き届いており、特別な時間を過ごすことができました。 伊香保に行くという方には是非おすすめしたい旅館です。また利用させていただこうと思います。

Because there were few guest rooms and was quiet, we were able to spend relaxedly. There was a sense of cleanliness in the dressing room and the public bath as well as the room, and I had the impression that it was thoroughly cleaned. The public bath is not big, but it was a chartered state because it rarely met people who stayed in other rooms in the hall. Also, the food was very tasty and the amount was just right so I was very satisfied. The response of the employees was very polite, the service was perfect everywhere, and we had a special time. If you are going to Ikaho, you should definitely recommend this ryokan. I would like to use it again.
