Ryokan/Inn Go To トラベル対象
Ryokan Sakaya / Nagano Nozawa・Kijimadaira・Akiyamago 31


Nozawa hot spring is beloved by many people because of its lasting positive effects on skin.
It is an ancient Japanese hot spring area and the only place to acquire 2 stars in the Michelin Green Guide in Nagano. 'Ryokan Sakaya', an ancient inn lasting for 17th generations, stands on the hot spring town where you can enjoy strolling around.

The charm of this hotel is the natural hot spring from the underground source and its rich fragrance and smooth texture known as ‘Water for rejuvenation’.
The traditional Yuya style spa made by Miyadaiku (Japanese specialized carpenters) is surrounding the source.
The place is dim even daytime so you can feel the special warm atmosphere of the hot spring town and can be content with ‘the healing power’ of the pure hot spring.

Some rooms are pure Japanese style with an adjoining room and a sunken kotatsu (table with heater built into the floor) with comfortable beds in a Japanese room. 
Both rooms are spacious and the best quality so you can enjoy the calm atmosphere of a traditional Japanese hotel.

The cuisine at ‘Ryokan Sakaya’ uses local edible plants, mushrooms, and fresh vegetables that are found in nature. This is more fresh than direct farming and you can taste the umami created by the soil. You can fully enjoy the Shinshu’s ‘omotenashi’ with the local sake made from the rich water of Nozawa hot spring.

The supreme hot spring and heart-warming “omotenashi” at ‘Ryokan Sakaya’ will offer you a fantastic trip which everyone dreams of.

毎月源泉かけ流しの温泉宿を見つけては泊りに行っています。 今回は、とてもいい旅行になりました。 特に食事処でお世話をしてくれた女性、我が儘を聞いてくださり ありがとうございました。 また伺いますね(*´˘`*)

Every month I find a hot spring hotel with a sink and go to stay. This time, it was a very good trip. Thank you very much for listening to me, the woman who helped me especially at the restaurant. See you again (* ̆ ̆ `*)

It was a night, but it was very relaxing. "Serene" atmosphere flowing throughout the facility was very comfortable. A wonderfully loving wife was surprised that "every corner of the room was properly cleaned!" The food was really tasty at the local vegetable center. Thank you very much.

I used it in a couple. Kami says, "I was able to relax and was very good." Both dinner and breakfast were received deliciously. Bathrooms also seem to be built with no big differences between men and women, and I felt from the conversation with Kami that there is no problem even without replacement. Although I felt the era somewhat in the large public bath, I think that together with the smell of sulfur, I felt like the atmosphere of old good hot springs was developed. "Very pleasant accommodation" was. There are only two points, there is a request. 1) I wish I had "beer" in the refrigerator in the room, but .... When I saw the situation that the bathroom had only the "water" opened by opening the refrigerator, it was very depressed. Perhaps it would be okay to call the front desk to bring it, but it's time to dinner, so I can also get over it. 2) In the public bath, would you just keep a "face towel" stand alone? Honestly, thinking about the price of a night, I think that it is a very satisfying hotel. I do not know how much the cost of "always toweling in a large public bath" will cost, but I think that it will definitely bring up more than one star. Either way, we will also use it. It was a really nice trip, and it was an inn.
