高志の宿 高島屋 Koshi-no-yado Takashimaya

Koshi-no-yado Takashimaya / Niigata Tsubame・Sanjo・Iwamuro・Yahiko 2


This Japanese Ryokan has been nestled in the Iwamuro Onsen-Spa for more than 260 years since the Edo-period watched over the beauty of four seasons.  

The lobby building was originally the village chief’s mansion during the Edo-period which has been registered as one of the Tangible Cultural Properties by the Japanese Government. 

The Iwamuro Onsen-Spa has been popular for many years because of its effective skin care treatment. It celebrated the 300th year anniversary since opening as a spa in 2013.

You can enjoy this hot spring treatment in several public baths choosing from one made of Japanese cypress, a Goemonburo (cast-iron bath), or a footbath with a stunning view of a beautiful bamboo garden.  

The main building has been loved by many celebrities as a restful hiding place. There are 20 rooms: each has a unique elegance with a stylish beauty of wooden construction and traditional Japanese taste.

Traditional Japanese food at Takashimaya is created with respect for the beauty of nature, presented with delicate technique and elegance. “The restaurant with lodging” is the perfect way to describe such intricate hospitality.  

The garden of bamboo woods imparts a different expression in each of four seasons. The Iwamuro Onsen-Spa has been comforting all visitors since the Edo-period. This extraordinary Japanese space with sincere hospitality has a peaceful calm that creates an almost nostalgic atmosphere. 

This authentic Japanese ryokan is defined by an atmosphere of calm.

Read more 主人のルーツを辿る旅で3連泊させていただき、中1日の夜のみ外食しましたが、朝も晩も食事が美しく、味付けがほど良く、出汁が本当に美味しかったです。 要望といえば…女将さんに話しかけた時に、立ち止まる事なく返答があったのが寂しかったです。 歴史のあるお宿ですが、とても小綺麗にしているなぁと感じですごせました。けど、脱衣所の髪の毛や水しぶきも、他が綺麗なだけに目立ってしまいました。トイレ等の蛇口その物の掃除も忘れずにするとよいです。 また、地元で行われている催しや行事をもっと宣伝してくれると嬉しいです。 フロントの方々、配膳の方々、庭のお掃除の方、裏方さんの対応は素朴で素敵でした。

I stayed 3 nights on a trip that followed my husband's roots, and only ate out on the night of the middle of the day. Speaking of requests ... When I talked to the landlady, I was lonely that he responded without stopping. Although it is an inn with a history, I was able to feel that it was very clean. However, the hair and splashes at the dressing room were conspicuous as the others were beautiful. Don't forget to clean the faucets such as toilets. I would also be happy to promote more local events and events. The front desk, the people in the restaurant, the garden cleaner, and the back side were simple and nice.

I had a very good time. Thank you very much. The food was very delicious both morning and evening and was very satisfying. Since the bath is a historical inn, it was old but there was a taste. I noticed after checking out, I forgot the towel to wash my body. I want you to send it if it is still stored.
