高志の宿 高島屋
Koshi-no-yado Takashimaya



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.

お風呂が壊れていたのが残念でした。壊れていない方の露天風呂も入れませんでした。 かわりのサービスをしていただいたのでよかったですが…。 ご飯がとてもとても美味しかったです!

It was a pity that the bath was broken. I did not enter the open-air bath of the person who is not broken. I'm glad I did the alternative service .... The rice was very delicious!

Read more 何と言っても夜の懐石料理が最高でした。 板前さんのプロとしての腕の冴えを見せていただきました。先付、お刺身、お椀、ノドグロの焼き物、海老真丈の天ぷら、御飯すべてにわたって繊細で行き届いた素材の組み合わせが光っていました。新潟の新鮮な海の幸、山の幸がふんだんに取り入りられ絶妙の調和の中に分量も適切でとても満足しました。 歴史と伝統を誇る高志の宿高島屋さんの灯を消さないよう女将さん、お嬢さんをはじめスタッフの皆さんがよいおもてなしをしてくださいました。 ボイラーが故障の影響で大浴場が交代制になりましたが、全然問題ではありませんでした。 欲を言えば部屋のお湯の出が悪かった(これもボイラーのせいでしょう)ことと加湿器を常備されたら良いのではないかと思いました。 会員になって料理の会に参加したいと思っています。 何度でも行きたい宿です。

Kaiseki food of the night was the best after all. I was able to show you how Ikegami's professional armed. The combination of delicate and attentive materials was shining all over the pre-painted, sashimi, chopsticks, grilled Nodogro, tempura of the prawn, and all the rice. Fresh seafood and mountain seafood from Niigata were abundantly introduced, and the amount was also very well satisfied with the exquisite harmony. The lady general, the grandmother, and all the staff gave good hospitality so as not to turn off the lights of Takashishiya Takashishiya proud of history and tradition. The public baths were replaced due to the failure of the boiler, but this was not a problem at all. In terms of greed I thought that it would be good if the hot water in the room went out badly (this would also be due to the boiler) and the humidifier would be always on hand. I would like to become a member and join the cooking party. I would like to go again and again.
