高志の宿 高島屋 Koshi-no-yado Takashimaya

Ryokan/Inn Go To トラベル対象
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.

The food was very good and the staff at the inn were very responsive and impressed. It was a good stay, especially for those who gave me a beauty treatment salon and room guidance. Also, I was happy to see the crisp landlady's own breakfast and seeing off on her way home. Also, when I visit Tsubame, I would definitely like to come back again.

Read more 一泊でしたが、とても快適に過ごさせていただきました。 料理がとても素晴らしい旅館として新潟の友人から評判を聞いていましたが、その名の通りでした。 もしリクエストをさせて頂くなら、部屋の露天風呂の温度が高くなればいいかな、と思います。 この季節37〜39度は風呂上がりが寒くなってきました。(その分長湯はできますけどね!) また利用させていただきたいです。

It was one night, but it was very comfortable. I heard from a friend in Niigata that the inn has a very good food, and it was just as the name suggests. If you make a request, I think it would be nice if the temperature of the open-air bath in the room could be raised. It's getting colder after taking a bath at 37-39 degrees this season. (Although you can have a long bath for that amount!) I would like to use it again.
