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.

I used it with my wife on the wedding anniversary. As I told you in advance, I had consideration for my wife's food, and also for having a memorial marital meeting, I was very moved with my wife. The room enjoys a beautiful view facing the courtyard, and it was also strangely cool and comfortable. I really liked the quality of the water in the bath, but I hope it would have been more comfortable to clean the ceilings, walls and floors of the bathroom a little more carefully. I will use it again. Thank you in advance.

You were very helpful the other day. First of all, I was surprised at the size of the room. Thank you very much for your kind response to the staff members. The food was very delicious, so I could buy souvenirs, and I could enjoy the taste of the hotel at home. I was able to spend leisurely. Thank you very much.
