著莪の里 ゆめや Yumeya

Yumeya / Niigata Tsubame・Sanjo・Iwamuro・Yahiko 18


"In the spring, cherry blossoms, in the summer the cuckoo. In autumn the moon, and in winter the snow, clear, cold", so wrote Dogen Zenji. So it is at this Shaga-no-Sato Yumeya.

The scent of the plants and the birdsongs change with the seasons. The moon waxes and wanes and the white snow covers those waiting for spring. This is an inn of sukiya architecture where guests can enjoy an experience akin to soaking in nature.

Sliding glass shoji windows, sliding karakami-lined doors, noren curtains, paper lamps, tatami: The simplicity enhances your relaxation.

In terms of relaxation the hot spring is also important. The newly opened Kaminosato Onsen at the site of the 300-year-old Iwamuro hot springs features 100% natural high quality hot spring water.

In the public bath and the open-air bath you can enjoy the landscape changing by each season. In the room's private bath you can also enjoy the herbal bath of the month.

Rice, miso, seafood, and mountain food are carefully selected and prepared for your meals. This inn welcomes you with feasts of Echigo that are simple yet deep.

The beautifully changing nature of the gardens and a silent hospitality. When these two heartfelt welcomes come together, you meet the deep loving form of the seasons of Echigo.

Non-smoking room with outdoor bath "Yokobue"


Washing area was cold because there was no hot spring in the bathtub of the indoor bath, and I could not wash my body unless I warmed it with hot water.

4度リピートさせていただいております。 今回も贅沢でゆったりとした時間を過ごすことができました。 夏バテをしていましたが、夢屋さんのお食事で元気に回復しました。 お風呂もとてもよかったです。 また来たいです。

I will repeat 4 times. I was able to spend a luxurious and relaxing time this time. I was doing summer bathing, but I recovered well with Yumeya's meal. The bath was also very good. I want to come again.

I thought it was a very good hotel overall. Since we were in a room without an open-air bath, we used a large public bath and an open-air bath. It was very quiet with little meeting with other customers. The greenery in the garden calmed down and the raccoon dogs were there and healed them. I thought that there was an elevator because there was an elderly person this time, but I thought it was inevitable because it was on the second floor. As for the meal, the contents and correspondence of dinner were very good. Nakai-san was also kind, so what left me the impression was that the reservation time for the return taxi was wrong, and the landlady was right there. It was not there. If you tell someone else, they came out suddenly. I wanted to say hello about the way home.
