著莪の里 ゆめや

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.

The food and service attitude were wonderful, and we had a relaxing time. Above all it is disappointing that the hot water of the public bath and the open-air bath was not clean. We had rice ball with point that there were a lot of feather insects a little and favor again, but, at the time of dinner, it was disappointing that we could not cope while saying that pickles did not do well. The room bath and the arrangement of the garden and rooms were also very good.

Read more 這是我住過最貴的日式旅館(兩晚收了廿三萬多日圓),但很失望,它所提供的完全與價格不相稱。在說明如何不相稱之前,我不得不稱讚它的房間裝修得很美,很寬敞,而且戶外景色一流,尤其在下雪時。私人露天浴缸(沒錯,是浴缸,金屬的,不是一般木質浴池)很好,是沒有直角,人敞在那個角度也可以,也夠大,足夠兩人一起浸泡。接下來,我會詳述有關與價格不相稱的部分: 1、兩晩晚餐皆不達標準,份量少,菜式毫無新鮮感(我指設計方面),味道還可以,但很多時同一食材不斷重複使用在其他菜式;一點都不豪華,很普通中價餐廳的出品,第一晚有幾片生魚片,第二晚完全不見(除了河豚兩晚都有),兩人要分享半隻蟹,是否有病?其他食材都是普普通通,絕非貴價材料;份量少,即使我加錢要九道菜(一般是七道)也是剛剛好夠飽(我和太太本身食量已經比夠細)。 2、早餐不要選日式,你會以為是一般商務旅館的早餐。(不過西式也好不了多少) 3、說好的無料迎送服務呢?不知是Relux的資料有誤還是旅館誤導,我在前往旅館前一個星期前左右透過Relux預約接送車(岩室站),在入住當天在火車站看到是一輛計程車,到了旅館下車後,我以為旅館已付費便往旅館走,怎料司機追上來要求付費,場面極其尷尬。之後我在LINE也問Relux客服迎送服務是否要付費,他們再次確認是免費的。無論如何,兩天後我們預約的車也是要自付費用的,我也不想和旅館理論,反正單程也只是一千六百多日圓。只是沒想到,付了二十三萬多日圓會換來這層次的服務。 4、房間內冰箱的飲料也是要付費的,而且價格高昂。我想說,我晚餐也點了幾回日本酒,我是心甘情願的,即使身在其他旅館也是一樣。但是我住過很多高級日式旅館,通常房內的飲品小食是免費的。這不是錢的問題,而是感覺是否良好的問題。 5、大毛巾只得兩條,難道每次浸泡後都要打去前台索取新毛巾? 我的感想:我想不通為何Relux和網友們會給這旅館那麼高的評價,你們會衡量性價比嗎? 我對旅館的建議:你們檢討下是否定位錯了。收費是高級旅館,提供的是什麼?

This is the most expensive Japanese-style hotel I have ever stayed in (more than 30,000 yen in two nights), but I am very disappointed that the price it provides is not commensurate with the price. Before explaining how it didn't match, I had to praise its room for a beautifully decorated, spacious, and superb outdoor setting, especially when it was snowing. Private open-air bathtub (yes, it is a bathtub, metal, not a general wooden bath) is very good, there is no right angle, people can open at that angle can also be large enough for two people to soak together. Next, I will detail the parts that are not commensurate with the price: 1. The two dinners are not up to standard, the amount is small, the dishes are not fresh (I mean design), the taste is OK, but many times the same ingredients It is constantly used in other dishes; it is not luxurious at all, it is produced in a normal medium-priced restaurant. There are a few sashimi on the first night, and the second night is completely gone (except for the pufferfish for two nights). The two share half. Only crab, is it sick? Other ingredients are ordinary, not expensive materials; the amount is small, even if I add money to nine dishes (usually seven) is just enough (the wife and I have enough food). 2, do not choose Japanese style breakfast, you will think it is a breakfast in a general business hotel. (However, the Western style is not much better.) 3. Say good and welcome the service? I don't know if Relux's information is wrong or the hotel is misleading. I booked a shuttle bus (Rock Station) through Relux about a week before I went to the hotel. I saw a taxi at the train station on the day of check-in. After I got off at the hotel, I thought The hotel has paid for the hotel and it is very embarrassing for the driver to catch up and ask for payment. After that, I also asked Relux customer service to pay for the service at LINE. They confirmed that it was free. In any case, the car we booked in two days is also self-paying, and I don't want to be in hotel theory. Anyway, the one-way trip is just over 1,600 yen. I just didn't expect that more than 230,000 yen would be paid for this level of service. 4, the refrigerator in the room also has to pay for drinks, and the price is high. I want to say that I have ordered a few Japanese sake for dinner. I am willing, even in other hotels. But I have lived in many high-end ryokans, and the drinks in the room are usually free. This is not a question of money, but a question of whether it feels good. 5, the big towel only has two, do you have to go to the front desk to get a new towel after each soak? My thoughts: I can't figure out why Relux and netizens will give such a high rating to the hotel. Will you measure the price/performance ratio? My advice to the hotel: Do you have a wrong positioning under review? The charge is a high-class hotel. What is it offered?
