文化財の宿 新井旅館 Arai Ryokan

Arai Ryokan / Shizuoka Nakaizu 20


Arai Ryokan began operations during the Meiji era. This Ryokan is located in the Shuzenji hot spring and is the oldest hot spring in the Izu Peninsula and has also been selected as one of the best 100 hot springs in Japan.

Because the third generation owner of this Ryokan got along well with many writers and artists, many creative Japanese arts and writings were born in the Ryokan.
The Japanese garden, loved by many famous artists and selected by Michelin, tells us the about the turning of the seasons.

The building itself is registered as a cultural heritage property. It gives you a nostalgic feeling as you are transported back in Taisho period.

“Tenpyo Bath” is made of 1000 year old Taiwanese cypress.
The quality of water is guaranteed and you can enjoy the playful interior that was created by a master carpenter – The pillars, ceiling, and glass wall will help see beautiful carps in a pond next to the bath. The hot spring will relax your body and mind.

Sitting at the terrace of the building and feeling the breeze while listening to the sound of the running waters of the Katsura river, you can relax in the bamboo garden, read a book, or do nothing at all. Just unwind in the tranquil moment.

Although it was 2 days and 1 night, it was a very satisfying trip. The little son (3 years old) was very happy with the atmosphere and facilities of the ryokan and was having a good time. Thank you very much. I hope to use it again soon.

Overall we are very satisfied. The tangible cultural property inn was very quaint and wonderful everywhere. We were able to stay in the flower ridge, and the view from the room was also nice. The food was delicious too. There are two points I was interested in. One point may be that they were busy in the morning, but it was a pity that employees did not greet each other in the hallway. Another point is that the hot water in the private bath was not very clean. The free one was more beautiful ... But if you have the opportunity, you will want to stay again!

Thank you for taking the night out with breakfast. Thank you for being willing to respond to the last change. First of all, the ryokan itself was a really wonderful structure, and the view from the room and the bath were all satisfied comfortably. The breakfast in the room was very good and Nakai's service was kind and I could spend it very comfortably. I would like to ask you about the autumn leaves season someday.

Enjoy the Shuzenji hot spring, with its alkalinity and its colorless clear water that is said to be beneficial for your skin. You can feel its effect since the water comes from the fountain’s source.

◆Tenpyo Public Bath: 
The Tenpyo Bath is made from 1000 year old Taiwanese cypress trees and was completed in 1934. This is a masterpiece in many aspects: style, material and technique. 

◆Ayame Bath: Shaped like an Iris, you can enjoy watching fish swim around you while you take a bath.
