My nephew (who lives in Japan) discovered this place accidentally a few years back and apparently he and his friends come here every year. For my first Japan visit which also coincided with my birthday, he booked this place for my birthday. We drove from...More
Shuttle picked us from the train station. Staff were welcoming and multilingual. Rooms were rather old but well kept and cozy. Food at dinner and breakfast was ok (slightly disappointing compared to the high quality food in Tokyo). But those are small details. The main...More
We stayed at this lovely ryokan for only one night during our trip across Japan. But it was a highlight of the journey, for sure! Even though the ryokan is located in a remote mountain area, it is not too hard to get there. From...More
1 hour train ride from tokyo and a 40 minute bus to the Hotel/Onsen (free pickup) brings you to this magic place.
The onsens are powered by natural hot springs and special since you can share with your loved ones at the same time.
Our stay at Takaragawa was exceptional. The price is steep, but we thought that it was completely worth it. You will not find a more gorgeous rotenburo. Especially in the fall! The colors were truly breathtaking. We spent several hours in the outside baths and...More

Everything is explained on their website. You can take the shinkansen from tokyo station to Jomo-kogen. Be sure to send the hotel an e-mail first, they have a free shuttle that can pick you at the station!
Tattoos are OK, they just ask you to be discreet about it. The place is known for being open-minded, as almost every european we saw there had tattoos. And the onsens are accessible during daytime to everyone (at night they... More
Tattoos are OK, they just ask you to be discreet about it. The place is known for being open-minded, as almost every european we saw there had tattoos. And the onsens are accessible during daytime to everyone (at night they are for hotel guest only). Enjoy !

Yes the east is newer but when I looked into the rooms it seemed almost the same. When I stayed there, I made sure to have a shower and payed the extra money. But if you opt for the room without a shower, the shower room is near by. The difference in distance from the two buildings to the actual onsen is about 20 to 30 yards. Very short distance. The building is connected so it wont seem that far at all. As for the view, the view will be of the river. If you stay in the main building, you will be able to see the bridge and the river. If you stay in the East building, you see the river but not the bridge. You shouldn't be able to see the Onsen from the room....its really down the way which will ensure more privacy.
Deep down, pay the extra money for the shower unless you are on a tight tight budget. Otherwise....this is a vacation.... go all out because you can't take that money into the grave with you. Enjoy yourself to the extreme....how often will you be at this onsen in japan? once twice? most likely once so make it perfect.
