It was not beyond I've expected but you'll are surely be amazed with hospitality here. Should you require hassle free outstation stop for 2days away from Tokyo, Shima Olsen Kashiwaya Ryokan is your choice to go for. The package comes together with bus transfer which is easily access somewhere near Tokyo Station, in front of 7eleven, don't doubt when it...

We stayed overnight following a recommendation from our son who is currently working in Japan. Kashiwaya Ryokan is situated in a beautiful valley surrounded by maple woodlands so the colours at this time of year are amazing. As soon as we arrived after a 2.5 hour train and bus journey from Tokyo, we had a lovely welcome from the owner....

My wife and I travel to Japan regularly, each trip aiming for a new location and experience. Consistently, though, we've tried various Ryokans for one night in Northern Honshu. Shima Osen Kashiwaya is by far the best we've experienced. The food quality in terms of taste and presentation was excellent (we had dinner and breakfast). The ambiance was simply great...

We booked this location after reading reviews of this Ryokan. We are so glad we made the effort to come up this way. We only stayed one night but part of the adventure was getting here and back! What a fun experience and we have many delightful stories about the trip. But first the Ryokan. We arrived tired at night...

Great staff, great location, the private outdoor onsens are a real plus and a wonderful experience! The food was very good and surprising. Very easy to get there with the bus trip option from Tokyo station. I strongly recommend Kashiwaya Ryokan for a real and unforgettable Japanese experience!

We celebrated my birthday evening at this property. It was everything we had hoped for in a traditional Japanese Ryokan experience. Gracious staff and spacious room. The private onsen was good size, open-air and very pretty with woodland views - a real treat. Dinner was served in our room and was the best meal we ate in Japan.

My Husband and I stayed one night in October 2016 at Kashiwaya Ryokan. I made the booking after researching Ryokans with private Onsen, and this came out as looking by far the best. The trip from Tokyo was roughly two hours with train and bus, but quite easy to find. The Shima Onsen area is very beautiful, snuggled in the...

I visited this place with my wife. My wife is not used to bathing naked with others, so she wanted private baths. She chose this one due to the availability of private baths, great reviews, and affordability. This place did not disappoint! Although there were three private baths (all with different themes) for the entire residency to share, we also...

I scoured the internet to find a traditional Japanese ryokan with private onsen bath attached to the room, and was blown away by Kashiwaya! Beautiful surroundings and hospitality from the staff, food was amazing, and it felt like a complete getaway (even though we only stayed one night). I can't say enough good things about Kashiwaya!!! Fantastic all around. Would...
