With the leading Japanese mountains of the peaks of the Northern Alps, the fresh air, the rustic humanity and the abundant hot springs, Oku-Hida Spa Village and Shin-Hotaka Spa is a spiritual home interwoven with magnificent nature and the countrified, warm-hearted people bearing the soul of hot springs. Shinzansou is an inn that serves as a base for climbing throughout the four seasons to heal the fatigue of the day of climbers so they will have the energy to fight on the next day. Shinzansou is perfect for people seeking a trip with a majestic scale and people who love deeply peaceful and beautiful nature and hot springs. Shinzansou is nestled among the majestic mother nature of Oku-Hida and is entered across a suspension bridge called "Kajikabashi" that spans Gamada River. This is a location with beautiful scenery throughout the changing four seasons. Take a moment here for a deep breath. Please fully take in the beautiful nature and the hot springs with water flowing directly from the source that is the pride of this inn. Our mixed open-air baths in a place that is separated by one rock from Gamada River has delighted many travelers. Please enjoy these authentic hot springs to your heart's content at a slow and relaxed pace.

While the facilities are a bit above average for a Ryokan, the location in the middle of the forest and the outdoor Onsen (men, women, mixed and private) are the ultimate experience for Onsen. Opened 24h, you can enjoy them all night. Overall highly recommended!

I spent a night here with my boyfriend who is Japanese and a British friend of ours. We had an amazing time. We particularly enjoyed the mixed onsen, it was snowing on the night we arrived and the scenery was magical. We really enjoyed the food too. We had dinner and breakfast there and it was copious, fresh and quite refined. We particularly liked the miso beef which is a local specialty. The ryokan is very comfortable and warm. It is very old school and I felt like in an Edo period drama. Although I live in Japan and have visited many places, the onsen experience surrounded by the mountains on a snowy night has been one of the most beautiful experiences I've had in Japan. I will come back one day for sure !

Away from most of the crowd, this onsen resort matched my criteria: it has an open air bath with a 360- degree view of the snow-capped mountain and river, a mixed-gender bath so you can enjoy the onsen with your partner and most of all- cloth wraps are provided for women going to the mixed onsen which is a rarity. Other onsen resorts will not make it possible for you to enjoy the open air bath with your partner and other guests because of modesty issues but Shinzansou found a way. A private open air bath can also be booked upon check in, in case you want it all to yourself for almost an hour. The kaiseki dinner was fabulous consisting of Hida beef cooked with miso paste on magnolia leaf, fresh grilled fish and veggies sourced from the area. The staff even provided us with free shuttle service going to Shinhotaka ropeway station. It was an unforgettable experience soaking your body deep in 80 degree temperature while surrounded by chilly mountain air at -11 Celsius.

11月15日に新穂高の深山荘に泊めさせていただきました。館内のお風呂に石鹸とシャンプーはあります。露天風呂は5つもあり、2つは貸切、1つは女性専用、2つは男性専用、1つは混浴です。スタッフは親切、お部屋は良い、食事は美味しい・露天風呂は100%新鮮で美しい山の景色に囲まれ最高です。ロープウェイまできれいな川添山道で気楽15分で歩けます。 Shinzansou accommodation with many hot springs is a short 15-minute beautiful walk along the river to the Shin-hodaka Ropeway. Staff are friendly, rooms are comfortable, and the hot springs are my favorite in Japan. Bath robe, large towel, and small towel are provided. The indoor hot springs has a shower area for washing. The 5 outdoor hot springs do not permit soap nearby. The outdoor hot springs are designated as 2 for private reservation (no additional cost), 1 female-only, 2 male-only, and 1 mixed. The hot springs are 100% natural water with continuous flow. The outdoor springs have a mild sulfurous smell and volcanic particles. For the hot springs enthusiast, the springs smell delicious and the quality is perfectly. Meals are delicious Japanese style. Signs with instructions and information are in English so this is an easy place for non-Japanese speakers to stay.

A charming old ryokan that has stood it's time. Fairly basic where amenities are concerned but for the overall ryokan experience, it is a worth a stay especially if you intend to visit the Shin-Hotaka ropeway. The dinner service is nothing spectacular but the food is delicious and more than adequate. Breakfast was similar but if you are not into a purely Japanese breakfast, it can be a little challenging. What makes this ryokan a standout are the different onsens available. The private family ones (free) and outdoor ones are a must visit. They have separated male and female outdoor baths and even a mixed one which for us, turned out be a new and interesting experience. Some of the baths are open to the public for day bathing but house guests enjoy privacy and seclusion after hours. It is a small and lovely Ryokan which works very well when you want to avoid the bus loads of tourists visiting this famous region.
