Kamesei Ryokan
Traditional Ryokan inn featuring warm wood construction, gardens throughout, onsen hot spring bath, gourmet meals; in Onsen Town Togura Kamiyamada, centrally located to Nagano's best. Your experience starts at our spacious lobby that offers views of the koi pond and central garden as well as a comfortable space to relax next to the wood burning stove. Then we lead you to your guestroom, perhaps across the watari-roka passageway by the many tsubo-niwa pocket gardens to one of the detached rooms with a private garden. Or up the stairs to one of the 2nd floor rooms that provide views of the pine tree covered hills surrounding the Chikuma River valley. Your onsen ryokan experience here at Kamesei continues with the hot spring mineral baths. Our baths feature 100% natural onsen water flowing 24 hours a day. Both the ladies and the mens baths have rotenburo outdoor baths. One is made of fragrant yellow cedar, the other of river rock in an open air garden setting where you can bathe in the starlight as you soak in the onsen. Once you have relaxed in your guest room and soothed your body in the onsen baths, it is time to nourish your body with our chef's meals. When you stay at a Japanese ryokan, meals are an important part of the overall experience. Our kaiseki-style dinner features local, seasonal ingredients and the breakfast is a full ryokan traditional breakfast.
