Great onsen experience ”
This ryokan is just perfect. The owners are great and the little town which is close to nagano is sweet and charming. If you want to experience a good onsen in Japan go for this accommodation.
it was a cozy and warm place. Tyler was prompt to assist and very welcoming. ”
Tyler and his wife were warm and helpful couple. He was prompt to assist and gave us a brief introduction of Nagano and the onsen town. He even made tea for us upon our arrival which made us felt welcome. We especially liked our name tag hung outside our Ryokan room which made the whole experience personalized. He out in effort to make his guests feel welcome.
I was a little worried when I arrived in Chikuma since the place was in the country side but in the end I had a great time. Tyler and his wife were very hands on in running this ryokan. They were very helpful and accommodating. The private onsen was great and very relaxing. I did a walking tour with Tyler together with a TV crew as they were featuring him on their show. The walking tour was simple but I got great insights on the lives/livelihood of people in Chikuma. It also includes a "casual tea ceremony." I had breakfast and dinner in the ryokan. They happy accommodated my request (food restrictions) and prepared a very traditional kaiseki. Highly recommend
A nice, clean and cozy inn to stay in by giving a feeling at home alike. ”
The inn provides a small onsen but its hot spring water is great, and the inn owner and his spouse are friendly and thoughtful towards the guest needs. Highly recommend to those who want a feeling of home.
Tyler and his wife were excellent hosts offer a lot for the non-Japanese speaking traveler. Kamesei Ryokan will be our first choice again if we come back to Chikuma.
Thank you for your stay, and for your kind words. We are grateful you made the effort to get off the beaten path and come to our onsen town Togura-Kamiyamada here in Chikuma City. With having a native English speaker as the owner, it helps make our traditional onsen inn foreigner-friendly. For travelers who want to experience staying at an authentic ryokan but want the comfort of English-speaking staff, then Kamesei is perfect!
I had a very enjoyable time at this Ryokan. The owners were very friendly and was eager to share their love of the town and ryokan with me. They were accommodating and answered any questions I had. The place was nice and clean and they had a relaxing onsen. I would surely stay again if I ever come back to the area.
Thank you for your stay, and for your kind words. We are grateful that you enjoyed our hospitality as well as our inn's onsen baths. Our onsen town, Togura-Kamiyamada, has so much to offer, and we recently started an eco tour program offering walking and cycling tours. Thank you again for your stay, and until next time!
Great Ryokan Experience”
We planned our stay here even though it was out of the way after seeing raving reviews online. Indeed Kamesei Ryokan does not disappoint. Mr Tyler was a great host during our stay. For the first day there we alighted at the wrong station and he came over to pick us despite it being quite far away from the ryokan. And he sent us to the station the next day. There is a private bath which you can book at the counter while checking it. It was the first I've been in an onsen. Now I'm addicted. Only regret I have is not being able to stay for more days. The kiseki dinner was a treat too!
Thank you for coming and enjoying our onsen inn. It took a bit of sleuthing work, but we figured out your arrival station. FYI, the closest station is called Togura on the Shinano Railway Line. By local train, it is 4 stops / 15 min. from Ueda or 25 min. from Nagano, the two closest stops on the Hokuriku Shinkansen. Thank you also for trying our chef's kaiseki-style dinner. We highly recommend it to our guests to fully appreciate their ryokan experience. Our chef's version is quite a creative take on Nagano's mountain cuisine, and features seasonal ingredients. Hopefully some day you can come again.
先日はお越しになっていただいて、有難うございました。上山田の温泉らしいお湯を気に入っていただいて、嬉しいです。美肌の湯とも言われています。 シャワーのご指摘を有難うございます。色んな形を使ってみてきました。それぞれは難しい部分があります。現在のスタイルが一番「出しっぱなし」防ぐので、環境に良いと思われます。馴染んで来たら、使い方が楽ですし。本当に色々な形を使ってみた中で、これが一番最適です。 では、これからも宜しくお願いいたします。 亀清旅館・タイラー
規模の小さな旅館ですが、玄関とロビーが広くて雰囲気があります。 女将さんもアメリカ人の旦那さんもフレンドリーですが、サバサバしているのであまり気を遣わなくてよいのが気持ちよかった。帰りは女将さんが駅まで送ってくれました。 周辺も色々な飲食店があり、フロントでわかりやすいマップもくれます。 お風呂は硫黄の香りが強く、温泉に来た！という気分が存分に味わえます。 おすすめです。
Hanako様、我が小さい宿にお越しになっていただいて、有難うございました。亀清旅館の開放的な雰囲気そして私どものおもてなしを気に入ってくれたようで、うれしいです。上山田温泉のお湯は温泉らしくてよいでしょう。単純硫黄泉でありながらpHが高め(8.6ぐらい)で美肌の湯の効果です。 この戸倉上山田温泉のもう一つの特徴は繁華街です。沢山のこだわっている飲食店がございます。グルメガイドもございます。あと、射的屋さんは3件もございます。 では、これからも宜しくお願いいたします。
Традиционная Япония - очень холодно и дорого”
Останавливались на 2 ночи ради горячих источников и традиционного японского завтрака/ужина. Сам отель находится вдоль дороги - рядом есть несколько ресторанов и магазин, так как в самом отеле все нужно заранее заказывать и недешево. На входе сменили обувь на резиновые тапки и пошли в наш номер на 2 этаж (лифта нет). Температура в отеле почти как на улице (в марте это около 0 градусов), отапливается только комната где спишь и то - я с трудом настроил кондиционер на полную мощность. Хозяева помогали, как могли, несли чемоданы, помогли с прокатом автомобиля, спасибо им за это. Хотелось бы, чтобы они привели в порядок свой онсен (баня на горячем источнике), так как он совсем разваливается, хотя возможно, это у них такие понятия о традиционной Японии.
An enjoyable experience”
The owners are willing to help, ranging from shuttle service to patient travel guidance, from explanation of onsen to room service. All places are very clean as well. I had a wonderful time there.
離輕井澤車站直接轉搭信農鐵道約一小時電車時間 到戶倉車站再轉搭車10min至旅館 一路上因楓葉季景色優美。 旅館古樸很有特色 看得到老闆非常用心經營造景 房間內一塵不染 可以加購餐點(晚餐/早餐) 還有當地的套裝行程。 老闆是外國人，可以英文溝通，提供車站到旅館接駁(需預約)。
Wan-san, 謝謝. Thank you for your stay and for your kind comments. We try to make our inn as convenient as possible for our guests by offering free shuttle service to and from Togura Station (戸倉駅) which is as quick as 45 minutes from Karuizawa 軽井沢. We hope you can come back again some day.
