Accommodation Types

At Tamagawa Hot Spring with the concept of being “the home of therapeutic bathing (toji)” we aim to provide lodgings that you can use with peace of mind that are focused on guests having long stays for therapeutic bathing (toji).

Accommodations at Tamagawa Hot Spring are largely separated into two types.

Ryokan Section

The price for these accommodations includes the room fee and meals.
There are two meals provided for each night that you stay; a cafe´ style evening meal and buffet style breakfast the following day. Make yourself at home and enjoy this basic accommodation style.

  • Western Rooms

    These rooms have beds that don’t put much strain on people’s legs and backs.
    The rooms are also fitted with a TV, refrigerator and toilet.

Self-Catering Section

※The self-catering building is open for business from 20th April to 20th November.
This style of accommodation is basically “room only”.
Meals are not included in the price so guests need to pay extra charges for meals or to cook their own meals. There’s a kitchen in the self-catering building so guests can cook their own meals. There’s a microwave and gas cooker available for use but guests will need to bring food and utensils with them. You can enjoy a free choice of meals as you can make food that you enjoy.
