- - KANAGUYA (Rekishi no yado KANAGUYA)
KANAGUYA, is an historical 250+ yr old ryokan sits on a narrow street dating
back to the Edo period, in Shibu Onsen, Nagano.
There are a total of 9 baths in the Inn; 5 which are private (you can enter
and lock the door and have it all to yourself) and 4 that are communal
baths: one each for men and women-inside and 2 outdoor communal baths (“rotenburo”).
Kanaguya’s hot spring water comes from 4 different sources of hot springs
in the mountains surrounding the inn.
Outside along the narrow street are 9 more communal hot spring baths to
explore. Just don your yukata (summer kimono) and geta (Japanese sandals),
take the key from your room and the little towel (tenegui) you are provided
from Kanaguya for the baths, and you’ll be ready to explore the historical
surroundings and take in the wonderfully charming atmosphere of Shibu Onsen!
