Bettei Senjuan is a traditional Japanese inn that can be found in a town located in the Gunma Prefecture called Minakami. It is situated on a stream of a mountain near the Tanigawa river with a quiet surrounding. The area where the inn calmly sits is embraced by trees and sounds flowing waters. Guests who stay here will experience a truly tranquil stay and have time for relaxation.

The rooms of Bettei Senjuan are based on the traditional Japanese design, Western-style, and in some rooms feature the combination of both styles. The ryokan has a total of 18 rooms which cost about 80,000 to 100,000 JPY per night, with each room including an open-air bath and a window where guests can witness the scenery of Tanigawadake and the beauty of the seasons.

Bettei Senjuan has private dining spaces where guests can spend quality time while enjoying their dishes and the beauty of nature. Large windows can also be seen as travelers walk around the area of the inn.

With the location of the ryokan in Tanigawa, one of the special features of Bettei Senjuan is its spring baths. The ryokan has five unique hot spring baths that offer relaxation, skin benefits, and healing.

The location of the inn is accessible by rides coming from Niigata Station and Tokyo Station. Due to COVID-19, guests must take precautionary measures when traveling for their safety.

More relaxed than I can ever remember
We were lucky enough to stay for 2 nights, 25 and 26/12 - it was a wonderful experience from beginning to end. The building is amazing architecture and the outlook is the river and mountains in the distance, the hotel is set in a quiet area about 5 minutes from the small township, so very private. Attention to detail is the norm here; the service is caring and exceptional. We had a Japanese style room with outdoor onsen (think all the rooms have their own onsen) - everything was very clean, plenty of towels, drinking water on hand, snacks in the room after dinner and during the day. We're a difficult group to accommodate food wise, I often go to bed hungry in Japan because I don't like fish/seafood or red meat. Bettei Senjuan sent us several emails checking on this and that...and the 3 of us thoroughly enjoyed our meals - each dining space is private, it's a real feast, course after course, so much care is taken with each dish. (and some stunning porcelain) We had the irori in the centre, we were seated around it on cushions with a well for our legs - very comfortable. The wine list is also, very good too, and well priced. We were all so relaxed...there are some nice walks too, in the grounds or into the small town of Minakami. We also loved the library in the grounds, relaxing chairs, open fire and help yourself to tea or coffee. Beautiful... Do yourself a favour - stay for at least 2 nights, it's 2.5 hours from Tokyo with one change of train, the complimentary pick up from Minakami station was convenient too. The hotel contacted us and warned us about delays on one train line and suggested we take another line, we did, and it worked out well. (that's amazing service) No snow, except high up on the mountains. We'll visit again next year... Negatives: none really, but note - if you want lunch, you have to order it just after breakfast or you'll need to head into town, it's only 5 or so minutes away so no big deal. If you find futons hard on the back, I think you can opt for a western room. The yakata is a challenge initially, but you get used to it very quickly, nice to just wander about in your yakata without a care in the world..

Service makes Bettei Senjuan exceptional
We've stayed in many ryokans all over Japan so speaking from experience. Received a call from the ryokan staff informing us that due to rain, the roads were slippery and to drive carefully. Not the easiest place to find; got a little lost on the way to. Once there though, the service staff made us feel comfortable with welcome drinks and not hurrying us to dinner even though we arrived close to the last seating time for dinner. Kaiseki dinner was in a private room; food was good and more than adequate although we've had better. They incorporate some western element into a few japanese dishes. Room faces a rushing river, and comes with an outdoor bath. We stayed 2 nights and each dinner and breakfast had different dishes. Breakfast was lavish, they do make an effort to please.The serving staff were always friendly and our child's juices for all the meals were complimentary. They also prepared midnight snacks - rice cakes, fruits, onigiri in our room (as if we could stuff ourselves again and wake up for breakfast to eat again?!) Upon check-out, they served us a choice of drinks again and gave us free bottled water for our journey. Usually in another ryokan, we'd be hurried off after checking out, this place wins for not packing their guests off hastily. Bettei is not cheap, the town of Minakami is a ghost town at this time of year but the experience they offer makes it worthwhile to go out of the way. Well deserving of the Relais & Chateaux membership.

Senjuan is a most in the Japanese Alps
We were surprised to find a Relais and Chateaux property in Japan. The rooms have beautiful views of the surrounding mountain and stream. Each room also has a its own outdoor, private onsen bath. Very special property.

Holiday
It was a wonderful experience at the hotel. Although it was full house during the periodof stay, we feel peaceful and quiet everywhere in the hotel. The private hot spring is big enough to accommodate could and the view is fantastic.

Something special
Magical Place! Excellent Service and good Japanese Food! This is a place where I like to stay for a long time and sure I will be back one time in summer.The only thing is to find the place by car is a little bit tricky but the rest is very recommendable.
