Spring/mums day get away
This ryokan is really charming. The atmosphere was very tranquil. The room was really nice and well kept. The food was outstanding. The staff was very kind and took so much care with our stay from taking luggage to the room, tour of the differnt floors along escorting us to our room and setting up the beds when we went to dinner. The surrounding area was also stunning. We enjoyed getting to explore the nature and town around the area.

Astounding. Best experience in Japan and tattoo friendly!
This was, with no stretch of the imagination, one of the best things we did in Japan. From the kindness of the staff, to the cleanliness of the property and the baths, to the amazing food, so well worth the trip from Tokyo and I am sad we only stayed one night. Tattoo friendly as well which was hard to find. I searched through #tattoofriendlyonsen on Instagram to find this place and am so glad I did. My partner and I stayed in the Hana room, Japanese futon style bed with private onsen bath. the room was peaceful and tidy, with beautiful tatami mat floors and a great view over the river. We went for the full kaiseki dinner and it did not disappoint. If we had known earlier we might have ordered the extra meat portion, but as-is it was perfectly filling and a wonderful exploration of traditional cuisine. The three private baths are each worth a visit, and they open at 5am. So, if you are also suffering from jetlag like we did, you too can take advantage and greet the sun from the open air baths. It wasn't the worst way to start the morning, I can tell you that. Overall, amazing!

A Nice Place Worth Visiting Again
My friend and I stayed at Kashiwaya Ryokan during our last visit to Japan. The ryokan is situated in a scenic and quiet area surrounded by mountains and rivers. You could either take a walk or ride a bike to navigate the town and the nature. The staff were all very friendly and helpful, and the meals were excellent. The private onsens were definitely a huge plus. We really enjoyed our stay there and always hope to visit it again.

Great time!
It is a wonderful ryokan with lovely onsen. It is great for couples and very romantic. Situated in the mountains of Gunma, you can enjoy the fall foliage and relax in the natural hot spring water. I strongly recommend it!
