Tobira Onsen Myojinkan

An ecological inn at a quasi-national park where you can feel the healing energy from nature.

Inn

The traditional hot spring lodge, opened in 1931, is located in a canyon about 30 minutes away from Matsumoto City. Nestled in the quasi-national park 1,050m above sea level, the inn has been hosting guests for over 90 years in their calming space surrounded by greens. In 2008, it was registered at Relais & Chateaux that allows only inns that have passed their strict screening. It is Kushi Macrobiotics-certified and also by Green Key.

The inn has three baths to let you enjoy nature and hot spring with alkaline water that turns your skin nice and smooth - Setsugetsuka where you can take in the canyon, standing in hot water up to your waste; Kuzan where you can lie down in the hot spring and look up at the sky and mountain; and Hakuryu, a big bath with outdoor hot spring with the mountain nearby.

You can choose a French or Japanese dinner made with plenty of vegetables in season from their own Tobira Farm and local sources. The dinner features Nagano’s traditional fermented food.

The rooms have a great variety from a traditional Japanese style to a western-style with beds. Immerse your body and mind in a sophisticated space with soothing hospitality.
