Kiso Fukushima | Ryokan
In a small valley just outside the town of Kiso-Fukushima, this beautiful ryokan in peaceful surroundings has an excellent onsen and serves superb Japanese food in its atmospheric restaurants.
Guest rooms are traditional Japanese style, with tatami mats and futon beds. There are eight rooms in the ryokan’s new extension, all a good size and some with views over Utaki mountain, and a further eight rooms in the ryokan’s older buildings, which are slightly smaller. All rooms have small en-suite bathrooms.
Eating at the ryokan is a delight, with multi-course, fresh Japanese breakfasts, lunches and dinners served, showcasing local ingredients and traditional recipes. There are two restaurants, both incredibly atmospheric. The smallest has rice paper screens which are pulled back during the day to reveal lovely views of the gardens and courtyard. The larger restaurant has tatami mat flooring and impressive architecture, with old wooden pillars soaring up to a lofty beamed ceiling. It’s like eating in a shogun’s palace!
Before dinner, unwind in the onsen, which has indoor and outdoor hot spring pools. There is also a spacious lounge off the lobby area with a bar, gift shop and gallery, and you can join a nighttime star gazing experience at no extra cost, something guests rate as truly magical.
A perfect ryokan experience, with wonderful food and attentive service, deep in the Nagano countryside.
