On the border of Kanto and Niigata is the satoyama nuzzled into the Mikuni mountain range: Sarugakyo Hot Spring. In the stone wall built by piling up boulders, both white plaster and nature are built into this Sukiya-style residence. This is an inn with a mere 13 rooms and the building itself is filled with an atmosphere of healing.

In Shojuen, there is an anecdote passed down about "zashiki warashi". The Yahata that was enshrined after being revealed by a zashiki warashi that changed its form is still enshrined with great care at Shojuen where it brings good fortune to those who visit.

In a single-story building, all guest rooms are prepared with a floor table. The natural rush tatami is soft and easy to comfortably relax on.

Meals are dishes that reflect the hospitality of Shojuen. One may enjoy the original taste of dishes that use plenty of local ingredients from Gunma Prefecture.

The baths contain spring water that has the exact translucency of lotion and a rich, soft, gentle effect. One can heal the days wear on the body and spirit wrapped in the light calm with gentleness and consideration. It is something you can feel for yourself once your skin is wet.

Sarugakyo Hot Springs Shojuen is where hospitality is taken seriously. We hope you spend a blissful moment here with someone important to you.

Read more 先日はお世話になりありがとうございました。 入館前の検温やなるべくお部屋へ入らない配慮等、コロナ対策もしっかりされていて、安心できるお宿でした。 フロント後ろの方に備品等を消毒するスペースを設けられていらっしゃる所を拝見し、管理がしっかりされていると感じました。 食事についても、特別にご配慮いただきありがとうございました。 味付けや見た目等、どれもとても美しく、とっても美味しかったです!! ただ、私達は普段から良く食べる家族なため、量と品数がもう少し欲しかったなぁ…とこの場を借りて我儘をお伝えしてみます。 館自体は古いですが、お掃除が行き届いており、これまで館を大事にされてきたのが伝わるため、透き通った空気感と良い雰囲気を感じました。 田舎のおばあちゃんと過ごした”夏休み”を思い出すような、気を張らずにのんびりできるお宿です。 1週間くらい泊まって畳の上でゴロゴロしていたいと思いました。

Thank you for taking care of me the other day. Corona measures such as temperature measurement before entering the building and consideration to avoid entering the room as much as possible were made, and it was a safe inn. I saw a place behind the front desk where there was a space for disinfecting equipment, etc., and I felt that it was well managed. Thank you for your special consideration regarding food. Everything was very beautiful, such as seasoning and appearance, and it was very delicious! !! However, since we are a family that usually eats well, we wanted a little more quantity and number of items... I will take this opportunity to tell myself. The building itself is old, but it is well-cleaned, and it conveys that the building has been cherished so far, so I felt a clear air and a good atmosphere. It's an inn where you can relax and be reminded of "summer vacation" spent with a grandma in the countryside. I wanted to stay for about a week and crawl on a tatami mat.

Indoor bath/Open-air bath
We have created a stone open-air bath created with boulders from Mt. Omine and pit together by the inn's personnel. Different from man-made baths, this is a popular bath where you can enjoy the hot spring.

Private bath: Asahi
We use natural Hiba materials. This is a bath that receives the sun's blessings. This bath was built with that image in mind.

Private bath: Yuhi
With the red western sun at this bath, the surrounding also changes when night falls. This stone and tatami bath was created with that image in mind. This is a Japan-made unit bath that functionally combines a wash basin and bath beautifully.

*If the private bath is free, it is available to use. It is not reservation based. There is not wash area (shower).
