四万たむら Shima Tamura

casual Ryokan/Inn Go To トラベル対象
Shima Tamura / Gunma Shima・Azuma・Kawarayu 188


Shima Tamura's history goes all the way back to the Muromachi period. 
This inn has stood by for hundreds of years alongside the famous hot spring that has continued to flow. 

In the past this long-established inn was the inn of choice for famous people
 such as Kotaro Takamura (Japanese poet), Mokichi Saito, (Japanese poet), and Yugure Maeda (Japanese author). 

It has long been told that the Shima Onsen can cure ailments and many have come over the years to seek healing. It is said that the folks who came together spent their time harmoniously, with each other and with nature. It is in such a place that Shima Tamura sits and we are proud to continue the tradition of delivering the omotenashi hospitality of the healing hot springs. 

And it is at Shima Tamura that one is able to experience what has been named the most authentic onsen in the nation. Everyday 1600 liters of fresh spring water are brought in through 7 fountainheads to provide our guests with the ultimate onsen experience. 

From the large windows in the guests rooms, you can gaze out at the beautiful mountains. The Japanese style rooms provide a perfect atmosphere to relax in. 

Our authentic kaiseki style cuisine will be a feast for your eyes as well as your mouth. The menu changes on a monthly basis and sets you on a journey of seasonal flavors. 

Come join us at Shima Tamura where you can experience the history of Gunma, frolic with the surrounding nature, and be treated with warm omotenashi hospitality.

The food was delicious and delicious. When I was greeted, he measured my enthusiasm, and the woman at that time said, "Ah!" I'm worried about what that means "Ah!" When I left the car, the wonderful grandfather bowed my head deeply and I felt very happy to leave the inn. Also, I made a reservation.

Read more 旅館のアンケートにも大まかには書かせていただきました、、、 コロナウイルスの蔓延でキャンセルも考えたのですが、宿泊日が結婚記念10年目の日という事もあり、十分注意しての決行をし、当旅館を初めて利用させていただきました。 全体的には高評価としましたが、高評価は部屋と温泉に関してだけで、他は価格に対して考えると低評価です! ①飲泉が止まっていて飲めませんでした。併せて温泉卵も止まっていて作れませんでした。 ②夕食のメインとしていた国産和牛の鍋をすき焼き風に食べるという事で卵をお願いしましたが、火を付けてもう食べ頃になっても卵は来ず、ご飯を持ってきた時も卵の事は忘れていたようで、鍋の方はもう煮詰まってしまいました。肉も硬くなってしまい、卵を待たずに食べてしまえばまだおいしくいただけたかも知れません。 結局、上州牛は道の駅で売っていたので購入し、家で焼肉にして食べました。すごく美味かったです(笑) ③夕食の最後のデザートの味が個人的には(少なくとも私達夫婦)合いませんでした。抹茶カスタードクリームが苦かったです。 ネットで調べて今回予約させていただきましたが、①の内容は現在は休止中と載せる事はできると思います。最初から休止してるとわかっていたらキャンセルしてたかも知れません。 ②に関しては人的ミスですが、他のサービスは良くしてくれただけに残念です。 ③に関しては個人差があるので、あくまで私達夫婦の意見です。 ①②は今回この旅館を選んだ大きな理由でしたので、残念です。

I roughly wrote the questionnaire for the inn ... I thought about canceling due to the spread of the coronavirus, but since the accommodation date was the 10th anniversary of the wedding anniversary, I made a careful decision and used this inn for the first time. Overall, we gave it a high rating, but the high ratings are only for rooms and hot springs, and the others are low ratings considering the price! ① I couldn't drink because the fountain was stopped. At the same time, I couldn't make the hot spring egg because it was stopped. ② I asked for eggs because I would eat the domestic wagyu pot that was the main part of dinner in a sukiyaki style, but the eggs do not come even when it is set on fire and it is about the time to eat, and when I bring rice Seems to have forgotten, and the pot has already boiled down. The meat became hard, and it might have been delicious if I ate it without waiting for the egg. After all, I bought Joshu beef at a roadside station, so I bought it and broiled it at home and ate it. It was delicious (laugh) ③ The taste of the last dessert of dinner did not match personally (at least our couple). Matcha custard cream was bitter. I searched online and made a reservation this time, but I think that the contents of ① can be posted as being currently inactive. If you knew that you were sleeping from the beginning, you might have canceled it. Regarding (2), it is a human error, but I'm sorry that it has improved other services. Regarding (3), there are individual differences, so this is the opinion of our couple. (1) and (2) were unfortunate because they were the main reasons for choosing this inn this time.
