積善館 Sekizenkan Ryokan

Sekizenkan Ryokan / Gunma Shima・Azuma・Kawarayu 2


The name of the ryokan comes from one of the phrases of the sacred book of Confucianism.
Sekizenkan which holds a history of more than 300 years since its establishment in the Edo period, has welcomed many writers and artists.

Shima onsen is a place where people gathered to heal since long time ago.
At Sekizenkan, the hot spring which flows from the bottom of the river is drawn into four places and you may enjoy the bath in your own style.

The "Sanso" which inherits the prosperity of the Showa era and "Kashotei" where you encounter the new perspective are buildings where it grant a stay of a blend of the new and the old.

The national tangible asset and "Sanso" which is a legacy of the Gunma prefecture is a place where the elegance of the Momoyama period and the detailed techniques of the artisans shine.
You may enjoy the quiet environment and wonder, or read books of the then master writers. It will lure you to the romance of Showa era no matter how you spend your day.

Kashotei stands on the hill in the interior than the Sanso.
When you look out the window, there will be a young and old pine tree.
The beginning and end of life which circulates along with the passing of the seasons and its glamour and tranquility will teach you that it is a special place.

Dinner which will be served in each building is a kaiseki which you may experience the essence of Japanese cuisine.
At Sanso, it will change seasonally and at Kashotei, is will change monthly.

I had a great time. Thank you very much. The food was well-balanced in terms of appearance, taste, and quantity, and I was satisfied with the contents that I could just eat after drinking. One question was that it was steamed foie gras, but I didn't know how I used foie gras. Because it was a mountain villa, it smelled like mold. I think that the COSPA was good. Overall, it was a very satisfying stay for both food and service along with the experience of staying at Sekizenkan.

アンケートにも書きましたが、歯磨き剤が小さい・T字剃刀が安っぽい 個室の食事処で流れていたBGMが最低。悲しくなる音楽なら必要無し

I wrote in the questionnaire, but the toothpaste is small, and the T-shaped razor is cheap. The lowest BGM was flowing in the private dining room. No need for sad music

Read more 全体的にとても満足で、また機会があれば利用させて頂きたいなと思いました。 良いところをあげるときりがないので… 特に良かった点は、 ・お願いしてないのにも関わらず誕生日のお祝いのためお赤飯を出していただけたのにはとても感動しました。 ・夕食の料理の提供スピードが、とてもよかったです。 ・日本酒飲み比べセットを注文した際にグラスを3種類用意していただき、とても驚きました。 ・帰りの際に玄関を出て写真を撮らせていただいていると、女性スタッフの方が写真を撮って下さり、思い出に残る1枚になりました。 気になった点ですが ・飲み物(お酒)がまだ残っているにも関わらず確認されず下げられてしまったのは残念でした ・予約風呂の時間5分ほど過ぎて受付に伺った際スタッフの方が誰もおらず、呼んでもしばらく誰も出てこなかったので、予約時間前後にはスタッフの方がいらっしゃるか、ベル等あると良いなと思いました ・部屋の網戸が壊れているのか開かず、冊子も汚れていたのは少し残念でした 歴史を感じる建物、スタッフの方々の気配り、素敵なお部屋、お食事人気の宿の理由がとてもよく分かりました。 また機会がありましたら、両親を連れてまた宿泊したいなと思いました。 ありがとうございました。

We thought that we were very satisfied overall and would like to use it again if there is an opportunity. Because there is no time to give good things ... The particularly good point is ・ I was very moved by having red rice for birthday celebration, even though I did not ask for it. ・ The serving speed of dinner was very good. ・ We were very surprised to have 3 kinds of glasses prepared when ordering Japanese sake drink comparison set. ・ When I left the entrance to take a picture on the way back, the female staff took a picture and it became a memorable one. I'm worried about it ・ It was disappointing that it was dropped without being confirmed even though the drink (alcohol) still remained ・ There is no one at the reception desk after about 5 minutes of scheduled bath time, and no one comes out for a while even if you call, so there is a bell, etc. if there is a staff member around the reservation time I thought it was good ・ It was a little disappointing that the booklet was dirty without opening if the screen door of the room was broken The building that feels the history, the staff's attention, the nice rooms, the food very well understood the reason for the popular inn. If I had another chance, I wanted to stay with my parents again. Thank you very much.
