Classic Suite

Using an old residence from Muikamachi town in Minami Uonuma City was the base for this guest room. It faces the east so conducts great views over the main gardens and up to Mount Sakado.


These rooms capture the unique sense of a traditional folk dwelling. The sturdy beams and pillars that are necessary to protect from the long years of heavy winter snow are much in evidence and an integral part of buildings in Snow Country. They offer a relaxing space where you can appreciate the strength and warmth of the wood.

Type A

Rebuilt from a headman's residence from the former Shiozawa town (now part of Minami Uonuma City) these are traditional Japanese style guest rooms. They offer plenty of space being over 50㎡, and have sunken kotatsu tables and chairs with views over the main gardens. For those that wish, it is possible to have dinner served in the room for a wonderfully relaxing experience.

Type B

These rooms have been reconstructed from a headman's residence from the end of the Edo Period from Takayanagi, now part of Kashiwazaki City. The beams in the room are of a special type coming from trees that have been naturally bent by the snow and then used to take advantage of that shape. From the window you can enjoy views of a registered cultural property building. There is very much the feeling of having stepped back in time to a Snow Country of a previous era.

Type C

This room type has been created from the mansion of a rice merchant from Nagaoka. The best parts of the Japanese style of the original Ryugon have been preserved, and for additional comfort for guests, Simmons beds have been added. Not only the room itself, but also the corridors are laid with tatami. It has the ambience of a traditional folk house but also the added conveniences of a hotel.
