Old Farmhouse Ryokan 'Miyamoto-ke', Chichibu, Saitama

On entering Chichibu, many visitors feel as if they were passing through a time warp into another country or a bygone era as the train leaves behind Tokyo’s crowded suburbs and winds through steep slopes forested with oaks, beeches and cedars. The Oku Chichibu highlands, however, are a mere 70 kilometers northwest of Tokyo, or about 50 minutes by rail.

Renovated a 200-year-old farmhouse, Miyamotoke is a quaint Japanese style ryokan situated in the town of Ogano nestled among vast mountains of Oku Chichibu where historical pilgrimage temples are scattered around. The ryokan enjoys amazing views that delicately change each season throuhout a year. 

On renovation, Miyamotoke aimed to establish clean and comfortbale environment of modernity suitable for a holiday inn while retaining the feels of original old folk house. Particularly, the bar (renovated an old storage-house) is a space of comfort, and offers guests relaxing time after sunset. 

4 out of 6 guest-rooms are equipped with a cozy private bath room (2 are equipped with open air bath). The facility includes an in-door bath, an open-air bath and a karaoke room. Miyamotoke also offers a variety of accommodation plans to enrich a journey of each guest.

In addition to the vegetables and local ingredients cultivated on-site and used in this inn's hearth-grilled menu, the bar makes use of a converted wine cellar, and it is here that you can try homemade fruit liqueurs.

1 Indoor bath, 1 Open-air bath
