The reason why TIMELESS YUKIGUNI recommend Ryokan Tanigawa.

The ryokans selected to represent TIMELESS YUKIGUNI embody the very best of the Japanese hospitality tradition and the highest levels of comfort. Yet each one of them goes further than this, and all have incorporated influences from the history, culture, and way of life of the area. For those who see travel as an opportunity to broaden their minds and horizons, rather than mere sightseeing, TIMELESS YUKIGUNI ryokans are the perfect choice.

Ryokan Tanigawa sits alongside the Tanigawa river at the foot of Mount Tanigawa in Minakami in Gunma Prefecture. It was specially constructed to make the most of its fantastic views of the famous mountains that looms above it.

Nature at the Foot of an Infamous Mountain

The whole area stands inside the borders of the Joshinetsu National Park, and Mount Tanigawa, one of the famous peaks in Japan, towers over everything. The rooms at the hotel are designed to make the most of this view so you can relax and enjoy the pristine nature of the valley. It is an ever changing show with the seasonal variety giving it a different aspect as the months tick by. With its healing onsen and peaceful location it was a place writers and artists came to relax and seek inspiration.


As you would expect from a ryokan that is in a process of continual improvement, any stay here is going to be a comfortable one. Ryokan Tanigawa offers a classic experience of onsen and hospitality.

Room with a View

The structure of the building has been designed to give each room a spectacular view from the windows out onto the face of Mount Tanigawa and the nature of the valley all around.
