Message from the accommodation
Nestled in the quaint town of Uonuma, Tomoya hotel is the perfect place to spend a laid-back vacation. Tomoya’s retro feel, relaxing atmosphere, and charming rooms set it apart from any other ryokan in Niigata. The gourmet dinner is one of the most delicious yet creative meals you will find. And there is plenty of entertainment for kids of all ages in the games room. Enjoy vintage arcade games, billiards and ping pong, to name a few, all while listening to music of all genres on classic vinyl LPs. Then slip into a hot bath in one of the private or larger o-furo baths and get ready for a great night’s sleep! Tomoya has it all. Coustomer’s feedback

Creative cuisine using local ingredients from Uonuma.
You can taste the season of Uonuma such as wild vegetables, local vegetables and natural mushrooms. One of the most impressive dishes is the “maitake nabe”. The only ingredient was the maitake mushroom. Large and thick maitake mushrooms are placed in the pot. It is a luxury to be able to simply taste fresh maitake. You can enjoy the aroma and the firm texture of the maitake. The quality of the ingredients and the boldness of the dish is something that can only be achieved in a place of origin.
Other dishes include a salad of freshly picked wild vegetables and a plump roasted salmon, a speciality of Niigata Prefecture.
The seasonings are carefully selected from all over the country, and the broth is as good as that of a restaurant. Even the processed products are made without additives. It is a very natural cuisine, using only what is harvested. There is no way it could be bad.
