We rented a room with a private bath in Kashiwaya Ryokan for a more accessible onsen experience. There are also ‘private’ public baths available at the ryokan, with a door that can locked, so couples, families or groups can use these privately. The temperature of the baths were very pleasant, not too hot!
Kashiwaya Ryokan looks wonderful and we had a very spacious room. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The meals were luxurious and plentiful.
The village of Shima Onsen is a small town and a nice place to walk about. In the vicinity there are plenty of woods, lakes and waterfalls to explore and admire.
All combined we had a very relaxing weekend at Kashiwaya Ryokan. Highly recommended place for an onsen experience.
Thank you for leaving us such a nice review!
We are glad that you had great onsen experience.
This is a place that people can get away from the hustle-bustle and chill out!
The colors of Okushima lake change like emerald green, cobalt blue, depending on the seasons and the weather.
Looking forward to seeing you again in the other seasons!
