This time, I would like to introduce “Ryokan Sugimoto” from Matsumoto City, Nagano Prefecture.
The inn is an antique inn with old-fashioned designs and interiors that make you feel as if you have stepped back in time.
The location, charm, rooms, and cuisine are listed here for your reference.
Location of Ryokan Sugimoto
The inn “Ryokan Sugimoto” is a folk art inn where old-fashioned but slightly fashionable jazz music continues to be played.
The inn’s interior is decorated with Matsumoto folk art furniture, chandeliers, and historical antiques, creating a nostalgic atmosphere.
By train, it takes about 2 hours and 30 minutes to get to Matsumoto Station from Shinjuku in Tokyo by the limited express Azusa, and about 2 hours from Nagoya by the limited express Shinano.
In the vicinity, there are many places of interest that can be reached in about 5 to 10 minutes by car, such as the National Treasure Matsumoto Castle, the Matsumoto Folk Art Museum, and the Former Kaichi School (Important Cultural Property).
The charm of Ryokan Sugimoto
You can fully enjoy Utsukushi-ga-hara Onsen, a famous hot spring with a long history, including the open-air bath “Tsukimi-ike” paved with blue stones and the indoor bath “Shiraito-no-yu” using the five trees of Kiso.
All of these hot springs feature an abundance of hot water, with 29.3 liters per minute gushing out from the source.
The alkaline simple hot spring water is gentle on the skin, and is expected to be effective in relieving physical and mental fatigue and stress, such as joint pain, muscle pain, and neuralgia.
