Meals are a big part of a traditional Ryokan experience and most generally provide an elaborate style of cooking called 'kaiseki'. A typical kaiseki meal features seasonal and regional specialties and consist of many small and varied dishes.

For this reason, most Ryokan stress that guests be punctual for their meals in order for each dish to be enjoyed at the proper temperature. At Kiriya, a staff member will come to your room before each meal to summon you at the appropriate time. Drinks for the whole meal are customarily ordered ahead of time, because once the meal has been fully served, guests are left to finish their meal at their leisure without interruption.

At least one Kaiseki dinner should be experienced during a Ryokan stay. It is a unique look into Japanese cuisine and could be considered both a cultural and dining experience.

Kiriya is a ryokan, and as such, is slightly different to your standard hotel. There is no real Western equivalent to the experience of staying in a Ryokan, but a good comparison might be found by combining the personal service and relaxed atmosphere of a bed & breakfast with the pampering found in a day spa. For Japanese guests, the main drawcards of a Ryokan are the traditional style rooms, the natural hot spring baths, delicious food, and in particular the personal service.

Kiriya Ryokan is a family-run accommodation and has been for five generations - Ko is the current custodian and the face of Kiriya.

As an English-speaker, she will guide you through a very Japanese experience while you enjoy our traditional hand-crafted rooms, internationally acclaimed 'kaiseki' meals, and friendly service.

Kiriya Ryokan also features private spring-fed onsen hot spring and bathing facilities.

Located in the oldest part of the historic Nozawa Onsen village, Kiriya Ryokan is less than a 5 minute walk to the main street and its many restaurants. For skiers and snowboarders, the 'Yu-Road' moving pathway is just a three minute walk - that takes you directly to the base Hikage slopes of Nozawa Onsen.
