Ratings   (explanation of our rating system)

Global rating :      
Three different rotenburo (plus an outside family bath) provide ample place to soak in this ryokan. Two rotenburo are located together on one side, while visitors have to put their clothes back on to reach the third, quieter one.

Size :    
Even is the baths are not extremely large, their location on two different wings of the ryokan and their shapes provide enough privacy for everybody, making this ryokan a very attractive place to soak.

View :     
View is limited to the surrounding mountains, which are partially hidden by trees. Lots of light, however. In autumn, when leaves change color (koyo), the mountain opposite the baths displays an impressive mixture of green, red, brown and yellow colors - a very fine time to enjoy this ryokan.

Modesty :    
Presence of several bath allows to keep some privacy. Only the isolated rotenburo provides separated changing room for women.

Area :    
Oigami Onsen is conveniently located 150 km north-west of Tokyo, in the Gunma prefecture, making it one of the closest gateway from Tokyo for onsen lovers. This small and quiet onsen town on the shores of the Oigami river has a large number of ryokan; its onsen have been known for more than 1000 years. Fukiwari no Taki, an impressively shaped waterfall, can be found a couple of kilometers north to Oigami. This spot is very worth a stop: you can walk on the shore of the river, reaching very close to the waterfall. In summer and autumn, you can literally stand a couple of meters from it, as there is no fence there. In winter, the frozen waterfall offers an incredible sight. Further north, the famous Oze marshland can be found.
