The serene Tobira Onsen Myojinkan sits surrounded by the forest deep in the mountains above Matsumoto city. It combines the elements of a traditional Japanese ryokan inn with all the creature comforts of a modern luxury hotel for a wonderfully relaxing rural retreat.

45 rooms all enjoy their own onsen bath, either indoors or outside, and guests have the option of either sleeping on a simple futon over tatami mats or a Western-style bed. There are a number of natural hot spring baths here, open day and night, each offering blissful views of the stunning forest scenery accompanied by the sounds of murmuring brooks, tranquil bird song and conifers swaying gently in the breeze.

Unlike other ryokans, where simple Japanese Kaiseki cuisine served in-room is the only dining option, there are three restaurants here serving modern Japanese delicacies and organic macrobiotic French as well as Kaiseki.

When not relaxing at Myojinkan, guests can explore the forest and nearby scenic areas of the Japanese Alps, as well as take trips into the historic Matsumoto city.
