Founded during the Meiji era, Notoya Ryokan is a quaint eight-room inn located about seven minutes away from Hida-Furukawa Station by foot.
True to Hida Furukawa’s old-time feel, Notoya is a picture of traditional Japanese hospitality. The ryokan’s wooden exterior and Japanese-styled rooms create a peaceful environment for guests, complete with minimalistic craftsmanship, futon, and sliding doors.
Notoya’s dishes further highlight its dedication to simplicity with meals centered around fluffy Koshihikari rice, seasonal vegetables, and fresh fish.
During the Furukawa Festival, Notoya is on the path of the Okoshi-Daiko or wake-up drum procession, making it a prime spot for festival-goers to watch the spectacle. Given its convenience and aesthetic, Notoya Ryokan is a great option for travellers looking for a cultural lodging experience.
