Homemade Ryokan and cuisines, Only onsen is wild as it is
Nukabira Onsen Nakamura-ya is a nice Ryokan at home.
That charm is three, homemade building, delicious cuisine and onsen of good quality.
Let me introduce you from the building.
The handmade interior which continues renovation has warmth
If you enter the Nakamura-ya, you will meet old but good sense furnitures.
The interior is a warm wooden that takes and the owner himself makes it.
Lobby with warm interiors
About room, there are 17 rooms of 9 types. The most reasonable is Japanese style small
(2 to 3 persons with dinner and breakfast, 9870 yen per person), but this is a room before renovation,
so I recommend you homemade rooms.
For example, the room 108 (2 to 3 people with dinner and breakfast, 14,190 yen per person) is 10 tatami mats wide,
and the rim side is about 3 tatami mats.
The windows are wide.
Tatami of this room will make you surprised because that edges made from leather of Ezo deer (usually cloth).
If you wish to sleep in Futon, please confirm that because there is a case of using the bed in the renovation room.
This is the most reasonable Japanese style room.
It is old, but this is a traditional Japanese Ryokan style.
Experience mixed-bathing culture with raw onsen nature
Onsen is gensen-kakenagashi.
Gensen-kakenagasi means gush up from the source directly and without adding water ,circulating onsen with pumps.
Onsen begin to degrade from the moment they spring up, so to enjoy the onsen, ‘gensen-kakenagashi’ is a important point.
There are two bathrooms and one outdoor bath.
The first one is the flower shaped bathtub made by tile craftsmen in the Showa 30's (1960's), and the other one is warmly wooden.
This is for men and women, and its change at 22 o'clock, so be careful.
And the outdoor bath is a mixed bathing outdoor bath.
There is no blindfold around, excellent opening feeling.
While daytime, it may be a bit hurdle for women, but in the evening you can look at the sky full star from the bath.
Sometimes you can meet the Ezo deer.
By the way, I think that there is not a chance to experience mixed bathing (well Japanese are not quite right now),
but what is important is moderation.
Especially male, when female enter, greet her casually and do not watch anymore.
Although it is rare, it is an opportunity for valuable Japanese culture experience.
Please try to accommodate gentile.
