If you're looking for a traditional ryokan experience, look no further. From the hotel's exterior right through to the décor of each and every room, Sumiyoshiya offers an immersive, wonderful and enlightening experience of Japanese culture and tradition. From the delicious food through to the beautiful natural onsen, every detail has been added to ensure a calming, enjoyable experience. The hotel's in-house restaurant serves a variety of Japanese and western dishes for breakfast and dinner with a special focus on seasonal ingredients and the visual display of their food. You can taste the attention and care put into each dish, and you'll constantly be excited by the new flavours. Of course, there's also a convenience store located just down the street from the ryokan, meaning you can easily get some extra snacks, beverages or dessert, too.

The hotel offers a stunning onsen, surrounded by greenery and natural materials and sourced from naturally heated and mineralized underground sources. There's also a sauna and a massage service to accompany it, so you're looking for a day off from the slopes you won't have any trouble entertaining yourself.

If you're looking for a day in the snow, though, you also won't have any issues. The ryokan is located close to the slopes and the hotel offers ski rental services for those who need them.

Rooted in tradition and history, the ryokan's architecture and beauty speak for itself, but so do the services offered by the staff and owners, English speaking skills are strong and there is no hesitancy to help in any way possible. This truly is an authentic experience of Japanese beauty and hospitality.

Onsen & Spa

Indoor Onsen

Stained glass windows, beautiful naturally heated water; tranquil natural surroundings and design focusing on the incorporation of those natural materials are all reasons that you can’t miss a visit in the hotel’s onsen. Offering indoor as well as outdoor onsens to all guests, the onsen is the ideal place to spend a relaxing day or warm up after a long day of skiing.
The water is naturally heated and freely flowing, and is also naturally mineralized with healing and soothing properties. The small size of the indoor onsen might mean you have to wait for your turn, but the outdoor onsen is large and there’s more than enough room for everyone. The hotel also offers massage services with prior reservation, so if you’re looking to spend a day unwinding, plan in advance.
