A luxurious traditional inn with a modern touch

This luxurious ryokan inn dating back 140 years draws its hot spring waters from the oldest spring in Kusatsu Onsen, Shirahata Gensen.

The baths have been restored, and the rooms updated, combining traditional and modern design. Naraya has indoor and outdoor baths, including private baths and a large public bath.

Meals feature exquisitely presented dishes that highlight local ingredients. Visit the cafe and bar after a day of exploring, and enjoy traditional sweets or a nightcap served in Edo kiriko glassware. Its central location makes Naraya an ideal base for sightseeing around the Kusatsu area.
