The first reason to consider Jinya Ryokan might be convenience — it’s an hour by train from Shinjuku Station, which means Tokyo residents can swap city for country in no time at all. Foreign visitors might find it even easier — there’s a regular shuttle straight to Jinya from Narita. But the appeal of its location is much more than simply a matter of travel time.
Tsurumaki Onsen, in Kanagawa, is the very picture of the archetypal Japanese country resort, and it’s no coincidence that the celebrated animator Hayao Miyazaki spent time at Jinya Ryokan during his childhood — anyone who’s seen films like Spirited Away will recognize a certain almost supernatural aspect to the beauty of Jinya’s setting.
And then of course there’s the ryokan itself. A selection of totally traditional tatami-style rooms is complemented by a handful of hybrid Japanese/Western rooms, and if you’re in the market for a slightly more indulgent ryokan experience there’s Matsukaze, a freestanding residence with its own outdoor cypress tub.
The hot springs’s waters are, naturally, are open to all, and the Tsurumaki spring is noted for its particularly high calcium content — and the spring water is also purportedly key to the flavors of the ryokan’s locally sourced cooking.
How to get there:
Jinya Ryokan is approximately one hour by train from Tokyo (Shinjuku). Take the Odakyu line to Tsurumaki Onsen station. Jinya Ryokan is five minutes walking from the station.
