About us

Matsubaya Inn

Matsubaya Ryokan first started around 1884, when our predecessors treated a monk from at Higashi-Honganji temple.
Since then we have welcomed many guests, such as Buddhist priests, adherents, merchants, tourists and school trip students.

And now, we welcome many tourists from foreign countries.
However this wooden two-story building has become too old to prepare a comfortable and secure room for guests.
We are going to make a fresh start to keep traditional Japanese atmosphere and culture, by our guests making themselves at home by using Futon (Japanese bed), Yukata (Japanese wear) in a Japanese Tatami-floor room.
We look forward to seeing you again in Autumn 2008
