Goshoboh Guestrooms

Tousen Goshoboh is composed of three sections, with three room types: Tenraku (Deluxe), Chuyo (Superior), and Chikyu (moderate). The Deluxe and Superior rooms are for a Ryokan style stay that includes 2 meals (Dinner & Breakfast). The moderate room type can be used for hotel style stay, and charged room rate only. Each room has its charming characteristics, a particular view, a certain personality, and a unique cosmos.

TENRAKU -Deluxe

Located in the ryokan’s most historic sections “ The Cloud-capped mountains UNZAN GOBO” and ”The sound of water trickles CHOSUI GOBO” , where Tousen Goshoboh has been relocated during the 3rd year of Bunroku era (1594) by Lord Toyotomi Hideyoshi. The 8 Deluxe rooms have been slightly renovated, however, they still keep the genuine delicacy of the Showa Shoki era ( early 1920s). Each room exhibits works of a novelist or poet who had loved Goshoboh. For instance, handwritten letters and books of the novelist Tanizaki Jun Ichiro, who was a fan of the inn and has mentioned it in his novel “A Cat, A Man, and Two Women”. Poems by the historian novelist, Yoshikawa Eiji, who described the beautiful sound of water trickles heard from the window of one Goshoboh rooms in the 2nd floor. And writings by the samurai and four times Japan’s prime minister, Ito Hirobumi, who also admired Goshoboh and left some of his works which are displayed in the room.
Each of the TENRAKU Deluxe suite-room is composed of two blended parts of Japanese Tatami and modern living room. It includes a futon style bedroom, a living room, and a unit bathroom.
The Deluxe stay plan offers an exclusive access to the private zone “SHIHOAN” with its Tea Ceremony room, zen Garden, and open-air Bath. Please make a reservation for this private zone upon your arrival at the reception desk.
