Ryokan Chinsenro is about 2 kilometers away from the mouth of the Miyama-gawa River in Miyama's famous thatched village (Kayabuki no Sato). The ryokan sees cool weather in the summertime and is snow-covered in the wintertime (though to a lesser extent these days). Meals at Ryokan Chinsenro combine fresh mountain produce with culinary expertise, allowing for the subtle flavours of the produce to shine through. The specialty in summer is a formally arranged kaiseki course meal showcasing wild-caught sweetfish. Autumn showcases the matsutake mushroom, and in winter wild boar hot pot and barbeque made using three different parts of the wild boar are delicacies. All the rooms at Ryokan Chisenro look out onto the Miyama-gawa River, where the tranquil sounds of water in the stream help guests to unwind and enjoy the view. The classically idyllic scenery of pre-modern Japan is still vivid in the mountain village of Miyama. Please come and enjoy the delicacies nutured by Miyama's beautiful water, air, and land, equally blessed with the free and easy atmosphere of the town.
