Tobaya Ryokan

Welcome! Many thanks for visiting the homepage of “Tobaya Ryokan,” also called the ‘Hideaway in Hikone.’
The Tobaya is a Japanese-style Ryokan inn established in the 13th year of the Meiji Era (that’s the year 1880 by the western calendar). The Tobaya Ryokan is located right on the Hana Shobu Dori street in the city of Hikone.
Our style and services are particularly cherished by construction, sales and other professionals on business trips or requiring extended stays. For such extended stays, we provide a home-style atmosphere, with home-style service, and home-style cuisine, giving a relaxed feeling of ‘coming home’ each evening. And we are proud to provide laundry service at no extra charge.
Other sightseeing guests enjoy our location on the historical Hana Shobu Dori street and close proximity to Hikone’s famous spots. Men and women of all age groups visit, and nothing makes us happier than new people discovering the wonders of Hikone.
On behalf of my family, we look forward to welcoming you soon.

A Look of the Guest House

The ancient classical Japanese facade is faithfully preserved.

The scent of incense gives atmosphere to the entrance hall.

The beautiful central garden at night.

A hanging by Lord Naosuke Ii.

The Great Room sleeps 10 people on its traditional tatami mats and serves as a party room.

Space that can be called truly Japanese.
