lobbyAccommodation at Gojyuan

Gojyuan is a small ryokan with only two guest rooms so we are able to provide the hospitality and service that is customary in Japan.

Each room is 8 tatami mat in size with private bathroom facilities and traditional decor - tokonoma ( alcove ), oshiire ( futon cupboard ) with shoji screens opening on to a verandah overlooking a Japanese style garden.

The rooms also have TV, blue-ray, reverse cycle air conditioning, free WiFi, bar fridge and tea making facilities but all modern technology is tastefully hidden. The bedding is futon style and laid out each night after dinner.

koi pond

A koi pond is featured outside the main lobby area and continues beside the covered walkway between the guest rooms. This provides a quiet space where you can listen to the sounds of running water and our local birds. The perfect place to relax after a busy day.


The bath house or ofuro has its own private garden and is located off the walkway. This facility is only available for guests staying at our ryokan and is available from 7am until 11pm.


Breakfast is Japanese style and includes rice, miso soup, pickles, vegetables, egg and fish. It is served in the lobby so you can enjoy the view and relaxing atmosphere of our koi pond.
