Wakamatsu Chita Hot Spring Resort

If you are looking for authentic ryokans in Aichi prefecture, I would highly recommend Wakamatsu Chita Hot Spring Resort.  The location is not in Nagoya city.  It takes 60min by train from Nagoya station, but it’s well worth a visit.  If you are a gourmet, I really think you should stay here.  This is one of the best auberge ryokans in Aichi.  On the other hand, if you are looking for rooms with private hot springs, this is not.  The property has no room with private hot springs.  There are private family hot springs in-house, though.  Once we arrived at the property, staff welcomed us very warmly and served Japanese sweet and green tea at the lobby.  We relaxed here while viewing a traditional small garden.  It’s like you’re in another world.  The property would be great for couples, solo travelers, family, or small groups.  There are 18 rooms.  We never met other guests during our stay.  Wakamatsu Chita Hot Spring Resort completely emphasizes private experiences for each guest.  The ambience is serene, charming and quaint.  If you are going to stay here, I would highly recommend booking a room on 5F.  All rooms are facing the ocean, but rooms on 5F would be the best if you want to see magnificent ocean views.  The room tends to be cramped, but cozy and functional.  Facilities tend to be bit worn-out, but the housekeeping was excellent.  The inside is well-maintained even though the outside of the building is bit outdated.  The property was renovated few years ago.  Free WiFi was good when we stayed in 2019.  Then all of the amenities are taken care of including enough toiletries, a green tea set, yukatas, sweets, and a nice coffee machine with capsules.  Also, there are colorful yukatas which you can choose.  There are skincare amenities in the bathroom.  It seems that each room has a separate shower cabin, but there is no bathtub.  Then room service is available by iPad provided in each room.  Also, you can adjust room temperature, lighting equipment, and curtains, etc., using the iPad.  On top of that, you can use streaming service to watch TV dramas and moves, and listen to music.  Then there is no convenience store within 5min walking distance.  You may want to buy your necessities before coming here.  There is no vending machine, but complimentary coffee, tea, and hot cocoa, etc., are available at the lobby lounge.  Also, some kinds of wine, Japanese sake, and whisky are available at additional charges.  The lounge has such a laid-back atmosphere.  You can appreciate the old-world beauty of the garden while drinking.  Then there are small indoor and outdoor communal hot springs.  Also, there are two private family hot springs which you can use for free.  You need to book them in advance.  You may want to check in earlier for better time selections.  All of them are open from 6:00-10:00, 15:00-24:00.  *If you have tattoos, you may not be permitted to use the communal bathing area.  You may want to use the private family ones.  Then Wakamatsu Chita Hot Spring Resort is not universal design.  If you bring people with weak feet, I wouldn’t recommend it.  There are some steps.  You may want to stay at others.  Then Kyoto kaiseki food experience was just divine.  If you love Japanese food, you must be excited.  The portion tends to be average.  You need to check in by 19:00 if you have dinner in the property.  Basically, dinner is served at a private room.  If you prefer meal served in your room, you can request at an additional charge.  Breakfast time is between 7:30-9:30. *Please note that inform staff when you book a room with meals if you have any food allergies.  They probably wouldn’t be able to prepare alternative food if you request on that day.  Then staff tends to be patchy.  Some staff is professional, though.  Overall, the property has great value for money if you love hot springs, Japanese kaiseki food, and authentic ryokans.  An access to the property would be easy.  Free shuttle service is available from Utsumi Station.  You need to book it in advance.  At last, the property is located in front of a designated swimming area.  There would be so many children visiting here during the summer season between mid July and mid Aug.  If you want to relax in a tranquil atmosphere, you may want to avoid staying here during the summer season.  Have a nice trip!  Welcome to receive any questions about Wakamatsu Chita Hot Spring Resort from the below space.  *All information is as of the date that I posted on my blog.  Check Availability and Pricing for the ryokan on Booking.com or Agoda
