Tsutaya Ryokan

Tsutaya Ryokan is a renovated former mansion in Nada Town, and is a ryokan that combines an old-fashioned pure Japanese-style inn with a dormitory that meets modern needs.

Spend time at a machiya residence in Iyo City


It was originally a luxurious Japanese-Western style machiya mansion built by the late Torazo Mori, who made his fortune in the shipbuilding and shipping industry in the early Showa period, and you can stay in a traditional Japanese-style room that is almost exactly as it was back then.



``Sukiya-ma'' is a back parlor room with a distinctive sloping ceiling. The sliding door of the Jibukuro in the alcove is covered with silver leaf, making it an elaborate structure. The largest room at Tsutaya Ryokan, the ``Shoin-ma'', is an 8-tatami and 6-tatami-sized adjoining room, with beautiful shoin transoms and Kumiko-work shoji screens.


The common room available to guests staying in the bunk-bed dormitory looks like the boardroom of a long-established company. You can enjoy Netflix and more on the large TV.



The modern Showa era interior will thrill you.


Tiles are used everywhere, including the entrance dirt floor, washroom, and bathroom, giving it a modern Showa-era feel.


There are stone lanterns and wash basins in the courtyard, and the large hall and accommodation rooms are purely Japanese, but the entrance and lobby are Western-style. Please enjoy the inside of the building, which is full of the real pleasure of a fusion of Japanese and Western styles, where Western-style fittings are fitted into the floor plan of a Japanese house, and the seemingly disparate combination seems to fit together strangely.



Nada Town has a unique style of townhouses


The houses that line Nada-cho are long and narrow, with narrow frontage facing the street and considerable depth. This is similar to the townhouse structure where townspeople live on residential land cut into strips. However, the machiya in Nada-machi is 60 ken (approximately 17 meters) deep at its maximum, and it is said that even machiya in Kyoto are at most 30 ken, so they are about twice as deep as normal.


This was because the town was divided not by magistrates or other powerful figures, but by wealthy local merchants. It can be seen that town development was entirely carried out by the townspeople. At that time, people built houses and shops along the highway and cultivated fields in the back. This unique style can be fully seen in the depth and length of the ivy inn.
