Only an hour away from Tokyo, Tsurumaki Onsen is one of the most conveniently-located hot-spring resorts in Japan. Here, the ambience of ancient tradition coexists harmoniously with modern surroundings.

Strolling through the alleyways, you will come across a Japanese garden which has been carefully maintained in the traditional style. As you pass through the garden, the welcoming sounds of Japanese drums will be heard at the entrance. In this moment, you will forget about the hustle and bustle of everyday life and find yourself drifting away into another era; the era of ancient Japan. "Tsurumaki Onsen Jinya Ryokan" is a traditional Japanese garden inn which has preserved the delicate natural beauty of Japan to this day.

Hayao Miyazaki - the master of Japanese animation - spent a lot of his childhood at this ryokan, and his memories of that time had a significant influence on his films "Tonari no Totoro" (My Neighbor Totoro) and "Sen to Chihiro no Kamikakushi" (Spirited Away). The camphor tree depicted in Tonari no Totoro was based upon the image of Totoro no Ki, which can be seen in our garden.
