Welcome to Tajimaya. This Minshuku is located in Magome along the Nakasendo road which was used extensively by travelers during the Edo Period. All the rooms at Tajimaya are Japanese-style, and all bathing and toilet facilities are shared among the guests. The Japanese "irori" (hearth) is over 100 years old and it is still in use. The owners of Tajimaya serve fresh, local cuisine in the ryokan's dining area and guests can relax in the wooden tubs after a long day's hike.

We walked from Tsumago to Magome with our two kids (8 and 10yo) in the snow. It was a perfect day, and topped off by finding a comfortable and quite place to stay in the picturesque Magome. After a traditional bath we dressed in the Yukatas that were provided and sat down for one of the most memorable feasts of our trip in Japan. Truly spectacular and highly recommended.

We had a 5 ***** stay her with the Wong family from Singapore and another couple. After dinner our host taught us a traditional song and was very patient while we learnt a traditional dance too. We then enjoyed some Seven Smiles Sake followed by a cup of tea. A wonderful warm welcome and friendly farewell in the morning.

Great stay!! :)

This ryokan was amazing! The host really went above and beyond for this one. After having a fantastic gazillion-course meal (of which, the host had also harvested the rice himself!), he taught us a traditional Japanese song and dance. The room itself was great, and the town was so picturesque - the snow covered everything. I would definitely stay here again if I go back to Magome.

We stayed at Tajimaya for two nights in mid-April. We had a wonderful stay -- in large part due to the kindness of the owners. Our children are somewhat picky in what they eat, and the first night did not eat much of what was served to them at dinner (despite the fact that there was a considerable diversity of foods served). So the next morning, the owner came up to us and asked what our kids liked to eat. The following evening, they had tailored our meals to fit our kids' tastes. I've stayed at multiple minshukus and ryokans in the past, and never had such individualized service before. Besides that, we enjoyed the dance and song lesson, the location right in the busiest section of Magome, the comfortable room. We would recommend Tajimaya very highly.

Wonderful ryokan, very good dinner and very kind owner.He showed us a traditional dance of the region and carried us by car on the top of Magome; so we went down too Tsumago be feet and the bus took us back.Perfect day; to avoid tourists you have to stay the night; Magome becomes quiet again

We walked from Tsumago on a glorious, warm Autumn day and were very happy with the comfort and cleanliness of Tajimaya. The inn is centrally located in the village and the benefit was we could enjoy Magome in the early morning and evening without the crowds of sightseeing groups who visit. The staff were very efficient and helpful about dropping bags off and providing information. We had a sleeping room and a living room at the back of the inn, which was very quiet. The facilities are shared and but they were very clean. Dinner and breakfast were excellent!

Good, not great

Of the three ryokans I stayed in through Japanese Guest Houses, this was my least favorite, probably because it was fully booked & the staff were pressed to cope. My room was very quiet, but the couple I sat next to at dinner (assigned seats - not my favorite) had a room next to the bathrooms.

I stayed for a day here in November and enjoyed myself. The Tajimaya inn retains an old-world atmosphere with its decor, and I found it to be clean and comfortable. The hosts were all friendly, and I remember one (was he the head of the inn?) who chatted with me and told me he farmed the rice we were having. And of course, the rice, along with the rest of the food, was delicious - exceptionally so. Like many traditional ryokans, the toilets and bathing facilities are away from the rooms, and Tajimaya is a little more troublesome than most; I stayed on the second floor and had to go down to the basement to use the gents. I'd still highly recommend the inn if you don't mind this inconvenience.
