Welcome to Umeyashiki Ryokan
Umeyashiki Ryokan is located on a hill in the heart of the peaceful Nikko a six minute walk from the vermillion-lacquered Shinkyo Bridge. There are many ume (Japanese plum) trees in the garden at the old site of Kosho-an completed by Osho Santei at the old site of Rinnoji-ji Temple gate in 1857. This gave birth to our name of “Umeyashiki” (lit: “Japanese Plum Residences”). You will find Ogurayama Natural Botanical Garden to the east; the 2,000 meter Nikko Reiho to the north; Toshogu Shrine and Rinno-ji Temple appearing in the middle of the forest to the west; and seasonal flowers blooming in a large garden to the view of the distant Kanto Plain from the city to the south. Please make sure to enjoy a visit here.

Local Ingredients with History
People gathered from all over Japan in both Kyoto and Nikko in the era when sangaku shinko (mountain worship) thrived.
Many monks and mountaineering ascetics came to Nikko as a place to practice Buddhism centered on Rinno-ji Temple.
At that time, yuba was favored as a healthy ingredient instead of fish and so it enjoyed popularity as shojin ryori (vegetarian cuisine of Buddhist monks). Ieyasu Tokugawa came to be enshrined in Nikko in the Edo Period (1603 to 1868) and yuba was
firmly established for use in meals given to worshippers.
Yuba then spread to the general population in the Meiji Period (1868 to 1912).
This taste that remains unchanged from the olden days has now been passed down to the current generation.
We serve hearty Japanese-style breakfasts with a good nutritional balance. We use the famous yuba for both our boiled tofu and miso grill.
