外国人向けの日帰り芸者プラン New “Lunch with a Geisha” Plan


信州戸倉上山田温泉に3年半前にアメリカから引越しして、この亀清旅館の跡継ぎになりました。亀清の伝統的な昔ながらな温泉宿の良さに憧れ、戸倉上山田の芸者文化の魅力を感じ、そして信州の山と温泉、その自然に感動してまいりました。私みたいに海外から長野に来る方の為にその三つの魅力を組み合わせて、下記の商品を計画しております:
Lunch with a Geisha
* 亀清旅館の会席料理
* 上山田温泉のお湯
* 戸倉上山田温泉の芸者体験
戸倉上山田温泉の初の芸者・昼食プランで毎週木曜日のお昼で実施する予定です。お風呂は亀清旅館の「百年風呂」というテーマの手造り露天風呂と、12月に出来たヒバの露天風呂で上山田の温泉らしいお湯を楽しんで頂けます。お料理は亀清の注目されているChef武井の手をかけた会席料理です。芸者さんのエンタテインメントはもちろん芸を見せるだけではなく、お座敷遊び(金比船々、他)や踊り(地元の「千曲の小唄」等)の体験も。「温泉」と「会席料理」と「芸者」の楽しみ3味のお昼のプランです。
地獄谷のスノーモンキー、善光寺の歴史と文化、松本城と日本アルプス、白馬や野沢、志賀高原のスキー場、等など、長野県のInboundの魅力は沢山あります。この”Lunch with a Geisha”プランで海外からの旅行者が温泉文化にも触れ合えるように目指しています。
I moved to Nagano 3-1/2 years ago to Togura Kamiyamada Onsen to continue my wife’s family inn, Kamesei Ryokan. I really like the traditional feel of Kamesei, with its central garden and semi-detached rooms and warm wood construction. Togura Kamiyamada Onsen also appeals to me with its geisha heritage, and I love Nagano’s beautiful nature — the green mountains and soothing onsen baths. Now I have created a plan incorporating the best of all three:
Lunch with a Geisha
* “Kaiseki” meal served in our traditional ryokan
* A soak in our Kamiyamada Onsen mineral baths
* Entertainment by Togura Kamiyamada geishas.

This is Togura Kamiyamada Onsen’s first lunch-time Geisha plan. Our Chef Takei will prepare a full multi-course meal featuring local and seasonal ingredients, and I will add a detailed explanation in English for our guests from overseas. Before or after the lunch, the guests can enjoy Kamiyamada’s onsen water high in sulfur content. We feature outdoor baths in both the men’s and women’s sides. And there will be geisha entertainment. Some songs and dances will be performed for the guests to enjoy passively, but then the geisha will engage the guests in traditional parlor games as well as teaching them some of our local dances. It should be a memorable “ryokan” and “onsen” and “geisha” experience for the guests.

Nagano is fortunate to have so many attractions for foreigners — Jigokudani’s snow monkeys, historical Zenkoji Temple in Nagano City, Matsumoto Castle and the Japanese Alps, Hakuba & Nozawa, Shiga Kogen and other ski resorts, and so much more. Now, with this “Lunch with a Geisha” plan, I hope to share Nagano’s onsen culture with visitors from abroad.
