Welcome to Shima Grand Hotel
As of January, 1st, 2015 Shima Grand Hotel is proud to announce our partnership with the world famous Hello Kitty.
Located deep in the forest of Joshinetsu National Park surrounded by abundant nature and blessed with a wealth of rich natural hot springs Tamura Ryokan has welcomed visitors since 1563 (the Muromachi Period). Its annex known as Shima Grand Hotel presents a new type of onsen and café experience partnering with none other than Hello Kitty herself! With a wonderful and unique breath of fresh air Hello Kitty has given a fun and modern Japanese twist adding another chapter to this storied hotel. It’s hard to even believe the beloved Shima Onsen was once isolated during the Meiji and Taisho Periods (1868-1926). We hope with the help of Hello Kitty and a recurring line up of original goods we’ll introduce that you’ll find something new and exciting each time you visit us.
