Winner at the prestigious Victorian Tourism Awards, Australia’s renowned Japanese guesthouse is an indulgent retreat featuring traditional accommodation, delicious cuisine, and luxurious spa treatments.

Set amid tranquil bushland in central Victoria’s picturesque “spa country”, Shizuka Ryokan is authentic in every detail including its architecture, furnishings and landscaping.

The genuine and warm hospitality of the owner and staff offer personalised service to each and every guest.

Whilst highly traditional, Shizuka Ryokan also provides creature comforts such as the open fireplace in the lounge, and hydronic heating and air conditioning in the guestrooms.


Couples, singles and small groups come to the inn to relax, indulge, rejuvenate and immerse themselves in the romance and tranquility.

Shizuka Ryokan is also a unique function venue for community and corporate groups to conduct retreats, workshops and meetings.

Located just 75 minutes from Melbourne in Hepburn Springs near Daylesford, it’s a small piece of Japan that’s close to home.

(For Aussies, that’s much more accessible than the long flight to Kyoto)
