A hotel supplied with free flowing spring water with a mountain stream just across the way.
This area known as Itajiki River features rocks laid out flat like a piece of board: it is one of the country's most unusual sceneries. With this view right before your eyes, you can bathe in natural hot spring water straight from its source.
Feel at one with the river in the open-air garden bath, a bath traditionally crafted from the luxurious wood of Cypress trees, and a "hoekisen" bath that gives the sensation of floating out through a window into the sky.
A bath wrapped in the sound of the stream's gentle trickle evokes a luxuriant hot spring cradle, lulling you into a longer stay within its waters.
Meals feature all the produce of the mountains you'd expect to find in rustic, country cuisine.
Enjoy the fruits of the mountains throughout the four seasons: mountain vegetables in spring, sweetfish in summer, mushrooms in autumn and wild boar in winter.
Upon crossing the threshold, even first time visitors are struck by a sense of returning home; our good old Japanese hotel style always seems to trigger nostalgia from somewhere.
Although the facilities may not be the newest, this rustic rural hotel offers charming links back to the Taisho and early Showa period.
We look forward to welcoming you.
