- Baths
Gender-rotated Mountain Stream Open-air Bath ‘Takimi-no-Yu’
This is a mountain stream open-air bath with waters flowing straight from the source, where guests can feel the dramatic seasonality of the Waga River as it feeds into Lake Kinshu. The waterfall the lodging’s name is derived from is flowing right in sight. The temperatures of the open-air bath’s shallow and standing baths vary slightly. The standing bath, with a depth of 1 meter, has a massage effect due to its water pressure.

Steam Bath ‘Yumuro’
This is a natural steam bath that uses the blessings of the 97℃ hot spring source in the ‘Takimi-no-Yu’ bath. It does not reach extremely high temperatures, so there is little strain on the body, and no strong stimulation. Your skin will be gently moisturized. By inhaling the steam that rises from the hot spring, nasal congestion and respiratory organs will be relieved, and the steam also helps with remedying colds and hay fever.

Private Mountain Stream Open-air Bath ‘Wagayu’
This is the private version of the specialty ‘Takimi-no-Yu’ bath where guests can have the mountain stream and waterfall all to themselves. The indoor and open-air baths all use water that flows straight from the source. Guests can enjoy their preference of a comfortably hot bath or a warm bath. It is JPY 2,500 (tax not included) for 45 minutes, and reservations are required.

Both the Hiryu-no-Yu (men) and Saiun-no-Yu (women) baths are equipped with an open-air bath, and use 100% pure hot spring water with no added water. The faucets in the washing area and showers also use pure hot spring water!
