This inn is divided between new wings and older wings, with the Taisho Wing built about 100 years ago during the Taisho Period (early 1900s). The Taisho Wing is being operated while the building is carefully maintained. Inside you can experience the atmosphere of the Taisho Period, during which designs of mixed Western and Japanese style were popular as can be seen with the inn’s corridors, furniture and windows. You’ll experience real Japanese hospitality with peaceful country-side scenery, top notch historical hot springs, Japanese kaiseki cuisine, and the utmost sincere and heartfelt hotel service.
The hot springs waters here have been refreshing and reviving the bodies and minds of the Japanese people since before 1250, and even the crime fiction writer Seicho Matsumoto stayed at this hotel for 2 months in 1966. The rooms he stayed in has been preserved, and a study that is inspired by his stay at the hotel is available for all guests to read and relax in.
Please note that you may be asked to pick up and carry your luggage in order to preserve flooring such as in the hallways or tatami rooms. Meals will be served in a restaurant at tables with chairs from which you can see the bamboo forests.
**Please note that there are no English speaking staff available at this inn.
