About us

This ryokan is divided between new wing and older wing, 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 ryokan’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 spring water here has been refreshing and reviving the bodies and minds of the local people since before 1250. One of the famous mystery writers, Seicho Matsumoto stayed at this ryokan for 2 months in 1965. The room he stayed in has been preserved, and a study room where he inspired and wrote a mystery novel, D no fukugou (Crossing Degrees; latitude & longitude) during his stay at the ryokan is available for all guests to read and enjoy the same atmosphere Seicho felt in the past..
