Zao Onsen Youshitsinoyu is a Western-style hotel situated on the rise of a forest overlooking the hot springs village. Only 3 min walk to the main ski area. We offer a courtesy bus service which will take you around Zao hot springs village. We have two types of rooms ( Japanese-style rooms and Western-style rooms ). Westward rooms overlook the hot springs village, and eastward rooms face our 1,983 square meters Japanese garden. In this traditional garden, guests can enjoy the beautiful sceneries of changing seasons, from spring's renewal and bright green, to the changing colors of Autumn leaves. We have two open-air baths, one per gender. The bathtubs' sizes are rather small, but we are blessed with Zao hot springs' extremely high quality water. Our concern is to permanently offer our guests a 100% natural, non heated and non treated hot spring water. Hired open-air bath is also available free of charge. We are the closest hotel to Zao's famous large open-air bath, ensuring that our guests can enjoy a little walk there while wearing Yukatas ( Japanese summer wear ). We prepare delicious meals cooked with locally grown ingredients and especially Yonezawa and Yamagata beef which are extremely popular among our guests. Pets are allowed in the guest rooms, but we provide separate hotel buildings for guests with pets and guests without.
