    Enjoy natural food and natural hot springs... Spend a blissful time with two meals included [Popular at our hotel] [Breakfast] [Dinner]

    We have prepared healthy dishes using wild vegetables, herbs, and seafood that you can enjoy the taste of all year round. Enjoy a variety of healthy herb dishes that the owner of the inn has created himself. Once you're full, soothe your fatigue by taking a dip in the hot spring water that flows directly from the source. The rooms are mainly built around detached houses, so you can relax in a private space. ■□Meals□■ Meals mainly using wild vegetables and herbs grown in Takanosu, which is rich in nature. In order to serve our guests high-quality food, we have spent 2-3 years preparing the soil, planted wild vegetables brought back from the mountains, and have been carefully cultivating them for nearly 10 years. Please enjoy the seasonal flavors that change with the seasons. In addition to wild vegetables, we are also particular about the ingredients we use, and use seafood from the Sea of Japan landed at Iwafune Port, as well as Asahi pork and Koshihikari rice from the local Sekikawa village. Please enjoy our healthy meals that are good for your body. Both breakfast and dinner meals are served in the rooms. *If there are 5 or more guests staying, we cannot guarantee that meals will be served in the rooms. Also, meals are not served in the rooms at Bettei Kisumi Yukishita and Tsukushi. ■□Hot Springs□■ 100% natural spring water! You can bathe 24 hours a day. The water is colorless and transparent, but it is gentle on the skin, as only hot springs can be. The rooms are equipped with indoor and outdoor baths, but there are also outdoor baths for men and women. Enjoy a hot spring bath in a rustic bath made of cedar logs. *About using the large public bath and outdoor bath in winter* During the winter season, all baths except the outdoor baths in the guest rooms are closed. Thank you for your understanding. ■□Rooms□■ The facility is built around a detached house, so you can relax without worrying about your surroundings and feel as if you are in a villa. The guest rooms are separated into a dining area, a Japanese-style room where you can relax, and a bedroom. From the open-air bath attached to the guest room, you can see the clear waters of the Arakawa River, which is said to be the most beautiful in Japan. There is plenty of nature to enjoy, such as trekking and stargazing at night! Perfect for family trips. *Some rooms do not offer a view of the outside world. *Please note that children aged 0-12 cannot be accommodated in the annex.
