Relax in the hot spring with the great view of Mt. Yoshino
Taking Mountain Bathing to Luxurious Levels
April 17, 2017

From the outside it looks like yet another ryokan, but really, your trip to Yoshino is incomplete without a dip in their onsen hot spring bath. Perched as it is on the hillside, their rotenburo outdoor bath overlooks the mountains, and as you can imagine it’s quite magnificent at the height of spring when the hillsides are stained here and there with cotton-candy pink. In the autumn it’s a different kind of beautiful - fiery red - to enjoy while you’re soaking in the hot waters. But it may feel most luxurious in the wintertime, as you shimmy inand enjoy the contrast between the chill air and warm waters. A hot bath never felt so good!

I live in Kyoto and think incessantly about food, both making and eating it. You can find my occasional musings about food at furochan.wordpress.com. Or more often showing you the places I've been to and what I've eaten on Instagram @furochan_eats. Y

From our very own outdoor bath "A-un no yu" within the Nakasenbon Park, you can enjoy a superb panoramic view of the world heritage Mt. Yoshino. The view of cherry blossom in the spring well-known for "hitome-senbon" (the place where one can view the vast number of cherry blossom trees at once), and the sightful colored leaves in the autumn can be viewed at this relaxing hot spring inn.

Moreover, there are lunch plan and the day-trip hot spring unique to Yoshino, which you can enjoy the Kudzu-gozen with the seasonal ingredients as well as the hot spring bath. We hope you spend the relaxing moment with us!
