Introduction to the Onsen, hot springs

Outdoor baths with clear view, a large bathhouse with magnificent roof beam structure and open-air baths are available. And the Shirahone’s hot spring direct from the fountainhead draining freely that overflows the reserved bath only for you at the bathhouse is the gift of the blessing from the earth that has never changed to date. Enjoy fully the warmth of the hot spring of each of the four seasons in the bathtub with an atmosphere unique to us as a headspring that has long been protected and passed down to the present time.
※Note: All of our large bathhouse, open-air/outdoor baths, and reservable baths use the hot spring taken directly from our own fountainhead and draining freely. Please note that the hot spring is heated to make it of the best temperature for bathing.
