Onsen/Hot spring baths
One of Japan’s most celebrated healing hot spring baths with over 1,200 years of history.
The healing mineral content of the waters in Yunogo is said to be NaCa chlorides containing nitrogen gas. It is slightly alkaline and apparently very rare, being one of only three such hot springs in the world. Tiny bubbles in the waters stick to you skin to keep you warm which makes it possible for you to have a long soak in a bath filled with water which is lower in temperature than usual. Our natural spring water boasts healing properties which can treat cuts and scratches completely after several dips in the bath. Yunogo Hot Spring has been known locally for its healing power since ancient times.
- Why not have a bath more than once?
- Enjoy Onsen
Many people have a dip a couple of times a day to make the most of the waters’ beautifying and therapeutic effects. Have a leisurely soak in our ryokan’s large public baths and private baths attached to the guest rooms, as well as in a hidden Yunogo neighbourhood hot spring.
Even the locals are impressed by the beatiful starry night of Yunogo saying, “It feels like we are on the top of a mountain or floating on the sea!” A steamy soak in an outdoor bath with a stunning view of the garden will give you a deep sense of gratitude for being in Japan.

It is a grand public bath with a floor-to-ceiling window through which you can view the garden whilst taking a leisurely soak. The granite for the flooring is from the Northern Okayama area. It was chosen for its look as well as for better grip to prevent slippage.

Our sauna is favoured especially by our female guests. As it is only heated up to 45℃, there isn’t much burden on the body. The room is laid with 13 kinds of natural mineral stones whose qualities radiate a healing power in all directions. It is effective for skin cleansing, detoxification and said to improve back and joint pain and boneache.
