The ryokan is located in the middle of the Japan Alps. It originated as a simple lodging for climbers, but slowly came in for great popularity among onsen lovers. The ryokan operates in a traditional Japanese style.

Three outdoor baths are original, if not small, and are designed to be used by families and couples. You don't have to pay any additional cost to use them.

When you are using a bath, you simply place a small sign out that states "I am in."
