This distinctive onsen (hot spring) has five different bathing areas and it is located along the Sendatsu River's wooded slopes. They are rotated each night so that both men and women can enjoy each one. The gender-neutral open-air bathroom has an infinity pool-like effect and looks out over a massive waterfall at the edge of the area. One indoor bath is almost like an open-air bath itself, with views of the forest outside its wooden overhang. It has a rock-lined edge and water that is an orange-golden color.

Another indoor bath has clear water and stones in it, and when you press your feet on the bottom of the bath, you get a foot massage. In the dining area with views of the mountains, take pleasure in leisurely breakfasts and afternoon tea. Enjoy multi-course dinners paired with nihonshu, a native sake made in Akita from rice cultivated there and pure spring water.

It features an Onsen (Hot spring bath) and it is considered one of the best in the area with 2 indoor and 3 outdoor and 2 mixed open-air baths. Dinner and Breakfast is also included with a Kaiseki style dinner using high quality local ingredients. Amazing scenery looking out into the woods creates a calmy sensation.”
