We are a small and cozy Japanese style inn built in Genroku period (1688-1703). It is a 3-story wooden building with 11 guest rooms. All rooms are Japanese style. Sitting on the tatami floor and sleeping in the futon on tatami, you can experience the traditional Japan.

Our bath is natural hot spring. We are part of the nostalgic Japanese spa town Shibu Onsen, which was called Hirao Onsen a long time ago. Shibu Onsen originated in the year 1303, when priests from temples in Kyoto discovered the healing effects of the local hot springs. You can either enjoy a very relaxing time in our indoor bath, or go to other public baths in the neighborhood. There are 9 hot spring public bath-houses and 2 foot bath places along the street, free entrance for staying guests.

Our expert chef prepares delicious Japanese cuisines for our guests. You will find a meal after a hot bath especially enjoyable. .Breakfast is Japanese style, 1050yen. Dinner is also Japanese style. A standard meal is 3150yen. Beef shabushabu courses cost 5250yen. Steak courses cost 6300yen.
