About
Description
Ashitanomori, our most distinctive guesthouse, is located along the Oto River in Kawayu, nationally famous for its unique hot springs. At Ashitanomori, you will enjoy a casual, informal stay in Kawayu in an More atmosphere of beautiful and peaceful nature. Here in Kawayu spa, hot mineral waters come up from the riverbed. Right in front of our inn, by the river, you choose a likely spot and dig out a natural “hot tub” along the riverside and wait for it to fill with hot water and your own private outdoor bath. We have all the tools you need to get you started. In summer, you can enjoy both swimming in the river’s cold water and relaxing in open-air hot springs. In winter, a magnificent huge open-air hot spring, called SENNINBURO, is waiting for you. The name is a play on the word for ‘thousand’, a reference to the fact that you could squeeze about 1000 bathers into this open-air tub. Less
