Hot Springs

Our Bijinyu Hot Springs -
The Pride of Hitoyoshi Ryokan

One of the best things about the bountiful hot springs in Hitoyoshi is that there is enough water available that we are able to continuously feed each bath with fresh hot spring water. The waters are alkaline, fed from sodium hydrocarbonate springs, and have a distinctly silky feeling on the skin. Our springs are famous for their beautifying properties, which they accomplish by softening the keratin in the skin, washing away old keratin, and leaving skin moisturized and beautiful. You can also drink the waters, which is supposed to help improve digestion.

World-famous hot spring expert Tadanori Matsuda selected the hot springs of Hitoyoshi to his list of New Top 100 Hot Springs of Japan. Guests have been enjoying these world-class hot springs for over 80 years here at Hitoyoshi Ryokan, and we are proud to be able to offer fresh hot spring water in our continuously fed baths.

The baths are switched for men and women at different times during the day letting guests enjoy both styles of bath.
