The building and garden of Saya-no-yudokoro

Restaurant Shitensha offers a menu of Japanese soba noodles and seasonal dishes in the atmosphere of a traditional Japanese folk house that was created by renovating an old Showa-era wooden building (by architect Hironobu Furihata). The traditional Japanese garden surrounding the building is the work of garden designer Motomi Oguchi. It displays beautiful garden stones and a karesansui dry landscape garden that enhances the aesthetic appeal of the four seasons.

The hot spring baths

The Saya-no-yu open-air hot spring is a natural hot spring that is fed non-stop directly from a natural source located 1,500 meters underground. The greenish brown tinge of the water comes from its rich sodium chloride content, which is said to provide excellent thermal effect. It is also called "netsu-no-yu" (thermal bath) for this reason, and is also good for neuralgia, chronic rheumatism, and poor circulation.In addition to Saya-no-yu, there are fourteen other types of baths, plus a ganbanyoku hot stone bath (an additional fee is required for the hot stone bath).
