Hot Spring Accommodation Amakazarisansou

Amakazari Onsen is a secluded hot spring at the Echigo trailhead of Mt. Amakazari, one of the famed One Hundred Mountains of Japan.

Amakazari Onsen is located on the Echigo-side trailhead of Mt. Amakazari, a beautiful twin-peaked mountain (1,963 m) counted among the One Hundred Mountains of Japan and situated inside the Myoko-Togakushi renzan National Park. Since its opening in 1880, the hot spring inn has withstood heavy snows and offered shelter to many mountain climber guests under its thick pillars and beams. The hot spring bubbling forth from rocks is one of its attractions, with the outdoor Miyako-Wasure-no-Yu bath offering a perfect space for relaxing after descending the mountain. When climbing Mt. Amakazari and the Kubiki mountains (including Mt. Myoko, Mt. Hiuti and Mt. Yakeyama), please make use of the inn as a spot to enjoy the hot spring and cuisine that features wild mountain plants.

Message from the Facility

The mountain cottage lights go out at 9:00 pm. It is a secluded hot spring inn, free of televisions and ringing mobile phones.

You will sleep like a log at night and never wonder what you should do next. I have come to understand this as the natural effect of living close to nature.

Why not treat yourself to a day surrounded by nature and nothing else?
