Hot Spring Accommodation Sasakuraonsen Ryuunsou

Sasakuraonsen Ryuunsou
Beauty-enhancing hot water gushes from three springs against the backdrop of Mt. Yakeyama in Niigata.

Sasakura Onsen Ryuunso should be regarded as a base for climbing Mt. Yakeyama and Mt. Hiuchi in Myoko-Togakushi renzan National Park, as well as for nature walks or mountain skiing. There are abundant sodium hydrogen carbonate springs (once known as sodium bicarbonate springs), famed as smooth, beauty-enhancing baths. Traces of thermal baths from olden days remain, with continually flowing bathwater. The inn is a member of the Japan Association of Secluded Hot Spring Inns. The hot spring water can even be drunk, letting you experience the power of the hot springs internally. Our cooking makes use of hot spring water to create mild dishes that bring out the savoriness of the ingredients. Be sure to try the onsen onigiri (hot spring rice balls) cooked in the hot spring water, along with local sake from the five Itoigawa breweries.

The pastoral landscape viewed from the lobby is unchanged from olden days, but reveals a different expression for each season. You will want to bathe again and again in the bath, which boasts truly silky-smooth, beauty-enhancing water. You can enjoy three different baths, each with a charm of its own: Ryuun-no-Yu, Senju-no-Yu (with outside view), and Senju-no-Yu (with continually flowing water). Here you can enjoy hot spring water three ways: bathing in the water, drinking the water, and eating cuisine made with the water. Why not come and experience Sasakura Onsen for yourself? We look forward to your visit.
