Message from the Facility
Lake Towada, a national park clothed in the colors of the seasons, is a location where nature can be fully enjoyed. Near the inn is the Oirase River, which flows from Lake Towada over rocks and through a forest, forming waterfalls and rapids. The stream flows about 14 km from Nenokuchi at lakeside to Yakeyama. Relax at our inn, while taking in the beautiful seasons and abundant nature of Lake Towada and the Oirase stream.
