Attractions of Ryokan Sanga

The inn has many attractions, such as relaxing guest rooms and delicious meals, but the “seven hot springs” that blend into the forest are especially popular.
Visitors can enjoy a hot spring tour while staying at the inn by visiting the hot springs scattered throughout the vast grounds of 3,000 tsubo.
The greatest feature is that the inn has two sources of hot spring water: “Yakushi no Yu,” a simple sulfur spring, and “Mihama no Yu,” a hot spring for beautiful skin that contains sodium chloride, hydrogen carbonate, and sulfate springs.
In the large “Yakushi no Yu” baths, which are separate for men and women, the hot spring water is free-flowing and gently warms the skin and body from the core.
The “Moyai-no-yu” is a mixed bathing open-air bath where you can almost hear the whispering of the trees.
The clear bluish water can also be enjoyed as an utase (a kind of hot spring bath), and is said to be popular among hot spring fans.
