    This long-established inn in Misasa Hot Spring is also a Nationally Registered Tangible Cultural Property. Visitors can enjoy the tasteful atmosphere and private water source on a day trip. The hot spring water of the “Ashimoto Yushutu Onsen” that flows from between the natural rocks can be enjoyed at the “Gankutu no yu”.

    Ryokan Ohashi is a traditional Japanese onsen hotel, quite commonplace in my opinion. We picked it because the alternatives looked even less promising. Very polite staff, normal room (a bit dated...

    Tottori Tohaku-gun Misasacho Yamada 5
    A hot spring hotel at Misasa Onsen, one of the world's leading radioactive springs, with a high concentration of radon. You'll have a superb stay with top class hospitality, and cuisine that's produced locally for local consumption. The spacious bathhouses switch between men's and women's bathing areas in the morning and evening. You'll revel in the hot spring water flowing freely from the facility's three thermal sources. Steam from the radium spring rises from the indoor bath, and you can feel the healing properties inside the body every time you breathe. Misasa Onsen, with its over 800 year history, got its name from a legend that said that people soaking there would be cured of illness on the morning of the third day (the Chinese characters for Misasa mean three mornings).

    We were a group of 5 and we had booked a room with a private onsen. The staff were very attentive. Before we even asked, they brought us a wheelchair given we had an elderly travelling with us. The...

    At this hot spring inn guests can enjoy water flowing directly from two hot spring sources into all the baths. Day trips to the onsen are also available and the outdoor bath overlooking the lake is popular. It is said to be a bath for beautiful skin as the water incorporates a large amount of metasilicate, a component for beautiful skin.

    I went there with my wife for a couple of days and absolutely loved it. The rooms are nice and clean and smell fantastic. The hotel staff are chirpy and talkative and make you feel comfortable from...

    Tottori Kurayoshi-shi Sakaemachi 1-876
    A restaurant with an old-fashioned look founded over 100 years ago in the Meiji period. It's about 10 minutes by car from Kurayoshi Station. They serve shabu-shabu (thinly sliced meat boiled with vegetables and dipped in sauce) set meals and rice bowl dishes you can dine on along a street with white walled storehouses. Their specialty is Mochi Shabu, featuring colorful mochi rice cakes resembling a twelve-layered ceremonial kimono. You dip the items in a skipjack tuna broth. The tasty and satisfyingly filling mochi is made with ingredients like carrots, shiitake mushrooms, matcha tea, and yuzu citron. Thinly cut and visually pleasing with subtle colors, it's become a hot topic in various magazines and on social media.

    We had dinner here and ordered a set of colourful Mochi plus beef Shabu Shabu for 2,160 yen. Cosy place and tasty food.

Originally the family temple of Nakamura Hikozaemon Kazushige, lord of Numazu Castle in Suruga Province (now Shizuoka Prefecture) and called the Keikyuji, the temple was moved to what is now Yabase when Nakamura was forcibly relocated here by the government. Satomi Tadayoshi, the last lord of Tateyama Castle in Awa Province (now Chiba Prefecture), whose tale served as the basis for Takizawa Bakin's novel ""Nanso Satomi hakkenden"", is buried on the grounds. Eight of his retainers are also buried here, and eight stone statues of dogs face the graves.

    A restaurant located in front of Mitokusan Sanbutsu-ji Temple, famous for its cliff-face Nageire-do Hall. With an old-fashioned look, the shop serves coffee, red bean soup, Mitoku tofu, and their specialty cuisine featuring wild vegetables.
