    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...

    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...

    This taiyaki fish-shaped cake shop is practically the first establishment anyone who lives in Kurayoshi will name when asked about Taiyaki. The shop sells taiyaki roasted the old fashioned way one cake at a time in individual iron molds. While taiyaki are usually a gold-brown in color, this shop's taiyaki are white. Stuffed with lightly sweet bean paste filling, they have a thin outer crust that is crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside. The shop also has tables inside where you can enjoy your taiyaki on the spot. Many of the shop's customers buy large quantities to take home and enjoy, and/or are frequent buyers who come here from far and wide.

    "This ancient Soto Buddhist temple was founded in 1605. 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. An ancient Ming China Sancai bowl, which records state was willed to the temple by Satomi Tadayoshi, has been designated a Protected Cultural Property by the prefecture."

    Tottori Pref. Touhakugunmisasachou Mitoku 1010
    This is a temple of the Tendai Buddhist sect, with grounds on the 900 meters Mt. Mitoku. It is said that Enno Oguno was opened as a gyoba (practice site) for Shugendo mountain asceticism in 706, though details are scarce. It is famous for the Nageiredo sub temple built into the crevice of a sheer cliff, and even today details of the building method are not fully revealed making it a national treasure. Aside from the main temple, the grounds are dotted with halls designated important cultural properties including those for Monjudo and Jizodo. In the Homotsuden (treasure house) is Nageiredo’s original object of worship, a wooden standing statue of Zao Gongen. *Climbing to Nageiredo is currently prohibited because of the Tottori Prefecture Chubu Earthquake.

    Tottori Pref. Kurayoshishi Shinmachi Around
    "Shirakabe traditional warehouse district of Kurayoshi City is located around 40 minutes' drive from either the Yubara Interchange or the Hiruzen Interchange of the Yonago Expressway. Known as ""Little Kyoto"" because of its elegant appearance, the warehouse district has traditional white-walled warehouse buildings and stone bridges crossing the Tamagawa River that flows through the city, creating a magical retro atmosphere; this is one of the most Important Preservation Districts for Groups of Traditional Buildings. Most of the warehouse buildings-which combine black walls made from burnt cedar wood with white wall plaster and red Sesshu tiled roofs-were built in the Edo period (1603-1868) or the Meiji period (1868-1912). Several of the warehouses have been refurbished inside, such as Akagawara Ichigokan (which now houses several first-rate shops selling local specialty products); others are now used as cafes, art galleries, etc."

    This is a temple established at 900 meters height situated in Mt. Mitoku. The building is built protruding from a steep cliff wall, and is designated as a National Treasure.

    A day trip hot spring bath facility in the center of the Misasa Onsen hot spring district in Misasa Town, Tohaku County Tottori Prefecture. The bathhouse’s waters are drawn from a natural radon hot spring; the facility’s name is a reference to the fact that it is said they are said to have been a gift from a bodhisattva. An old-fashioned community-maintained bathhouse facility recently remodeled, bathers can enjoy baths constantly replenished from the natural source for a reasonable fee. There’s also a shop selling souvenirs and hot spring merchandise, as well as a rest area and café space. The adjoining tourist information center provides useful area info.
