Hot Spring / Hot Spring Bath
A long-standing hotel established in 1917. The 165 thousand square meter hotel grounds sprawl in a quiet, natural forest. The hotel was formerly the Maruo Ryokan inn, where famous authors and poets such as Akiko Yosano, Mokichi Saito, and Ujo Noguchi stayed and left their handwritten works. The hotel’s bathhouse is supplied by a simple spring and a simple sulfur spring, and bathers can relax in a large indoor bath or outdoor bath. The waters of the simple spring can also be drunk for health benefits. The bathhouse is open to non-guests, and the hotel also boasts four outdoor baths which can be privately reserved for ultimate relaxation. The hotel serves traditional Japanese kaiseki course cuisine made with seasonal ingredients from Kagoshima.
