Description

The Ikaho Hot Springs have a history that dates back to the year 585. Yokotekan, established in the 1710s, was originally a hatago, a type of lodging for travelers that provided them with a place to rest and meals to eat.
The main building, built in 1920, is a four-story building, made entirely of Japanese cypress wood. It is one of the few cypress buildings that have been preserved to date, inviting guests to enjoy the warmth of bark.
Guest rooms in the western unit of the main building are in a traditional Japanese style, each elegantly made with an elaborate design. Shared toilets and washrooms are located along the corridor.
Guest rooms in the eastern unit of the main building are Japanese-Western style refurbished in 2010. The rooms are comfortably designed using the pillars and ceilings from the original building. Each guest room has a toilet and a washroom.
The annex Tokiwaen was renovated in 1994, and is built with reinforcing steel. Each guest room has a toilet, a washroom, and a bath, though not hot spring.
Enjoy a large communal bath with the free-flowing reddish-brown “golden” water, coming directly from a hot spring.
