山の神温泉 優香苑 Yukaen

Yukaen / Iwate Hanamaki・Kitakami・Tono 2


Yuukaen is located in the middle of Hanamaki-minami hot springs. Wrapped in the colors of each season and the warmth of the trees, time flows slowly.

The building is filled with light from the Miyadaiku beams. The latticed, coffered ceiling and sliding screens are implemented with skillful work. If one spends time in this room that cuts through perpetual time, one can probably heal the day's weariness with nature.

One may use any of our four kind of luxuriously natural hot springs. Their water has a thickness to it, like being submerged in lotion. If one looks up, one may see the Hanamaki night sky also beloved by Kenji Miyazawa. We hope you enjoy bathing with the whispering or Toyosawagawa River in the background.

Meals use a heaping of seasonal, local Iwate ingredients. One may savor the highest grade products that contain the heart and soul of the chef. Please help yourself to seasonal vegetables and the fresh bounty of the sea.

The summer greenery, autumnal leaves, powder snow: The spacious gardens that change their shape with each season are waiting for you. Be sure to come for a moment and, without thinking, take a deep breath of the crisp, clean air.

A day off that will heal your body and mind is here for you where you can live together with Mother Nature in the hot spring town of Hanamaki, Iwate.

It was a very nice inn. The accompanying couple was very pleased. I was disappointed to say that the public bath is being renovated, but thank you very much for sending me back to the hot spring facility on the day trip. Also, I would like to use it when traveling in that direction.

There are two things I noticed. It was good that one room was large. However, there were two room of the bed room between the boards and the room of the tatami, but because there were no indoor slippers, the bed room between the boards felt bare feet with a cold foot. There are steps of several centimeters in front of the entrance of the 2 male public bath. The foot is a few centimeters but a few centimeters, and there is a possibility of falling.

You can enjoy 4 kinds of source spring hot springs. We are proud of the trotted fountain quality exceeding ph of 9 like skin lotion.

◆Toyosawa no yu Open air bath
The biggest open air bath in the area. Please feel the refreshing feeling with a spacious open-air outdoor bath.

◆Yotosawa no Yu Indoor bath
A ceiling that is high enough to look up. A background picture spreading throughout the wall makes the journey deeper. Why not immerse yourself in a natural hot spring where the smell of sulfur fills the atmosphere of the bathhouse.

◆Komorebi no Yu Open air bath
It's as if you are enjoying a hot bath in a galaxy. The galaxy of Hanamaki loved by Miyazawa Kenji spreads there. Natural hot spring flows from the open-air bath and deepens a sense of unity with nature. 

◆Komorebi no Yu Indoor bath
In the morning and afternoon, the atmosphere similar to a garden terrace overflows. Because spring fountain is higher than Tayosawa Noguchi, you can also enjoy the half bath and foot bath. The background picture and the nature of the Toyokawa River give a peaceful dance.
