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.

Read more まず初めに、連休でお忙しい中でしたが、快くお誕生日のサプライズにご協力くださいまして、本当に本当にありがとうございました!(*^^*) 前日に風船とケーキを持ち込みましたが、駐車場から歩いているのを見ていたのか、お宿に入る前にスタッフの方が駆け寄って下さいました。お電話でご相談した方ではない方だったので、スタッフ同士の情報共有が出来ているのだなぁと感動しました! 当日、お部屋にご案内していただいたスタッフさんも、主賓が一番先に装飾を見れるよう、自然に誘導してくださいました。(本来は先導してくれるのだと思いますが、彼が自然に襖を開けるようにご案内して下さいました!) そしてまるっとお願いしてしまった飾り付けですが、想像以上に華やかにしていただき、主賓よりも興奮して感極まり、思わず涙目になってしまいました(笑) 彼も装飾が大規模すぎて、頭の中を整理するのに時間がかかったようでした!(笑) お夕食の際もスタッフさまからのお祝いのお言葉をいただいたのも嬉しかったです。(本当に情報共有が素晴らしいです!) お会計もお夕食後にすぐ精算が出来るように手配していただき、ありがとうございました。 忙しい時期に図々しいお願いをすることに、とても気が引けてお宿選びに悩んだのですが、最初のお電話でのご相談から、最後のチェックアウトまで快く対応していただき、「このお宿に決めて、サプライズの相談をしてみて本当によかった!!」と思いました! 自分の計画や準備だけでは決してなし得ない、優香苑さまのご協力があってこその記念日でした!スタッフのみなさまの優しさが一生忘れられません。 本当に本当に、ご協力ありがとうございました! ぜひまたご利用させてください!(*^^*)

First of all, I was very busy during the consecutive holidays, but thank you so much for your generous birthday surprise! (*^^*) I brought in a balloon and cake the day before, but maybe the staff were running up before I entered the inn, maybe because I was walking from the parking lot. I was impressed that the staff were able to share information because I was not the one who consulted over the phone! On the day of the event, the staff members who guided us to the room naturally guided the guest to see the decoration first. (I think that he will lead us originally, but he guided me to open the fusuma naturally!) And the decoration I asked for was gorgeous than I imagined. I was more excited and excited than the guest of gratitude, and I suddenly felt tears (laughs) He seemed to take too much time to sort out his mind because the decoration was too large! (Laughs) I was happy that the staff members also gave congratulations during dinner. (It's really wonderful to share information!) Thank you for arranging your bill so that you can settle the bill immediately after dinner. I was very reluctant to make a request during the busy season, and I was worried about choosing an inn, but I was happy to respond from the first telephone consultation to the last check-out. It was really nice to have decided on an inn and consulted for a surprise!!" It was a memorial day with the cooperation of Yukaen, who could never do it by her own plans and preparations! I will never forget the kindness of all the staff. Thank you so much for your cooperation! Please use it again! (*^^*)

Read more とても優雅に過ごせました。まずチェックイン30分前に着いたのですが偶然?入口前で優しく声をかけて頂いて荷物を預かってくれました。おかげさまで薔薇の咲いたイングリッシュガーデンの変わった花や立派な木々、ホテルに沿って流れる渓流を満喫できました。ホテルロビーも個性的で写真よりも圧倒されました。ホテル内あちこちの窓からはこの時期であってもただの野山ではなく庭風な風景がとても印象的でした。ホテルや部屋の天井の二の丸風な造りは時代を遡った滞在意識が湧きあがりとても新しい感覚を覚えました。温泉は清潔で露天は広く開放感がありツヤ感たっぷりで夜空も。朝食も美味しかったです。また来たいです、ありがとうございました。

I was able to spend it very elegantly. First of all, I arrived 30 minutes before check-in. He kindly spoke in front of the entrance and kept the luggage. Thanks to you, I enjoyed the unusual flowers in the English garden with roses, the magnificent trees, and the mountain stream flowing along the hotel. The hotel lobby was also unique and overwhelmed by the photos. Even at this time, the garden-like scenery from the windows here and there in the hotel was very impressive. The ninomaru-like structure of the ceiling of the hotel and the room gave rise to a sense of stay that dates back to the times, and gave me a very new feeling. The hot springs are clean, the open air is wide, there is a feeling of openness, and the night sky is full of luster. Breakfast was delicious too. I want to come again, thank you.

I stayed for my birthday and the 25th anniversary celebration. I was very satisfied with the service, bath and meal. I especially thought the breakfast selection and taste were amazing. The hot springs for day trips, which may be walkable in warmer seasons, were very cold, so I was very thankful for the transportation by car. Also, I was very pleased with the celebration wine I received at the time of check-out. "I want to come with the whole family this time," and went home while talking to the husband. Thank you very much.

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.
