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.

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.

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.

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.
