Located in the place where thatched-roof houses are scattered in the magnificent nature, the Yunishigawa Onsen Resort has a very long history. It is said that about 800 years ago, some members of the Taira (Heike), family that had been defeated in the Battle of Dannoura escaped to the Yunishigawa River, and they discovered the Onsen gushed forth on the river bank and healed their injuries.
The Yunishigawa Onsen Resort is famous for open-air baths allowing visitors to enjoy abundant Onsens and the rustic beauty, as well as hospitality with “Irori Ryori,” local dishes served by the fireside. In the ryokans of this resort, visitors can feel the atmosphere and history unique to the little-known Onsen, and can have the experience that goes beyond the space and time.
