Yamaguchiya Bekkan

5081-3 Tawarayama, Nagato, Yamaguchi 山口屋別館


Enjoy a private bath in a famous medical onsen

With its secluded location in the mountains, Tawarayama Onsen is a rare hot spring district that retains an old onsen town atmosphere.

The town is known as a place for balneotherapy resorts. Most of the lodgings here do not have indoor baths on-site, as they opt to preserve the practice of visiting various communal baths as a form of therapy.

The strongly alkaline simple spring water has a pH of 9.8 and is renowned for helping relieve nerve and joint pain. Many visitors stay here for long periods to take advantage of the onsen’s healing benefits.

Since being featured in the famous Lonely Planet travel guide book, Tawarayama Onsen has also seen a rise in foreign tourists in recent years.

Yamaguchiya Bekkan is one of the rare types of lodge in Tawarayama Onsen, as it features an indoor bath on its site.

The lodge has one big and one small private bath, and is popular with families with children, tattooed guests, and visitors with surgical scars or other inhibitions.

The lodge has 6 guest rooms, two of which are pet-friendly. It is especially popular with people who want to stay for long periods for therapy but are hesitant to leave their pets home alone. They even accept large breeds of dogs.

They offer various accommodation plans, including multiple night stays for therapy-goers and special plans that feature exquisite gourmet meals. You can choose one that suits your budget and purpose.

This place is perfect if you want to enjoy a famous hot spring in a quiet environment without any inhibitions. You can surely have a refreshing experience for your mind and body.
