Kowakubi Hot Springs Shoho-En

Shoho-en – A hot spring hotel that opened in the location more than 300 years ago. The five fir trees planted at the time are still growing and have become the symbol of the Oyamada family, who contributed to the development of the local community as a wealthy farmers/politicians, as well as being the symbol of Shoho-en. Some of the dishes they serve, such as cooked Japanese mitten crabs and carps in sweet-and-spicy sauce, have an established reputation. Shoho-en is a registered tangible cultural property and a member of the Association for the Protection of Secluded Hot Springs(日本秘湯を守る会). While it only has seven rooms, it is a perfect place for visitors to feel relaxed and forget the hustle and bustle of city life.
