In a corner of the lobby is the bar Jizake no Yakata, where you can enjoy local sake from each of the sake breweries in the Aizu area. The dining space Kakujo was newly opened in April 2009.
Harataki boasts an open-air bath filled with water from its very own hot spring source plus four different types of baths offering a good view and available for private use. Our dinner is another popular attraction: you can enjoy both Otemae-ryori, a traditional Japanese course meal served at the table, as well as a buffet with rice cooked on a traditional kamado kitchen stove, charcoal-grilled dishes, and the local specialties of Aizu. Meals served at the Waterside Dining Kawadoko (a restaurant with outdoor decks built along the bank of the Yukawa River) are very popular during the summer season.

Ashina is a Japanese-style inn that preserves an atmosphere of old-style living in the Tohoku Region. The facility used to be part of a 120-year-old private residence, which was taken apart, moved and then rebuilt at its present location. An overnight stay at this inn will allow guests to experience several different aspects of traditional culture of Aizu, including local cuisine and local sake that can be enjoyed nowhere else. Dinner served around an irori, or sunken hearth, is one of the most notable features of this inn.
Our sister inn, Shintaki, which used to be the resort villa of Lord Matsudaira of the Aizu Domain, was loved and frequented by many of the literati and artists of the Meiji, Taisho, and Showa periods. Here you can enjoy three different hot spring baths piped directly from the natural hot spring source and dine on creative local Aizu cuisine. In the autumn of 2009, we also opened another open-air bath.

An affiliated inn of Harataki, Konjaku-tei is a beautiful hideaway for travelers.

Our chef's specialty, which changes every day, is one of the greatest appeals of Konjaku-tei. From the early summer, when the outdoor restaurant Waterside Dining Kawadoko opens for the summer, diners can enjoy exquisite meals surrounded by sparkling lights, the sound of a stream, and a pleasant breeze. You are sure to enjoy the special Japanese course menu at Kawadoko.
