Aizu area (Western area)


Okawaso is located in the Ashinomaki Hot Spring resort nestled along the beautiful valley of Okawa River. As you step into this inn, you will be welcomed by a live performance on the shamisen, a traditional Japanese stringed instrument. Attentive service is provided by female attendants (called nakai-san) dressed in kimono, which is another of the charms of this old-fashioned Japanese inn. For dinner, you can enjoy a Japanese-style set menu rich in locally produced ingredients. The open-air hot spring facility Shiki Butai Tanada consists of multi-level baths set up like terraced rice fields overlooking the valley. Here you can enjoy basking amid the beautiful nature of the valley. Okawaso also has large baths and lie-down saunas, both of which are perfect for relaxing and soothing the body. Another open-air bath Kuchu Roten Buro looks similar to the famous stage of Kiyomizu Temple in Kyoto and commands a magnificent view. After enjoying dinner and hot spring bathing, guests can experience a mochi (rice cake) pounding event, which is a typically Japanese traditional communal activity. When the pounding is completed, freshly-made mochi will be served to the participants on the spot. Please enjoy to the full everything that a Japanese-style hot spring resort hotel has to offer.
