The Historic Yumura Hot Spring — healing the mind and body

The Yumura Hot Spring has a 1,200 year history, and is known as a secret bath of Shingen Takeda,
a pre-eminent daimyo of feudal Japan. The spacious men’s common bath has a panoramic window,
and wooden walls and ceiling. An open-air bath can be found outside this in the garden so that you can
relax while enjoying seasonal scenery. The women’s common bath has big sunny window surrounded
by greenery. The open-air bath outside this is made of cypress for a rich wood fragrance.
Please leisurely immersed yourself in our relaxing hot spring bath for refreshment.

of the imperial family, have kakenagashi (hot springs directly from the source) open-air baths and
