Motoyu Bekkan

Ryujin Onsen Minshuku

Motoyu Bekkan is the "annex" or "bekkan" of the "hot spring source" or "motoyu".  Motoyu is the name of the main public hot spring bath in Ryujin Onsen, famous for its beautifying effects on the skin, which serves as the bathing facility for guests staying at the accommodation. Motoyu Bekkan is located across the river from the main center of Ryujin Onsen via a walking bridge.  All of the rooms are simple Japanese style that look out towards the river.  There is a communal sitting area and basic cooking facilities, although there are no cooking utensils, pots, pans, etc available.  You can bring your own food or eat at the nearby Izakaya Nagomi.
