Riverside Onsen Ryokan

Kawayu Midoriya is one of the larger hotels in Kawayu Onsen and is located at the west end of the village. 

There is a mixture of Japanese and Western style rooms.  Most Japanese style rooms look directly over the clear waters of the Oto River, which flows through the village. 

Behind the hotel there are two mixed gender rock baths nestled in the river bank.  An evening soak, enjoying the natural surroundings, is a popular highlight for guests.

Go To Travel Campaign

The Go To Travel Campaign is an initiative of the federal government of Japan to support the tourism industry which has been hard hit by the Covid-19 pandemic.  When you book via the KUMANO TRAVEL Community Reservation System (managed by the The Tanabe City Kumano Tourism) we are receiving the financial support aid on behalf of you and relaying this funding onto the local service providers. 

This Campaign in only for Japanese citizens or foreign residence of Japan.

IMPORTANT: Cancellation fees are applied as to the terms and conditions of booking based on the original price plan before the discount.
