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.
