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.

Vegetarianism is not common in the Japanese countryside. Please double-check the Vegetarian Type which the service provider can accommodate to make sure that it meets your needs. Often being able to eat trace amounts of the ubiquitous Katsuo Dashi (fish stock) makes it easier to find options.
NOTE: It is difficult and not culturally sensitive to change meal requests, or make new meal demands, onsite when you arrive at accommodations. Vegetarian types must be confirmed during the reservation process and respected during your visit.
