Riverside Minshuku

Minshuku Sumiya is a small, casual, laid-back guesthouse. It is situated in the middle of Kawayu Onsen, where hot spring water bubbles to the surface of the river.

A staircase in the center of building is the entrance, which leads to the second floor. Here is the dining room, hot spring baths, and some guestrooms. Further up on the third floor are more guestrooms.
