Laid-back Family-run Japanese Onsen Inn

Ebisuso Ryokan is a hot spring Japanese style inn located in Totsukawa Onsen in Nara Prefecture.  It is a family run establishment hosting guests for over 40 years.  The verdant garden and lantern in the entrance is a landmark in the narrow streets of this mountain settlement overlooking a man-made lake.  Totsukawa Onsen is located along the Kumano Kodo Kohechi pilgrimage route between Hatenashi-toge pass and Miura-toge pass.

Totsukawa Onsen is famous for its high-quality non-circulating mineral water baths, and Ebisuso is no exception.  Soaking in the roof-top outdoor bath is a highlight for many guests.

Supper is focused on locally produced vegetables served with many duck and chicken in a “nabe” or hot pot style dish.  Breakfast also highlights locally catch fish and homemade dishes.  Delicious!

Closed: Irregular holidays
