Yanagiya is a sea-side hotel ryokan in Shirahama. All rooms and the restaurant have a view over Kanayama Bay including the white Shirarahama beach in the distance. This hot spring has been famous since the 7th century when imperial empresses bathed in these historical waters. The onsen water quality is effective for beautifying the skin. The well located Yanagiya is not only popular with onsen enthusiasts, but also families and couples. There are many family friendly details and services, including cribs to use by your table in the restaurant. Ingredients for meals are sourced from high quality markets focused on fresh marine products.
