Escape to Soothing Waters at Ashinomaki Onsen
Terraced baths, traditional music, and culinary delights
Ookawaso Ryokan is a traditional Japanese inn in the Ashinomaki Onsen area, nestled in a peaceful river gorge. The inn offers many scenic hot spring baths for taking in forest views as you soak. The Shiki Butai Tanada baths are designed to look like terraced rice paddies, while the Kuchu Rotemburo overlooks the fast-flowing river below.
Visitors are housed in two wings: the Yoimachitei, with modern touches, and the more traditional Tsukimitei. At mealtime, diners feast on regional specialties like Fukushima beef and seafood, served with a wide range of local produce. All guests can enjoy a live shamisen performance in the hotel’s roomy lobby from 4:00 to 6:00 P.M daily.
From Tokyo Station, take the Shinkansen bullet train to Koriyama Station (about 80 minutes). From Koriyama Station, take the Aizu Express to Aizu-Wakamatsu (about 65 minutes), then the Tadami Line and Aizu Railway to Ashinomaki Onsen Station (about 60 minutes).
