A 140-year-old hot spring inn frequented by Japan's influential figures!
Nestled among the hot-spring inns of Higashiyama Onsen in Aizu-Wakamatsu City, 'Mukaitaki' Ryokan is something of a local legend. During the Edo Period (1603 – 1868) the complex was a retreat for local feudal lords of the Aizu domain. For the last 140 years, it has functioned as an elegantly styled traditional hot-spring inn, visited by many important historical figures from doctors and poets and Prime Ministers. Guests can choose to stay in one of 24 classic Japanese style rooms, each with access to the mineral rich hot-spring baths. Private indoor baths are also available. The decadent meals are made with high-quality seasonal local produce from the Aizu area and feature delicious regional delicacies. For the quintessential Japanese experience, guests can also reserve a private performance from the authentic Geisha of Higashiyama Onsen, entertaining guests with traditional shamisen performances and dances depicting the dramatic local history of Aizu (please inquire at reservation).
