Taenoyu 乳頭温泉郷 妙乃湯
Relaxing ryokan lodgings in an idyllic hot springs setting
Overlooking the Sendatsu River, Taenoyu is a rustic and secluded hot springs lodging with world-renowned hospitality. Overlooking a cascading waterfall, the mixed gender outdoor onsen allows for tranquil repose, while the segregated indoor baths are famous for their rejuvenating properties.
The inn's spacious 17 Japanese-style rooms are light and airy. Elegant wooden interiors lend a warm ambiance while floor-to-ceiling windows offer generous views of the mountainous and woodland surrounds. Of special note are Akita Prefecture specialties such as kiritampo nabe, a local hotpot featuring heirloom chicken, seasonal vegetables and freshly cooked rice worked into cylindrical shapes.
