Natural Hot-springs

Open-air hot-spring baths with views of a Teien-style Japanese garden

A long time ago, in around 1624, people began to make frequent use of the hot-springs in this area. These hot springs quickly gained a good reputation and a popular hot-spring resort was built that attracted visitors from far away. The hot water here contains a variety of minerals that help to warm your body and keep you feeling relaxed even after getting out of the bath. Along with an open-air hot-spring bath that is separated into sections for men and women and has a view of our traditional Japanese garden in the Teien-style, every room has a natural hot-spring bath.

Each of Japan's four distinct seasons produces a range of different vegetables and fish. Accordingly, we change our menu season by season, always offering something delicious and typically Japanese from Iwate Prefecture. We ask that you eat in our dining room, rather than in your own room, but you can enjoy a meal without being self-conscious as each table is its own private compartment.

How To Enjoy Shidate

Check in is from 3:00 p.m.

On your arrival at Yusen sidate, put your bags down and have a rest in your room before heading to the natural hot spring in our Ryokan. There, let the mineral-rich hot water wash the weariness of your journey away. Once out of the bath, change into the Japanese yukata waiting for you in your room and relax.

Throughout our Ryokan, you will find large windows and comfortable chairs from which you can take in the views of Japanese mountains and rivers. You can pass your time there however you like. The views vary depending on the season, from the fresh green of summer and the multi-colored leaves of autumn to the snow scenes of winter.

At dinner time, please head to our dining room. We offer seasonal Japanese cuisine using vegetables, fish and meat produced in Iwate Prefecture.

All the rooms have twin beds. We wish you a good night's sleep. There is also a bath in every room for you to enjoy.

As you wake up to the sound of the river and the birds singing, we are already preparing your breakfast for you, served in the same dining room as at dinner. You can have a Japanese-style breakfast from 7:30 a.m. to 10:00 a.m.

Check out is at 11:30 a.m.
