This Japanese inn is located in the Northern Yatsugatake, at an elevation of 1,800m. Thanks to its strategic position near the Shibu no Yu trailhead, one of the access points to Mt. Tengu-dake, it is a popular destination among alpinists.
This is one of Takeda Shingen's secret baths, where 500 years ago, the Kai Province lord's samurai warriors healed their wounds after a fight.
It features a special spring called "Shibu Choju-to" (meaning "long life onsen"), which flows naturally to the surface and presents a unique bubbly texture.
