The Ryokan is located near the Senbon Park at the foot of Mt. Yoshino National Park, and is an easily accessible, two minutes walk from the Cable Sanjo Station making it ideally situated for Mt. Yoshino sightseeing.
The main annex provides breathtaking views of Mt. Yoshino from all windows, and our log annex has been constructed from local Yoshino cedar and Japanese cypress.
