All rooms are equipped with hot spring baths that pour hot spring water from the source.

A total of 12 rooms are like a detached house by Aizu architecture.
All rooms are equipped with hot spring baths with "Yunokami Onsen hot water" pouring from the source.
Dating back to the Nara period (710-794), Yunokami Onsen is said to have healed wounded monkeys.
