A Warming Lodge Above the Clouds

Unkai-no-Yu, our open-air bath boasting an amazing panoramic view.
The views of the majestic mountains, the sea of clouds below you,
the beautiful unspoiled landscapes of Japan are joined by food made using fresh, seasonal Niigata ingredients to offer a truly relaxing experience.

Open-air bath overlooking the sea of clouds

Shibatouge Onsen is second to none,
blessed by a wealth of high quality water gushing from the hot springs.
Ease into the healing waters and soothe yourself, body and soul,
in our open-air bath as you gaze out over the mountains,
ridges outlined along the horizon as far as the eye can see.

A feast for the eyes as well

Enjoy an array of dishes,
each one crafted lovingly with exquisite attention to detail,
using generous amounts of carefully-selected seasonal local specialities.

Rooms to relax at ease in

With a superb location overlooking the mountains and rice terraces below,
guests can enjoy the famous “unkai” or “sea of clouds” from their rooms.

Open-air baths with view of the mountains

We welcome non-guests to use our baths as well.
You can dine or rest in our “Miharashi” dining room.
Feel free to visit on your way to or from skiing or sightseeing.
