Aizu, Ashinomaki Hot Spring, Osawaso
A hot spring ryokan that has become a topic of conversation due to its resemblance to the setting of a blockbuster anime.
Ashinomaki hot spring is located along the Okawa River valley, where the rapidstream had created strange rocks and cliffs, and is said to have been opened about 1,200 years ago. Facing the Agawa River, "Okawaso" is a hot spring ryokan where guests can enjoy the beauty of the valley from their guest rooms and outdoor hot spring baths.
Upon entering the inn, the first thing that catches your eyes is the atrium lobby connected by a staircase from the basement to the first floor. The "floating stage" in the middle of the staircase used for events, and the intricate Japanese-style appearance resembles the "Infinity Castle," the headquarters of the demons that appear in the popular animation, "Demon Slayer" has become a hot topic on SNS. Shamisen (three-stringed Japanese banjo) performances are held daily on the floating stage, which is also popular.
The open-air baths boasting a view are also not to be missed. The "Shikibutai Tanada," with its tiered bathtubs reminiscent of terraced rice paddies, and the "Aerial Open-air Bath," with its bathtubs rising out of the valley like a stage of Kiyomizu at Kiyomizu temple in Kyoto, allow you to enjoy the seasonal beauty of the valley from the indoor baths as well. The meals are called kaiseki cuisine using seasonal ingredients from Aizu. The most popular Japanese-style room, "Yoimachi Tei" is available in a variety of room types, including corner rooms and rooms with two adjoining rooms, and the newly renovated twin rooms.
