Hijiori Onsen

A Ryokan is a traditional Japanese Inn. Our Inn is locatd in the famous hamlet of Hijiori Onsen, in the scenic Dewa -sanchi mountains of Yamagata Prefecture, Japan. This is very close to the Shonai District and is in the Mogami District, both of which were written about in the famous James Carvel novel "Shogun" about 17th Century Japan.

Our history is very old, dating back some 1200 years. Legend has it that a famous lord travelling in the mountains of Yamagata Prefecture discoverd the Onsen(Japanese for Hot Springs) and when he bathed in the water a miraculous thing happened; his elbow which had previously been broken, was suddenly healed. In fact our little hamlet took its name from this legend. Hijiori means broken elbow. Many locals and visitors travel from far and wide to experience the therapeutic effects of our wate.We invite you to come and stay at our lovely Japanese Country Style Inn and experience our hospitality and special ambience.

Our Inn is located on th Dozan River which flows to the famous 'Mighty' Mogami River. At our hotel you will enjoy the finest Japanese country style cooking which will be served to you while you are seated around a traditional Japanese hearth. We offer the very best of local cuisine including seafood from the nearby Sea of Japan.

Please inquire about special services offered for stays over two nights We look forward to greeting all travellers and helping to make their stay in Japan very special.
