Feel the changing of the seasons in the wind,
and let the hues of the natural scenery restore you

Surrender yourself to the tranquility of time
in the heart of the mountains

Otani Sanso stands as if wrapped in the surrounding foothills,
with a total of 107 rooms built alongside the flow of the Otozure River.
From the new green of spring, the fragrance of summer's deep jade; to the autumn painted scarlet,
and the winter that weaves a quiet passing of time...
We invite you to spend time with us, unwinding in peace and tranquility as you enjoy the changing of the seasons.

Rooms with Private Outdoor Baths

18 rooms in which to immerse yourself in naturally flowing hot spring waters, and feel the changing seasons on your skin.

We offer 8 guest rooms with four different scenic views: the mountain-side, wrapped in lush green; alongside the river, where a pleasant breeze blows from the water; and the mountain stream-side, with the stars and the ridge of the mountains above, and the Otozure River flowing below.
