Kyotango City is rich with natural landscapes such as the sea, the mountains, and the highlands. Traditionally, people living in this area have been changing their clothes, food, and the entire life style according to the natural environment that changes along with the four seasons.

At your ryokan, you can experience programs unique to Kyotango with its natural wonders and traditional lifestyles. Right here at the Ryokan, you got the best hot spring baths and the finest dining around. Soak in the soothing hot waters of Taiza Onsen and savour the freshest local seafood. Taiza crab is known as the finest around  and the owner of the Inn heads out to auctions to select the absolute cream of the crop. Immerse yourselves in the beauty of nature and try wearing the kimono here with the beautiful scenery, or try vegetable picking such as fresh tomatoes, corn, potherb mustard and more.
