The impressive modern architecture is perched at the mouth of Itamuro Onsen town. Also known as “Shimotsuke medical bath”, it is set in a ravine at the foot of the Nasu mountain range. The rooms in Yamaki are crafted with walls made from diatomaceous earth and various wood that creates a warm and calm atmosphere, each equipped with bicycle stands. The ryokan accommodates their guests’ needs in the sure fashion of Japanese hospitality. There are two onsens, indoor and outdoor, as well as a standing bath traditional to Itamuro. All are free-flowing from natural springs.
Get a feel for the simple and quiet minded sensibilities that mark Japan, what is known as wabisabi.
