This plan is not offered in the busy time as new year holidays

Tocen Goshoboh preserves traditional Japanese wooden architecture which is built roughly 100 years ago. There is no elevator and has difference in level on the floor. The architecture reserves the original one as much as possible, there is the squeal of wooden floors. To create a beauty of shading which a great writer Tanizaki Junichiro preferred, the inside is dim during the day. Please enjoy the one and only attraction of Tocen Goshoboh to spend quiet and relaxing time.

The road of hot spring town is slope, good exercise but might be a little hard in a case.

Please follow some instructions to enjoy Onsen. For example, no swimsuits are allowed and avoid bathing right after dining and drinking alcohol for your health.

The hot spring in Tocen Goshoboh has semi-mixed bathing, so men and women can meet at the partition of each bathroom. Please accept this situation.
