Iyashi no Onsen-kyō

Hotel in Higashi Iya

Off the main road between Kyōjō and the Higashi Iya vine bridges is this lovely and unpretentious hotel and hot-springs complex, with Japanese- and Western-style rooms, an onsen and a restaurant. A smattering of Japanese-language skills would be helpful here. Nonguests can eat at the attractive restaurant. They also run an intriguing 4.6km monorail up into the mountains.
