This time, I would like to introduce you to “萃 Suwako” from Suwa City, Nagano Prefecture.
It’s a great place to spend a memorable time with your loved ones while enjoying the view of Lake Suwa.
The hotel is located in the heart of Suwa Lake, just a short walk from the Suwa River.
Location of Suwa Lake
Set in Suwa, Shinshu, also known as the “belly button” of Japan, the resort hotel “Euscaphis Suwa” is a place to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and enjoy a private moment of relaxation.
The open-air bath with a view of Suwa Lake is an infinity-style bath that allows you to become one with the lake, and by harmonizing with the lake that stretches far into the distance, you will be able to manifest your true self, something that cannot be obtained in your daily life.
By train, it takes about 2 hours and 30 minutes from Shinjuku, Tokyo via the Azusa Limited Express train on the Chuo Main Line, and about 2 hours and 45 minutes from Osaka via the Shinano Limited Express train on the Chuo Main Line.
Inside the hotel, the artistic beauty of Japanese art has been incorporated into every detail, not to mention the rooms, which are simple yet particular about materials such as white wood, plaster, and natural wood.
The charm of Suwa Lake
At Euscaph, you can enjoy hot spring water from the famous Kamisuwa Onsen Nanatsugama source in all of the baths, including the “Watashizuku” open-air bath with a panoramic view of Lake Suwa.
The open-air bath overlooking Lake Suwa is also available in all eight guest rooms.
The spring is a hypotonic, weakly alkaline hot spring, so even women and children can bathe without worry.
Rooms at Suwa Lake
All guest rooms have an open-air bath with a spring-fed shower and a view of the mysterious Suwa Lake spreading out before you.
The hotel offers two types of guest rooms: the “Wide Type” with a chic interior design, and the “Standard Type” with the smell of natural wood that has been stripped down to the essentials.
The wide type rooms are 75 square meters in size, and the standard type rooms are 45 square meters.
The cuisine of Suwa Lake
You can indulge your taste buds in “Kangi-no-zen”, a kaiseki cuisine that combines delicious local seasonal ingredients with Shinshu Suwa’s unique cooking methods, artisanal techniques and time and effort.
You don’t have to worry about anyone’s eyes as the space is completely private.
For breakfast, you can enjoy health-conscious hometown cuisine with an old-fashioned country feel.

What do you think? In this article, I have introduced Euscaphum Suwa.
The word “萃” has the meanings of gathering, thickening, and hot springs.
The gods that protect Suwa Taisha gather here, and people also gather here as if they are being guided, and the hot springs that you enjoy while surrounded by the sacred Suwa Lake are a luxurious experience.
We hope you will take this opportunity to visit Euscui Suwa-ko.
