Eggplant Hana is a European-style onsen ryokan (hot spring inn) with a southern French design and Japanese touches.

All guest rooms are equipped with an outdoor hot spring bath and a mini-kitchen, and you can enjoy the view of Izu from the room.

By train, it takes about 2 hours from Tokyo by Super View Odoriko, and about 3 hours from Nagoya by Shinkansen Kodama.

The hotel has its own partnerships with nearby facilities and offers a wide variety of special packages at special rates for those who stay overnight.

At Aubergine Hana, you can bathe in the soft, colorless, odorless hot spring water of Ito Hot Spring Resort, one of the three major hot spring resorts in Japan.

The hot spring baths include a rock bath where you can enjoy your private space surrounded by nature, a Shigaraki ware bath with a view of the Izu Islands, and a Bijin no Yu bath that is gentle on women’s skin.

The baths are famous for their “hot water” and will keep you warm even after the bath.

Seven types of guest rooms are available: “Mame no Ma”, “Mikan no Ma”, “Takenoko Ma”, “Negi no Ma”, “Wasabi no Ma”, and “Fuki no Ma”, which convey a Japanese atmosphere.

In particular, the Mame no Ma is the No. 1 special room with an open-air hot spring bath, equipped with an open-air rock bath large enough for four to five people to soak in comfortably, and from the terrace you will have a panoramic view of the Izu landscape.

Each room is fully equipped with amenity goods and facilities, so you are sure to have a comfortable stay.

You can taste dishes made from fresh local ingredients that represent the gastronomy of Izu.

Luxurious ingredients such as “lobster”, “sea bream”, and “Ashitaka beef from Shizuoka”, which are listed as one of the three most important food ingredients, will add color to your seasonal dishes.

In addition, you can also look forward to healthy and creative dishes that incorporate plenty of pesticide-free products grown by local farmers.
