Charms of Gyokusui, Nara
Naramiseryo-no-Sato Gyokusui is a dignified inn located in a quiet, natural setting in the hot spring resort of Atsukawa, Izu.
It has a garden of about 3,000 tsubo, which changes its color with the seasons and is filled with the chirping of birds. The inn is full of attractions such as “Takebayashi no Sato Tamagawa”, a rare private hot spring in Oku-Atsukawa that our ancestors would have enjoyed.
The Naramisery no Sato Gyokusui is particularly special, being the only hot spring in Japan where you can enjoy the Oku-Atugawa hot spring source.
The large bath, made of luxurious Izu bluestone, is an open-air structure where you can stretch your arms and legs while enjoying a sense of unity with the seasonal landscape of the satoyama. There is also a large open-air rock bath and two private open-air baths where you can enjoy the pleasures of the hot spring without being alone.

A total of 13 rooms are available at Nara Shiso-no-Sato Gyokusui with a view of the satoyama landscape.
The rooms are designed in the “chic” style of modern sukiya style, and offer a peaceful and relaxing retreat for a carefree stay.
Of all the rooms, we recommend the separate room with an open-air bath with a spring water source of hinoki cypress and Izu-ishi stone.
Facing the garden and bamboo grove, this is the only room in Gyokusui that offers two views, and is equipped with two open-air baths, one in Japanese cypress and the other in Izu-ishi stone.
This room is the only room in Gyokusui with two views of the garden and bamboo grove, and has a bedroom and 8 square meter Japanese-style room (living room).
