Yamato -yamado- is an inn where you can enjoy nourishment with the hospitality of mountain masters.
Why don’t you enjoy the rich nature and healing that you cannot experience in the city, only here, in our 12 rooms with hot spring water from the source!
In this issue, we will introduce in detail the charm, location, room features, and cuisine of Yamato Yamado in Iwate Prefecture.
Located about 50 minutes by car from Iwate Hanamaki Airport, Yamato -yamado- is a secluded inn for adults where you can enjoy hot springs and the nourishing taste of the forest.
For sightseeing in the area, you can enjoy a meal at Yumu Plaza, a soba restaurant, or a workshop at Kenji’s classroom.
The Nishiwaga soba, made with 100% Nishiwaga-grown buckwheat flour produced in the natural Nishiwaga climate, has a firmness and flavor that is hard to believe it is buckwheat soba.
We recommend tasting the original flavor and texture of soba without dipping it in sauce.
In Kenji’s classroom, plants, animals, stars, and birds that appear in Kenji’s fairy tales are displayed by theme, and workshops can be enjoyed.
You can also have the wonderful experience of crossing the Milky Way while gazing at the twinkling stars, a fantastic sight that is sure to thrill you to no end!
When the weather is nice, you can play as much as you like on the grass outside, and around noon, the tents and stores open and you can have a relaxing lunch outside.
You can even learn what you learned at Kenji’s school in each of the classrooms, which could be perfect for your child’s free research!
Charm of Yamado
At Yamato, the entire building is considered to be a mountain.
Each building is located from the top of the mountain to the middle of the mountain, and then to the foot of the mountain, so that you can enjoy a healing moment free from the hustle and bustle of the city and everyday life.
The lobby is an open space with a fusion of Scandinavian style and Japanese taste.
A moment immersed in harmony with jazz music in the background is the best time of your life!
The open-air baths along the mountain stream are available for private use.
For relaxation, the esthetic salon incorporating bodywork techniques by a female bodywork therapist is very popular!
The at-home atmosphere and personalized treatment will help you feel beautiful from the inside out.
In addition, there are various popular activities depending on the season.
River trekking along the bottom of Mawarido Canyon and a tour of giant beech and laurel trees, which are power spots in Nishiwaga, are also popular.
