Oiwake Hot Spring

A single traditional inn on a pass, brimming with retro character

Oiwake Hot Spring is a single inn, nestled in a mountain pass along Prefectural Route 64, which runs from the river mouth of the Kitakami River through the mountains to Tome City. It is located in the mountains around Mt. Okinagura, which is a habit for the golden eagle, a designated natural treasure and is characterised by its exterior, that is reminiscent of an old-fashioned wooden school building. This is a truly secluded mountain inn, brimming with a nostalgic atmosphere.

The owner has long been a fan of hot springs and the bathtub at Oiwake Hot Spring is made from 500-year-old kaya, or Japanese nutmeg wood. Feel relaxed by the simple and gentle texture of the wooden bathtub.

Food at the inn includes an array of fresh seafood from Minamisanriku and guests can feast both their eyes and their stomachs on delicious fare. The owner of the inn polished his culinary skills in a Japanese restaurant and never uses ready-made products, preferring to focus on the ingredients themselves. Many guests rave about the food, and not just its flavour, but also the volume and cost performance.

All rooms are Japanese style. Just like the exterior, all interiors have a rich retro atmosphere and first-time visitors are likely to feel a little nostalgic once they walk through the doors.
