Omiya Ryokan built in the tea-ceremony house style flavored with the Taisho romanticism has a history of 1000 years since its opening. It is known as the major source of the hot springs of the district, and guests can fully enjoy milky white spring water constantly gushing out of a stonewall. Paintings by Yumeji Takehisa that are displayed in the building soothe the weary mind of guests. If you come a little earlier, you can walk through the hot spring town and take a footbath.
