Suzume no Oyado Isobekan is located in the Isobe hot spring resort, which is said to be the birthplace of the "Shitakiri suzume" legend. Isobekan (long referred to by people as the "Suzume-no-Oyado" or "The Sparrow’s Inn") is a ryokan replete with the elegant aroma of wood. The guest rooms in the new wing overlooking the Usui River have been constructed from plain wood in a modern "sukiya" style. Meals at this ryokan consist of Japanese kaiseki cuisine utilizing local ingredients and tastes that change every month. These are served in a small, private Japanese style restaurant in order to allow guests to relax and enjoy themselves to the fullest.
