Daikokuya boasts 100% natural, free-flowing hot spring water. The temperature of the hot spring source ranges between 38º and 45º Celsius, meaning that guests unaccustomed to hot baths can also enjoy bathing here.
There is an open air bath, a stone bath, and a wooden bath. Lying back in the open air bath, guests can enjoy the light breeze, the murmur of the river beyond, and the changing colors on the treetops above. The stone bath enjoys an outlook to the trees outside and catches southern sunlight all year round. The wooden bath is lined with Japanese cypress that generates an exquisite aroma. This bath evokes the intimate scale and feel of a traditional Japanese bathing experience. All baths can be enjoyed day or night, throughout your stay.
