Please tell me some information on an accommodation with a hot spring where we, as family, can take time and enjoy eating together within Yamagata prefecture. Our budget is 20,000 per person and we’re going to stay there for a night.

I’m thinking to stay at an accommodation with a hot spring for a night to celebrate my father’s 60th birthday. 7 adults and 2 children (2 years old and 0 year old) will join this cerebration. Please give me some information on some accommodations with a hot spring that we can reserve whole room or space only for ourselves when we eat.

If I have to pick a good accommodation in Touhoku

If I have to pick a good accommodation, I pick this hotel. I think you can stay there just with your budget of 20,000yen per person and you’ll be satisfied with your stay. I think the staffs at the hotel can help you with preparation if you tell them that you plan to celebrate something such as sixtieth birthday celebration. I think you’ll be satisfied with a hot spring, meals, room and everything.

Spacious hotel area and room. You can have a relaxed time at bath.

The room is spacious and you can have a relaxed time. There are great baths such as open-air bath, chartered bath and panorama bath. I think the meals were delicious such as Yamagata gyu. Although the shuttle bus service is operated from the station, it’s more convenient to have a car to travel to sightseeing spots.

For sure

This hot spring hotel in Kaminoyama onsen is probably most well- known accommodation in Yamagata as the name is often pop up at ranking of hot spring hotel. I think everyone is more likely to be satisfied with facilities, service, hot spring and meals. If you have many people, I thought it is better to pick popular accommodation so I recommend this accommodation.

You can fully charter the hall

If you look for a hall or space which you can fully charter in order to have dinner together with your family members, I recommend this hotel which I stayed with my colleagues for the company retreat. This is a famous hotel. A room is spacious and this hotel is located in very quiet area, I liked the jar pudding which is limited edition of this hotel. It was delicious.

A hotel with a hot spring where you can stay reasonable

Zaou onsen Zaou Kokusai Hotel is located close to the final bus stop of regular bus to Zaou onsen. You take this bus from Yamagata station of Yamagata shinkansen. If you tell them in advance, they can pick you up at the bus stop. This hotel has good online reviews. I recommend the summer family early booking plan with half price for primary school student, free accompanying child and some discounts (early booking 30days in advance payment, 2000yen discount). An open-air bath is so spacious and you can soak in a hot spring while looking a nice view. You can have a precious time. In addition, there are 3 chartered baths and you can enjoy soaking in a hot spring. There is no plan that you can eat meals at your own room. You eat your meals on the big table with your family at the big hall. You can stay there with 54,000yen for 5 adults per room.

Great celebration plan with chanchanko

I stayed at this hotel with the plan of ‘sixtieth birthday celebration, koki, kijyu. For the celebration for long life! A plan with chanchanko’. I really enjoyed eating ‘Yamagata kyoudo no mikaku’ (Yamagata’s local delicosu dishes) which are cooked with seasonal ingredients with Zaou star wine. In addition, I really liked soaking in a milky-white hot spring of 100% fresh spring water which is good for skin. The staffs were kind and I could spend the best time there.

A hot spring hotel in Yamagata for family trip

Kainoyama onsengou has a very long history of 550 years. I recommend Tsukioka Hotel because of spacious guest rooms, spacious hot spring facilities with atmosphere, well-maintained beautiful garden, delicious meals with Yamagata ingredients and warm hospitality and so on. The special rooms are prepared for family to eat together. I recommend that you talk with them in advance.

Good meals, good hot spring and reasonable price.

日本語訳:I stayed at this hotel a few years ago with my friend. Yamagata gyu steak was delicious. You can also eat sukiyaki or shabu shabu with Yamagata gyu. There is a children price for the meals. Please have a look their website.

An accommodation in Tendo onsen

I stayed at this accommodation for a night for family trip (married coupe and 1 child). This accommodation is relatively close to Tendo station of Yamagata shinknsen but I used the pick-up service from Tendo station. A hot spring was very relaxing and meals were delicious. You can eat at private room at the restaurant.

A guest room with a hot spring and foot bath.

Although it isn’t open-air bath, the guestroom has a hot spring. Some guestrooms are with foot bath and you can see nice view. A room is spacious and clean. Dinner is so big portion and I’m totally satisfied. I recommend this hotel as it is quiet and relaxed hotel.

Recommended

I recommend Okayu onsen Tansen Hotel. You need to drive a bit from Akayu station of Ouu honsen. A hot spring of Akayu is soft to your skin and has high level of moisture effect so you can enjoy soaking in the hot spring with your family. At night you can enjoy eating delicious dishes with Yonezawa gyu or sangenton. This hotel isn’t serious but with casual and warm atmosphere so I recommend for family trip.

You can charter the whole room on one floor and enjoy eating Yonezawa gyu

You can charter the whole guest rooms on one floor at Onogawa onsen Itsutsuno kokoro no yado Takasagoya. Although I only used the normal guest room, I’ve heard that the chartered guest room has 4 rooms and its size in total is 35jyo with hinoki open-air bath with 100% fresh hot spring water. The price is around 10,000yen per person for use of 7 adults. I think it is nice idea to put some options if you save some money for the room. Although you cannot eat your meals at your own room, you can eat true Yonezawa gyu. In addition, a hot spring in Onogawa onsen is great quality and you can even drink. This hotel is small and cosy but you feel warmness. For your information, you might receive phone call to confirm your booking twice but don’t be so surprised.

16 jyo of Japanese room

There are different size of Japanese rooms (depending on your plan) and they stands to the beautiful garden. So you can see beautiful views of each season from your room. You can eat dishes with Yonezawa gyu or seasonal kaiseki dishes for dinner at your room if you book in advance. There is also a menu for little child so you don’t need to worry about it. You can enjoy 100% fresh hot spring water at a big common bath with an open-air bath and chartered bath. You can spend your anniversary nicely there with your family.

You can have a relaxed time with your family

Soaking in a hot spring is nice but you can also enjoy taking a foot bath inside of this hotel. Although dinner isn’t included into the rate, you can eat your favorite meals at the restaurant at the hotel. The price is reasonable. You don’t need to make a booking in advance and you can eat nice meals there. There is Japanese-Western type room so children can sleep at Japanese room so that you don’t need to worry about them falling from the bed and elderly people can sleep in the bed. I stayed at this room with 4 adults and 2 little children but it was enough space for all.
