We, 60s married couple from Osaka, would like to go on a hot spring trip around May. Can anyone recommend good accommodations for 2 nights and 3 days with nice view from an open-air bath? Our budget is approximately 50,000yen per person per night.

I’d like to travel in a leisurely pace this spring as celebration for recovery from illness. Can anyone recommend a good accommodation with bloomed flowers and nice view from an open-air bath?

The chartered hot spring

It takes 13mins by foot from Izu kougen station to access to this hotel. Even though you have to walk a bit, this hotel has good access to transportation. There are the chartered baths so you can take a bath without caring other people. You can relieve your tiredness from daily life and release the stress. Kaiseki dishes are delicious.

A hot spring hotel with all chartered baths and annex

I stayed at this hotel 2 years ago with my family (married couple and 2 children) and my aunt in law. If you travel by shinkansen, you can go to Atami by express Odoriko and you can walk to this hotel from Izu kougen station. All baths are to be chartered and there are several types of baths such as open-air bath or half open-air bath. You can take a bath anytime you want if it’s available. You eat your meals at the restaurant in the front building. Sashimi from alfonsino was delicious.

There is an open-air bath with great view

A hot spring is called as Bijin no yu and it’s good quality and 100% fresh running hot spring water. The sea is right in front of you so you can see the nice view. You can eat meals at your room in your pace. The flowers aren’t bloomed yet but you can walk a bit to the place with fully bloomed iris and Miyakirishima (rhododendron kiusianum). I hope you find good accommodation and have a good trip.

You can stay at annex and have a relaxed time

This accommodation is located on the hill which stands to Kiisuidou so you can see the good view. Although it is a big accommodation, there is an annex with exclusive open-air bath separated from main building. You eat your meals at the restaurant so that you can ensure your privacy as the staffs don’t need to enter your room to serve the dishes. But if you want to eat at your room, you can. From check-in until check-out you can have a relaxed time together with your partner. This is the best accommodation.

Chapel and open-air bath

Awaji shima is close to Osaka and there are beautiful flowers and nice open-air baths. This hotel is one of the biggest hotels in Awaji shima with chapel and many beautiful flowers. Even though the open-air bath is on the underground, you can see the beautiful view of trees and warm lights. I’m sure you can have a relaxed time.

If you want to soak in a hot spring in a leisurely pace, you should stay at this hotel!

You might feel a bit crowded because there are many guests staying at this hotel but the bathroom is huge and you can have a comfortable time there. The room is spacious and futon is so soft and great. I have to tell you that breakfast is very delicious!! I think breakfast at this hotel is the best from other Japanese style hotels. There are many sightseeing spots such as Asaichi (morning market) and Wajimanuri in Nose.

I recommend the room with an open-air bath

You can enjoy taking a bath at an open-air bath in your room anytime you want. It’s easy to access this hotel from Osaka by car. You can also visit Dougo onsen. If you want to do some sightseeing, you can use the taxi service from this hotel. It costs 10,000yen and taxi driver will guide you. There are shops and shopping area around the hotel so you can have fun walking there. You can walk to the sightseeing spots around the hotel on the first day and on the second day you can do sightseeing by taxi. If you drive for sightseeing, you’ll have problems finding the car park. The taxi driver can take some photos of you two. You can enjoy taking a gorgeous bath and eating delicious dishes. I think you better ask them not to serve rice and fried dishes in advance so that you can eat better quality dishes. Normal dishes are too much for elderly people.

An accommodation with nice view from an open- air bath

I recommend Jyosaki onsen Nishimuraya Hotel Shogetsutei. This beautiful hotel is located in the woods garden of 50,000 tsubo. You can enjoy the seasonal flowers and plants. The guestroom is spacious so you can have a relaxed time. In addition, there are some rooms with an open-air bath. The view from the open-air bath in the nature is magnificent. The meals are also delicious. I recommend this hotel.

Gero onsen with rich nature

This elegant sukiya style of accommodation is in Gero onsen. You can enjoy seeing a panorama view of well-maintained garden and mountain from an open-air bath so you feel very relaxed. The room is elegant Japanese room with relaxed atmosphere. It’s spacious so it’s a perfect to have a relaxed time. You can also enjoy viewing the townscape and nature. I stayed at Japanese room but there are also western rooms so you can choose the room style according to your preference. The meals are delicious kaiseki dishes and I could eat Hida beef.

Magnificent view from an open-air bath

This hotel is not so far from Osaka and located in the lakeside of Biwako so you can feel relaxed being way from the bustle of the big city. There is nothing in front of an open-air bath so the view from there is truly magnificent. Of course it is a hot spring and you can charter the bath. You can see the same view from your room if you choose the room with ocean view.

A luxury hotel where Imperial Family even stays at

You want to stay at some historical and cultural town, right? I recommend Hagi, Yamaguchi. There are many historical buildings from Meiji Restoration. I recommend Tanaka Hotel in Yuda onsen, Yamaguchi. This is a hotel where Emperor and Empress stayed at so I highly recommend.
