Bring ONSEN closer, traditional culture of Kan’nawa, Beppu, Japan

The origin of Hyotan Onsen was from the compassion of the founder, Junsaku, for his wife, Matsu. In 1922, Junsaku hit a hot spring to treat rheumatism of his wife Matsu, which is the beginning of Hyotan Onsen. Hyotan-shaped bath tub made of rocks was the first bath,
this bath tub is still in women’s bath and very popular with female visitors.
We, at Hyotan Onsen are striving to be a universal onsen facility, open to anyone of any nationality and gender, providing an opportunity to experience bathing in onsen as a Japanese culture.

100% free-flowing natural hot spring water and jigokumushi dishes steamed in hot spring steam, an old familiar cooking method in Kan’nawa.
Using onsen power, the facility helps you take the gift from the earth into your body.

We need to reflect back at our culture, taking into consideration what the ideal of onsen culture is, and aim to become a hot spring facility which will remain in your hearts.
We are looking forward to your visit.
