Syoenso-Hozugawa-tei

Yunohana-onsen, 1–4 Hiedanocho, Ashinoyama, Kameoka City, 621-0034, Japan

Some rooms at this hillside hot-springs resort outside Kyoto proper have their own rotemburo (outdoor hot tub) overlooking a private garden. Communal baths (one for each gender) are available to all guests. Though the building's facade is nondescript, the Japanese-style lobby's garden-pathlike approach and sliding paper door suggest Old Kyoto. Seasonal ingredients form the basis of kaiseki meals that can include crab, sukiyaki, and, in winter, wild boar. The scenic way to get here is aboard the Sagano Torokko train that leaves from Saga Torokko Station in Arashiyama.
