Tsuwano Lodge Review

Relax and revel in style at this lodge tucked among the rice paddies and bamboo groves along the way to the Washibara Hachiman-gu Shrine. The owners are friendly (but don't speak much English), the rooms are basic but tasteful, and the food is diverse, healthful, and prepared with flair. Perhaps best of all, there's a rooftop rotemburo (outdoor bath) full of sulfur- and calcium-laden water that's good for the skin, hair, and nails. Rent a bicycle to explore the nearby countryside. If you know your arrival time in advance, call ahead and the owner will gladly pick you up at the station.
