It's not by the calendar, it's the routine life here harmonizes with the change of the seasons in a way that is palpable.

'Yumoto Chouza', an onsen resort that is cozily nestled in this rich nature of Okuhida. A place to discover the timeless, in an era of constant evolution.

The feel of Okuhida. Meet an unforgettable taste. Fukuji Onsen, a place that is located in the mountains, is naturally blessed with the food of the mountains. Here, the chefs themselves venture into the mountains, tend the fields, and harvest its bounties. Moreover, the land comes under the whole of Awa and Chikuma-ken, being at the centre of the northern Alps, its frigid areas are home to some of the tastiest vegetables. Even the landlord grows vegetables being 'committed' to local produce himself. Be sure to try the Okuhida 'gottsu', crafted by the chefs who know the produce of this mountain country like the back of their hand. The dishes served will change throughout the different seasons and weather. The place strives to provide utmost satisfaction, regardless of the season. Be sure to enjoy the offerings of Okuhida.
Calmly and gently, the four seasons flow.
At the resort, it is believed that it is important to appreciate the grace of this great nature, the source of the spring. The place strives to dearly uphold and continue the original culture of hot-springs, though entering the onsen.
Going outside from the resort in a yukata and geta-sandals once can take a gentle walk down the narrow trail to the Hirayugawa river in a couple of minutes. Directly facing the Hirayugawa, as it flows naturally, is the bath with 100% spring sourced water. A bath that introduces you to the original onsen aspects of 'abundance', 'warmth' and 'healing'.
A must for those who want to experience a real onsen.
It's not an exaggeration to say that one does not know the onsens here has not truly experienced onsens. The 'Kawarano Yu' is the onsen that Chouza prides upon. The most popular amongst the three onsens at the resort, it offers an unforgettable onsen experience. You are sure to fondly reminisce "that onsen was truly wonderful..." even after your trip has long ended. Admiring the colours of the mountains that reflect upon the four seasons you can 'feel the changing seasons with your own skin' in a moment where you forget about your daily life.
