"The surface of water is ever changing, but hot spring water endlessly flows out of the earth for time eternal. The nature of hot springs is a reflection of ""fuekiryuko"", one of the teachings of Matsuo Basho, which states that the source of immortality and fluidity are the same. From the time of the 1st Araya Gen-emon up until the present, our livelihood has been to ensure that which remains unchanged, and the very being of that which should be changed, continues to breathe steadily.The Spirit of Hospitality - This is what we wish to nurture and pass on to future generations."
