"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."

Hot Spring Hot spring of Yamashiro is very rare and precious in Japan, because it gushes out less than 100m depth, and made the most of blessing of the holy mountains of Hakusan. Above all, the hot spring used in Araya Totoan is about 100,000 liter per day, which is the top among the ryokans in Yamashiro. In addition, the quality of this hot spring received the gold prize at the International exhibition of mineral hot spring in Germany, in the old Taisho period and won high praise worldwide.
Large public bath and open-air bath are treasured traditional sprit of spa therapy, used a constant flow of water running straight from the spring, and available all day. You can enjoy the source which gushes out for several hundred years without stopping temporarily until now.

Special Bathroom "Karasu-yu"
Mist from the hot spring source fills this sparsely lit, black-colored bathroom. This room offers two baths - one lukeward and the other fairly hot - that you can freely switch between.
This might well be called a "meditation bath", allowing you to experience the hot spring source with your five senses.

Indeed it is the inn which has the strongest power in local. The wine bar was a wonderful idea. However, the wine was not fitting with the inn. You should study more about wine. + More

I stayed with my aged parents for a total of 3 people. My schedule was different from my parents on the first day, so we had to check-in twice, which they kindly dealt with it. This is our second stay, and it underwent quite a bit of renovation since our last stay (more than 10 years ago?) and we had a really pleasant stay. The bedding was also low repulsion and we had a great sleep. To get onto the bus for Eihei-ji the next day, we were unable to take our time and had to check out at 9 am., which was a pity. Both the food and onsen were great. I am really satisfied being able to visit the Arisugawa Villa I craved for this time. Next time, I would like to stay leisurely in the season of crabs. + More

The hotel charge is not worth the quality of the service. As for the food, it was not really Kaga cuisine and nothing extraordinary. I had the impression that the room was halfway refurbished. I would not recommend it. + More

It was the inn with feel of style. I was so impressed by this inn that's been there for 18 generations. The room had a calm atmosphere, and I felt meticulous attention to details. I would like to give a demerit mark as it was not so impactful compared to others, although the food was all beautiful and wonderful being served in pretty dishes. I am sorry. Arisugawa-sanso (cottage) was beautiful. As was expected, I felt this place was imposing and something unusual. Alcoholic beverages were also good. Please go see there when staying at this accommodation. It is truly a beautiful place. I am making many impudent remarks but think that everything about this accommodation is full of grace as much as it makes me feel "what am I saying?" Thank you very much. + More

The inn was as elegant and balmy as its reputation says it was. A high class of the inn was indicated by its preference felt in tatami placed in the entire building, Seika Suda’s ceramic comfortably decorated, Rosanjin’s vessels and calligraphy, and if I go into detail, a turtle design to hide a nail, of course, clean bedding and towels and even a piece of complimentary sweets. I didn’t give you a perfect ten because of the amount of the food. The amount of the food served for breakfast and dinner was too much for us, an elderly couple, to eat all. It was maybe because of cultural differences. In Tokyo, leaving food on a plate is considered as disrespect to a restaurant. A restaurant, which serves the food, or better yet, a “moderate amount of the food,” is a good restaurant that I want to go repeatedly. If it is not enough, it is only necessary to reorder it. It might be the right amount of the food for foreigners. If you could adjust the amount of the food and provide Katadomari (it means to have a meal once, either breakfast or dinner, at an inn) from the second night, then I would like to stay there for many nights. + More

It was a very quiet inn and I had a great relaxing time. The timing for check-in was strictly adhered to which was slightly disappointing. Recently there are many inn that permit check-in when you reach early, but that was not allowed here. However the food was delicious and the staff provided good service. I would love to visit the inn again. + More

Visited with my daughter and her fiancee. Thank you so much for being so thoughtful when assigning the room. My daughter and her fiancee were really delighted. The landlady specially called us to check on the food we can't eat, and even the waitress asked if we are alright with these; they were considerate and we felt grateful for that. The food was really delicious. The half open air bath in the room flowed from the original source so it was warm and I could soak in it many times comfortably. Also, as I was full from dinner, Arisugawa Villa was peeking out a little, but the ambiance was nice. I had a pleasant time; thank you so much. + More

Firstly the hospitality and the service were good as the reputation and was something that went over my expectation. The handling of my requests or of mismanagement were fantastic like the great hotel it was. However I did not think it was right to refer to a Spanish sparkling wine as a champagne. I think it would be much much better if they pay attention to small details. + More
