A lavish holiday, or a day just doing nothing.
Head south by car for 5 minutes from downtown Ureshino.
Discover “Shiibasanso”, a secluded ryokan standing along the Siiba River between the deep green of Mt. Shiiba and tranquil terraced rice fields. The rustle of the trees, the murmur of the river, songs of birds, and sounds of insects that drift to you on the clear winds from the mountains. The sound of silence, along with the beautiful scenery of the valley that changes with the seasons, uplift the soul and enable you to feel the luxury of simply doing nothing. Let yourself go with the tranquil flow of passing time with the view in front of you, which is definitely a part of Ureshino Onsen, but somehow not quite like the rest of it. How would you like to end your day, and start a new the next day?
