About the Yoshikawaya

About the Yoshikawaya About the Yoshikawaya

The Yoshikawaya is located in Anabara Onsen, situated around 2 km from Iizaka Onsen and also known as "deep Iizaka." Iizaka Onsen is a part of Fukushima City, and one of the three hot springs in the old Oshu region (along with Akiu & Naruko). Since its establishment in 1841, Yoshikawaya has been preserving these valuable hot springs.

With a total of 128 guest rooms, you can select a room type to match your own preferences. Yoshikawaya's dining experience is held in high esteem, and has a focus on Japanese cuisine—our head chef's attention to detail is a particular point of pride.

From here, you can enjoy the expansive views of nature available only from a ryokan such as this, nestled in a valley. The Yoshikawaya has its own hot spring source, and this water can be enjoyed in both the large baths, and in the open-air baths.
