One of eight baths in Beppu, Kan’nawa is a town where the atmosphere is reminiscent of old and quaint therapeutic baths. Maintaining the tradition from the Meiji era (late 1800s) of the tohjiba, a long-term stay onsen, today this inn has been remodeled into a Japanese-modern style. The main building still has the flare of days of old where rooms have no toilets or baths, but the renovated new wing has modern amenities. Take a dip in the hot springs, or make your own meals with locally bought vegetables, fish, meat, or eggs as you experiment with “hell steaming”. Pair your meal with a local wine, as you sit in the garden. Here is tranquility.
