Oirase Keiryu Hotel: First-Time Open in Winter in 10 Years


Oirase Keiryu Hotel has been closed in the winter time for 10 years.  This winter, it finally gets prepared and will have its first-time open. Let’s see what’s new!

World’s first: Icefall Hot Spring

The waterfall only gets frozen in the freezing weather. In Oirase Gorge, the freezing cold winter alters the look of waterfall and dramatically freezes the waterfall into “icefall.”

This December, the outdoor hot spring will be reformed and turn into the world’s first hot spring which is surrounded by the icefall. Soaking in the hot spring while observing the frozen waterfall gives you a unique experience for your winter journey.

You can also put on the snow-shoes to enjoy the snow ground walk in the forest. Or take the free shuttle bus to watch the frozen waterfall. At night, there is also a free shuttle bus goes to the icefall for the amazing illumination.
