Elegant Japanese rooms in a scenic onsen town

Isobe Onsen is the setting of a well-loved Japanese fable, "Shita-kiri Suzume," which translates as "The Sparrow with the Slit Tongue." Hotel Isobe Garden incorporates the story's theme into its experience, with daily showings of the tale in its robotic theatre.

Retire to the hotel's elegant Japanese bedrooms at night. Its more luxurious rooms provide a private, open-air bath in which you can enjoy an indulgent moment of peace, entirely uninterrupted.

Alternatively, make use of the hotel's outdoor baths. Each is filled with iron, sodium, chloride and hydrogen carbonate onsen water purported to help relieve aching muscles and reduce fatigue. Its baths include a beautiful cypress bath and an indoor bath with panoramic views over the Usui River below.

Breakfast is a feast of both Western and Japanese buffet options, while dinner is a chance to sample the prefecture's local farm produce.
