Main content starts here.

The hot springs facility looks up at Mt. Fuji and down on the Kofu basin by day, and commands a view of the reputed "ceiling of starry skies" at night.
Visitors can enjoy the changing of the seasons: a blanket of peach flowers covers the Kofu basin in spring, a cool breeze reaches the location 700m above sea level in summer, the mountain range is embraced in red leaves in autumn, and the sky is thickly sprinkled with starts in winter.
The site's two hot springs are Acchi-no-yu ("that bath") and Kocchi-no-yu ("this bath").
Kocchi-no-yu is the facility's first bath that enjoys perpetual popularity. It consists of an open-air hot spring made of wood and stone, and an indoor bath fragrant of wood. It offers a view of Mt. Fuji in front, and the ridge of Mt. Kabuto (one of Yamanashi's 100 celebrated mountains) to the right.

On the other hand, Acchi-no-yu which opened in the end of the Heisei 15 (2003) is doubled in size of the Kocchi-no-yu.
It is popular as its grandeur and the location which commands the view of Kofu basin which had been authorized as the new Japan's best three night view.  The bath which you can see the fantastic sunrise from is this Acchi-no-yu bath. Moreover, the original spring water of Acchi-no-yu is gushing from 1,500 meters under ground of crush zone, and that PH is 10.1 which is high level, and it will help your skin get smooth and will prevent you from feeling chill after a bath. After bathing, the specialty food, Ontama-Age meets your appetite.
