Hot spring ryokan Yagyu no-Sho is one of Japan’s premier inns of high quality and distinction. Yagyu no-Sho presents  an unforgettable stay where traditional cuisine, baths, scenery, hospitality, and the beauty of Japanese architecture come together impeccably. With conscientious hospitality as the staff’s guiding light, you will enjoy a truly unique and wonderful Japanese inn experience.

Yagyu no-Sho is a favorite ryokan in Shuzen-ji, situated in a lovely hot spring village in Japan. Located just one hour by Shinkansen (bullet train) from Tokyo on the Izu Peninsula, it is a convenient respite between Tokyo and Kyoto. Spend a relaxing day on foot, meandering along the serene Katsura River visiting a beautiful Zen temple as well as Shuzen-ji’s main shrine. Experience the town’s small bamboo forest and walk along a scenic path that stretches between Shuzen-ji’s vermilion-colored bridges.
