Nizaemon-no-yu is a day trip hot spring resort located in Katsura, a place famous for moon viewing, and where nobles in the Heian period are said to have gazed at the moon.
The "Nizaemon" in our name originated from a prominent local figure who cooperated with loyalists of the Emperor at the end of the Edo period.
When viewing "the moon in Katsura" while bathing in an open-air bath named after a character of the Tale of Genji, you may feel like a Heian noble.
Try bathing alternately in cold and hot water with our two types of free-flowing springs—"Ichi-no-yu," cold spring water gushing from 600 meters underground, and "Ni-no-yu,"
high-temperature hot spring water gushing from 1,500 meters underground.
