Good old fashioned Japanese inn
Yugawara-machi is located on the border of Kanagawa and Shizuoka prefectures. Satsuma (mandarin orange) orchards spread out on the sunny hills and Chitose River slowly flows from the Hakone Mountains through the gentle slopes along the ”onsen” town out to Sagami Bay. The relaxed ambience of this region has long had a healing effect on people. Not only being mentioned in the ”tanka” recorded in the ancient ”Manyoshu”, but the ”onsen” has also been adored by numerous literary giants of modern Japanese literature, many of whom have written their literary work in Yugawara.
Hospitality deeply rooted in the local community
One of the attractions of Sekiyou is the food, vegetable from local farms, fish caught in the local seas, edible wild plants in spring; horse mackerel, inshore fish and abalone in summer; lobster in autumn; and daikon radish from Odawara and other seasonal ingredients. The dishes are prepared by traditional methods to bring out the ingredient’s flavor to the fullest, to make each dish memorable for guests.
