❚My admiration for a private hot spring
Dear followers, readers, how are you? I’m TOSHI, a Japanese woman.
In foreign countries, there are hotel rooms with pools, houses, and “private” beaches. It may exist in Japan, but I don’t think it’s very common.
Rather than those luxuries, I’m more interested in a room in an inn with a hot spring that can be called a “private hot spring”! is.
I have stayed in a hot spring inn room twice in my life, which has its own individual hot spring. Today I would like to talk about it.

❚“Private hot spring”.It was awesome
I think Japanese people are really interested in hot springs. Also, what is often mentioned in Japanese travel magazines is a mirage–a stylish hot spring inn with a hot spring only for those who stay in that room, which can be called a “private hot spring”. This is the kind of room that they are selling.
I have stayed in such a room twice. My dream came true and it was awesome.
I don’t need a private island or a castle (taxes and maintenance costs are too high!), but I sometimes want to go all out to stay in a room like those with private hot springs.
There are various types of rooms in such resorts, some of which are relatively inexpensive, and some of which are super-luxury.
The first time I realized that dream was at a hot spring inn in Ishikawa prefecture.
I was able to stay at good hot spring because it was bought by another company, who sold the room for a much better price, thus, I was offered a room with an “individual” hot spring.
Ishikawa Prefecture is where “Kanazawa” is located. Kanazawa is a Japanese city that embraces tradition.
The hot spring wasn’t in Kanazawa, but instead in a hot spring town, there were tourist attractions, the people were kind, and the food, especially the fresh fish and shellfish, was delicious.
❚Wonderfully delicate aroma and juicy taste of these fresh crabs
I also ate crabs, including crab sashimi, raw crab, for the first time in a long time, and it was very delicious.
Recently, freezing technology is advancing, and you can eat delicious food even at a distance from the ocean.
However, the crabs perish so quickly that I could appreciate the wonderfully delicate aroma and juicy taste of these fresh crabs, which are caught near the inn and eaten immediately.
The room was clean and had a nice room with a view of the lake.
❚“Private hot spring” While interacting with nature, I could…
It was a wonderful experience to always have a small but individual hot spring on the balcony until check-out.
It was an extraordinarily wonderful time to be able to see the lake at any time while taking a bath in my favorite hot spring, both late at night and early in the morning.
While interacting with nature, I was able to relax in the hot springs, wash away all the unpleasant things, and refresh myself completely.
Usually, the hot springs have a large communal bath, and there are also inns where you can feel pampered and luxurious, so that is also very good.
However, I can be lazy and don’t really like to travel to the public bath so often. It was good in that respect as well.
The next time I stayed in a room like that, I shared it with an older person.
The room was especially good for someone like my elderly fellow guest, who were too tired to walk and could not take a bath, a large communal bath of the inn.
In the room with “private hot spring”, she could take a bath in the room, any time she wanted or take a good rest, or breathe in the good air, and listen to the birds. The person had fully recovered.
❚ It is used in a romantic sense as well…
And of course, that kind of room is used in a romantic sense as well. A couple may have a special day, or a couple with a secret that they don’t want others to see for some reason.
A man could bring his wife, or a mistress, to the same inn on different days … In that case, the inn has to know which woman is the wife. There are times when you have to make sure that you don’t make a mistake, so some employees have acquired special skills so that they don’t make a mistake.
In any case, hot springs are one of Japan’s strongest cultural markers, whether private or not.
