Myoban Hot Springs Okamotoya

Myoban Jigoku

Savor the breath of the earth

Beckoned by the rising steam, when you go up the hill road you will find Myoban Jigoku. Mineral deposits called "Yunohana" are harvested in huts called "Yunohana-goya." The sight of steam blowing out from these huts, and from between the stones in various places, has remained unchanged since the 1600s; it is a visual poem unique to this land. Tourists who are just stopping by enjoy the shop (which this inn directly manages), the walkway, and the panoramic bathhouse. We are proud of the soft, rich, Jigoku-mushi Pudding we make here, and would love for you to try it at least once.

Okamotoya Inn


This well-established Japanese inn, operating since 1875, proudly conveys the traditions of the Meiji era, serving as an entryway to that time.

Historic scenery

Myoban Bridge: a span filled with the emotion that makes you feel a deep history as you watch the steam rise.


The inn's interior has the essence of pure Japanese style. It sits in harmony with the nature surrounding it. Please relax in the warmth of our inn.
