- GO TO JAPANESE BEAUTY - SETTSUKYO : & how to stay Japanese hotel  for biginners.

Our Japanese-style inn is located along the "Settsukyo Gorge", one of Osaka's most famous scenic areas. Japan's four seasons are imprinted on the abundant nature that surrounds our inn.

Our location is perfect for experiencing the beauty of Japan. In spring (from around the end of March to the beginning of April) approximately 3000 cherry blossom trees are in full bloom, and in autumn (around November) the clear stream is colored by beautiful autumn leaves.

Furthermore, we are located within a 60-minute drive from some of Kansai's most popular tourist destinations, including Dotonbori and Universal Studios in Osaka, and Arashiyama and Kiyomizu-dera in Kyoto. International guests are especially pleased with our convenient location.

About Sansuikan
