Ryokan Hakkei

By Weekender Editor

Ryokan Hakkei is like a home away from home, except with top quality cuisine (suitable for vegans), hidden hot springs, and the famous suna-ya outdoor onsen on your doorstep. The mixed bathing area is near Yubara Dam, and is called a suna-ya (sand bath) because as the hot water gushes out it pushes sand onto the riverbed. It’s open 24 hours a day and is free of charge, and Hakkei provides special bathing wear for women so there’s no need to feel shy. If you’re up for a bit of sightseeing, you can reach Izumo Taisha Shrine, Adachi Museum of Art, the Tottori Sand Dunes, Himeji Castle, and Naoshima within two hours by car.
