Hishino Onsen Tokiwakan is a ryokan with a panoramic open-air bath which you reach by cable car

Welcome to Hishino Onsen Tokiwakan

Tokiwakan is a quiet hot spring ryokan surrounded by the woods, in a mountain range 1,000 m above sea level.
The ryokan's special feature is that you ride a cable car up to the panoramic open-air bath, Kumonosuke, which offers a magnificent view.
The ryokan has a private cable car that covers a total distance of 130 meters leading to the mountain peak at the back of the ryokan, where the open-air bath, Kumonosuke, is located.
From the open-air bath, Kumonosuke, a panorama of beautiful landscape expands before your eyes.
In this picturesque view, you will see Mt. Tateshina and Yatsugatake, and the Okuchichibu Mountains surrounding the Sakudaira basin. Mt. Fuji can also just be seen on a clear day, though only the tip.
