“Comfort to those who visit, happiness to those who leave” ~Come to Shimosuwa ~
Among the 69 post stations of the Nakasendo, Shimono- Suwa -juku prospered as the only post with a hot spring, and as the intersection of the Koshu Kaido and the Nakasendo.
The legendary miraculous spring, Watanoyu, which is said to have been brought by the deity of Suwa Taisha, Yasaka Tome no Kami, has an abundant amount Wata-no-yu spring water, and the luxury of free-flowing water.
It has healed the fatigue of travelers coming and going since ancient times.
This facility has been operating here for a long time as a restaurant during the Taisho era and as an inn after the war.
『Enjoy peace for those who come and happiness for those who leave.]
Peace to those who enter, hail to those who leave.
We look forward to welcoming you.
