Kitakata has long been known for organic farming. Yamagataya uses safe and traceable farm and mountain vegetables grown only by farms that we know. We use local beef and locally caught fish to prepare the traditional native cuisine and our unique innovative dishes. Delicious food ingredients are locally harvested in season: asparagus and mountain vegetables in spring, summer vegetables, rice and mushrooms in autumn and hakusai (napa cabbage) and radish in winter.

Yamagataya is a 650-year-old Japanese style ryokan inn located in the Atsushio Onsen area of Kitakata city, on the border between Fukushima Prefecture and Yamagata Prefecture.

It is characterized by its salty hot springs, so you can soothe your tired body from a day full of enjoying the surrounding nature.

In Kitakata you can enjoy seasonal scenery and flowers such as weeping cherry blossoms and 2.5 million rape blossoms in spring, the largest sunflower field in Tohoku in summer, and golden rice in autumn. It is also a popular place for cycling.

And of course, in winter we enjoy heavy snowfall with often more than 2 meters of snow on the ground.

The ryokan is located close to Sannokura and within a one hour drive from the larger ski resorts in the region that enjoy the best powder snow conditions - for example Urabandai, Alts Bandai, Inawashiro and also Tengendai in Yamagata Prefecture.

Central Kitakata City is also just 15 minutes by car. Kitakata is famous for 'Kitakata Ramen' noodles. There are also many traditional cultural attractions in Kitakata as well as many traditional izakayas where you can enjoy nightlife.

During a stay at Yamagataya, you can enjoy the ski resorts in Fukushima Prefecture and Yamagata Prefecture, powder snow conditions, relaxing hot springs, Japanese culture and nightlife in Kitakata.

We hope to warmly welcome you to Atsushio Onsen Yamagataya this winter.
