Authentic, Traditional and Feels Like Home

Welcome to Yoshidaya Ryokan at Zao Onsen, Yamagata Prefecture

All year round, Zao Onsen brims with the colors of the four seasons, creating the perfect backdrop for hiking in spring and summer, viewing autumn leaves in fall, and skiing/snowboarding in winter. Yoshidaya is steeped in 300 years of history and stands on Takayu-dori, a place rich with hot spring tradition, and yet it is only a 5-minute walk from the bus terminal and Zao Ski Resort. The hot spring baths in the ryokan are open 24 hours. Free Wi-Fi is available throughout the ryokan.

・Individual shower rooms are available for those who would prefer not to use the large communal baths.
・We can prepare Western style breakfasts on request during the winter season (from December to March).
・We have English-speaking staff.

Relaxing and comfortable Japanese-style rooms replete with an unmistakable flavor of Japan. Relax mind and body in warm bath water which is smooth to the skin. Soak away your travel weariness. Enjoy Japanese cuisine prepared with an abundance of seasonal ingredients. We offer our heartfelt service to all, in order to make every guest's stay a joyful one.
