Existing facilities help promoting the concept of ‘Natural & Comfort’.

 Hotel Shogetsutei has had attracting facilities, such as public bathhouse ‘Gekka-no-yu’, relaxation salon ‘Fuka’ and cottage type spa facility ‘Mori-no Private Spa’ which also help promoting the concept of new renovated zone ‘Natural & Comfort’.




Public bathhouse ‘Gekka-no-yu’ is surrounded by natural forest so you can enjoy beautiful natural scenery in each season while taking bath. You really feel something like bathing in a natural springhead Onsen. Fresh air surrounded the bathhouse will bring you to the supreme bliss of relaxation.

Both sections for men and women have natural taste of inner grand baths and outdoor baths in the landscape garden in front of the bathhouse. Different style of mist sauna and Jacuzzi are also equipped in each section.

A feeling of natural freedom in spacious outdoor bath and Jacuzzi

A sauna next to the bathhouse is quite beautiful in Romanesque architecture. It is wholly covered with aroma of herb and white mist which make your skin revitalize in efficacy of aromatherapy. Then, soak into the Jacuzzi bath next door and make you relax mentally and physically. The herbs for aroma, such as rosemary, lavender, mint, and so on, are changed seasonally.

While enjoy bathing in open-air Jacuzzi, fragrance from Hinoki Japanese cypress used as the bath tub make you mentally and physically refresh.

Then, perspire profusely and make your self refresh in the mist sauna decorated with marble floor and tasteful natural stone wall. It is a precious space with the scent of ‘Hinoki’ Japanese cypress is wafting through the air. Comfortable scent of mist heals your utterly exhausted body.




Comfortable Japanese style tearoom for bathers makes them relax and recuperate after bath. A cup of healthy drinks for refreshment, such as Oolong (traditional Chinese tea), orange juice, and Ume (Japanese apricot) are served.
