Each guestroom in ‘Wabizakura’ has own open-air bath with 100% natural springhead hot spring. Adding to that, all room guests have a privilege to take bath at the chartered outdoor bath. Original source was successfully gushed out within the site in 2008 after drill for hot spring. The quality is simple alkaline hot spring water in ph9.6 which makes your skin smoother. If you like to take it, you can book for 30 minutes bathing at your convenient period when you check in to ‘Wabizakura’. Business hours of the chartered outdoor bath are between 15:00 and 22:00 in the evening, and 6:00 and 10:00 in the morning


‘Wabizakura’ is aimed at the wealthy people from the Tohoku district


Main target of ‘Wabizakura’ is couples of 50s and 60s, because Kakunodate is popular among older tourists. However, the inn is also popular among tourists of 20s and 30s, and family groups. The inn aimed at couples so the quietness is one of the important factors. And therefore family group with children can only stay in the guest room with a dinning room.

Actually, most arrivals are fromSendaiandTokyometropolitan areas. The proportion of men and women is 4 to 6, even the inn has not intended to. Average total revenue per person is about 39,000 yen. Although, the inn has invested only limited amount of money on its promotion and the East Japan Earthquake affected a lot, its occupancy rate is about 70% so far. ‘Wabizakura’ has only limited 10 guestrooms, so it is possible to make the inn with full house in all season.
