Welcome to Sozankyo. This Modern Ryokan was built almost 60 years ago. Sozankyo consists of 3 wooden buildings, and each of the 38 Japanese-style rooms has its own private toilet. Sozankyo has natural hot spring water for the guest's relaxation and enjoyment (the baths are same gender only). There are 2 hot spring baths at Sozankyo - a Japanese orange bath and a milk bath both of which are highly beneficial for both skin and muscle ailments. Delicious, seasonal meals are served throughout the year and the owners of Sozankyo are particularly proud of their tofu dishes. Check-in time is after 15:00 and check-out time is before 10:00 am. Parking is available.

If you are traveling to Aso to visit the Mount Aso, I do recommend to stay for a night. There might not be much to do around the area but please keep in mind that the volcano is not always opened. When we first arrived to Mount Aso it was closed due to volcanic gas emissions. I
