What is the "YUNOGAWA"?
During the Edo period, hot spring towns were built centered around a public bath.
Inns were built around the perimeter of a public path, and guests tended to stay for long periods of time. Some were there
for medical purposes and others just enjoyed strolling in nature.
The public bath was called "Soyu", and the area surrounding the Soyu was called "Yunogawa" in the Hokuriku dialect.
Here, Japan’s traditional hot spring culture still remains in its historical townscape.
Japanese Sake, bringing out the best of every meal
Japanese Sake is unique among the world's alcohols, being as delicious warm as it is chilled ? sake is fantastic anywhere from 5°C to 55°C, an exceptionally wide temperature range. You can taste the shifts in Japan's climate from spring to summer, from fall to winter, in sake, as it is just as much the product of its home as anything or anyone else. Naturally, sake pairs exquisitely with Japanese cuisine: we urge you to try Yamashiro's delicious dishes with some sake alongside to complete the meal.
