Uncompromising Passion for Our Guests

We consistently listen to our guests’ opinions to improve our services and facilities, so that everyone may find satisfaction during their stay. We strive to be an inn that continues to get better through each visit.

  • 3-Dish Gourmet Plan

    3-Dish Gourmet Plan

    This is a sumptuous kaiseki meal in which guests may savor the top 3 gourmet foods of the region: sliced raw Ise lobster, Saga wagyu beef steak, and butter-sautéed abalone.

    * The Ise lobster in the photo shows 2 servings; this plan is limited to 2 or more guests.

    * The plan menu is subject to change according to the stock of the day and the season.




Enjoy our diverse selection of Saga’s locally-brewed sake, cocktails, and soft drinks with your meal.



  • Each dish is carefully prepared with seasonal ingredients. Savor the Ureshino specialty, Onsen Yudofu (tofu cooked in onsen water), with special Ritouen sauce.

Ureshino's specialty—Onsen Yudofu

Tofu (bean curd) simmered in the onsen water of Ureshino becomes a creamy yudofu. This exquisite dish is created when components in the onsen water break up the proteins in the tofu.

Even guests who usually skip breakfast will find themselves feasting on this tantalizing tofu with special Ritouen sauce.
