This is Sumiya Kiho-an.

Well, yesterday was special day in Japan, because it was the day of the winter solstice, called ‘toji’ .

Toji is the day of the year having the shortest period of sunlight, and it is said in Japan that taking yuzu-yu (a yuzu citron bath) and eating Toji-gayu (winter solstice rice gruel), which is azuki-gayu (rice gruel with red beans), and pumpkins on the day prevent catching cold.

Our guests who were staying here had enjoyable moment to take Onsen bath with yuzu citron fruits,it helps to immerse yourself in the time-honored Japanese traditional custom. We always welcome you in four season.
