ご挨拶

The tranquility unraveling your heart.
The joy of traveling in a country of four seasons.

Takeo Onsen is a hot spring town with a 1,300-year history. A slight distance away is Mt. Mifune or Mifuneyama, a sacred mountain since ancient times. Onyado Chikurintei is in a serene area next to this mountain. Within a property of 495,000 square meters, we have only 11 guest rooms. Each room takes full advantage of its lush location for optimum room layouts and unique scenic views. A few rooms have a private outdoor bath, a moon-viewing deck, and a private walking path to the garden. We aim to be a ryokan inn that is one with the surrounding garden.

We want to integrate and coordinate with the seasons, nature, and the surrounding environment to create and share a relaxing and healing space.

御船山楽園の見取り図

Ever since opening in 1845, Mifuneyama Rakuen has tirelessly displayed the four seasons and has experienced some history. Now here for everyone's enjoyment.

Set against the cliffs of Mt. Mifune, Mifuneyama Rakuen is a garden spread over a large area filled with hundreds of thousands of trees and flowering plants providing colorful views in all four seasons. The scenery has changed along with the times and the viewing public's preferences. The longer you stay and walk around here, the more memories you make.

Integrated with the garden is Onyado Chikurintei inn, offering panoramic views for the traveler's maximum enjoyment. Four of the guest rooms have their own walking paths going directly to the Rakuen garden. A garden inn, or a garden enveloping an inn. Come and experience the beauty of this space.
