The hospitality is second to none.

Relax and unwind from your weary travels.
There are large baths such as "Tasogareno-yu" (the women’s bath) and "Akatsukino-yu" (the men's bath) that use Wakura Onsen, one of the most popular hot springs in Japan.
Both baths have an inside bath and an open air bath.
The spring is rich in minerals such as natrium, calcium and chloride.
This hot spring is good for rheumatism, neuralgia, gout, and allergies.
It is also said to be good for anemia and digestive disorders if you drink a diluted serving.

After you enjoy bathing at the hot springs, you can relax in the salon for a while as well.

There are three types of rooms: Japanese style room, Japanese/western style room, and the deluxe suite.
All rooms are equipped with an indoor bath, and the deluxe suite has an open air bath.
Amenities such as beautiful Yukata are popular among guests.

The Outstanding Cuisine of Matsunomidori

Matsunomidori is the only accommodation in Noto that uses an inclusive plan.
The inclusive plan, which is still rare in Japan, includes drinks from the lobby and bar, dinner, and midnight snacks all included in the room price. We highly recommend it.

Gorgeous dishes including Japanese and French cuisine, as well as specialties using seasonal ingredients, are served.
