Aoni Stream flows from the Minami Hakkoda mountain range and is characterized by the surrounding virgin forest, waterfalls, and rapid currents. Aoni Onsen is located within the Aoni Stream and is surrounded by ravines. It is a well-known onsen inn as the “lamp inn” throughout Japan.
The lamps of the inn are lit as the evening approaches, changing the atmosphere to a magical world. The lamps are the only light source in the inn. There are no TVs, refrigerators, or outlets in the guest rooms. This “luxury” of having nothing is exactly what attracts visitors to the Lamp Inn.
Dinner includes seasonal Japanese country style cuisine. Guests enjoy the simple meal which uses fresh mountain vegetables and river fish, the blessing of nature from the mountains and river.

The Hidden Hot Spring Lit by Lamps
The inn features an open outdoor bath, a beech-wood bath, and a stone bath where bathers can enjoy the calming sounds of the stream. The elegant air created by the lamp lights at night treats guests with a luxurious moment of peace and quiet.
