Welcome to Shohakutei Azumaso

More than 100 years have passed since Tendo Hot Spring was established.
For generations, we have kept alive a spirit and elegance
that cherishes the seasons at our inn.
Enjoy Japanese gardens that have been here since the first generation
of owners as well as guest rooms with different styles facing those gardens.
We serve local cuisine that embraces the seasonal taste of
Yamagata, such as wild vegetables
in spring and mushrooms in autumn.
We strive to provide hospitality that our guests will never forget,
with the philosophy of entertaining each guest as though they are family,
even if they stay for just one night.
