Hôtel De Première Minowa

Hôtel De Première Minowa

Enjoy gazing out upon the evening sky bathed in orange, and the sun setting behind Mt. Bandai from the lookout (The best time to see this view is from August to October).

A resort perched in the highlands of the Bandai-Asahi National Park. Minowa shows a different face throughout the seasons, whether it is colored with fresh greens in spring, offering relief from the heat of summer, adorned with beautiful autumn foliage, or being used as a ski field in winter.

Hôtel De Première Minowa is a fantastic place to enjoy relaxation, beauty, dining, and luxury to the full. What's more, guests can satiate all five senses with authentic French and Japanese cuisine. Surrounded by granite, the main hot spring bath uses very soft pure water that flows down the valley from Mt. Minowa. The onsen baths, with their water full of healing negative ions, are very popular among guests.
