Katakura Hall, Suwa
(3.6/5 based on 110+ reviews on the web)
Constructed in 1928 as a public spa house built over natural hot springs, Katakura Hall features nostalgic European-style architecture typical of the roaring 1920s. With two medium-depth marble pools lined by gravel, this historic establishment can take up to 100 people at a time, and its water has no smell of sulfur. Admire the spa house's stained glass and various sculptures, such as two human-size griffons guarding the exit, a small exhibition featuring an antique telephone, and a typewriter once used in the hall. You can order a meal or browse through a small gift shop. Make Katakura Hall part of your personalized Suwa itinerary using our Suwa itinerary builder.

  • It is located in Western-style building in historic hot springs. Hot water is not too hot, you can slowly and soak. Stimulates foot stone tiled floor, to be synergy benefits of hot springs. Also I had standing water water pressure takes up the upper part of the body, so a swelling of the upper body of thought.

  • I asked friends and holiday afternoons. Families, was crowded with local people. And smells civilization era public baths in a solemn appearance at old buildings that were nice, but a good soak in the bathtub. While walking on a stone was laid on the floor, especially the stimulus fight was amazingly quiet, rarely.
