蒸庵

JOAN

Yase is home to Japan’s oldest steam-bath culture,
called “kamaburo” (kiln bath), and records tell of the
local villagers
creating these to heal an arrow wound
suffered by Prince Oami
during the Jinshin War
(7th century AD). Drawing inspiration
from this
steam-bath culture, moksa offers three unique
private
sauna rooms (by reservation only)
