Minamida Onsen Hotel Apple Land is located in Hirakawa city of Minami Tsugaru. The hot spring water composition is rare for the Tohoku region and is categorized as weak alkali hot spring. With a strong water flow directly from the source, the apple outdoor bath and apple foot bath (April ~ November) are gaining popularity.
At the “Tsugaru Shokudo Ya-ya do” (Tsugaru style restaurant), guests can savor local cuisine. The most popular feature is the noresore-don served at breakfast, which allows guests to add any topping to their bowl of rice. Every guest room has been decorated to preserve the wa Japanese atmosphere and ikebana (Japanese flower arrangement) is arranged by the hostess. As a special service, there are apples grown in Aomori in every room’s refrigerator as a gift. The free shuttle to and from JR Hirosaki Station makes Minamida Onsen Hotel a very convenient lodging choice for travelers in Tsugaru.
