5. Sunset Twilight spa & Dinner package   ( Sunset & Twilight time depends on the season, but from any place of your staying, you can see sunset & twilight ) (Duration: 4 hours)

This plan is for non staying guests. Staying guests can enjoy those much cheaper rate. ( $60pp for hot pot 3 course dinner, $55pp for spa facilities package for staying guests)

The Ryokan has a superb view jacuzzi, superb open-air bath and infrared sauna as outdoor equipment, and you can enjoy a superb view from anywhere, but it uses rainwater instead of a natural hot spring, and it takes 12 hours to warm up and need cleaning hot water. It will take some time, so I would like you to make a reservation more than three days in advance if possible. It depends on the weather because it’s outdoors, so you can pay after you come, but you need to make a reservation in advance being ready to use for your arrival. Also, if you can’t use a jacuzzi and a hot water open-air bath for bad weather, we can change to a foot bath on the roofed view deck with tea & sweets. Staying guests can use the spa for $55 per person (incl.GST). It also comes with cosy bathrobe.

Then warm your body and detox with a healthy Infrared sauna with a view. When you come out in the shower, look at the sunset and have a healthy Japanese hotpot dinner or an authentic Japanese food at the magical time, the sky is blue and orange colour on the horizontal line. 

Sunset time varies from season to season, so this plan is a winter time. Daylight saving time will be a little later.

I fall into the illusion of being in heaven while living. How about this experience with your loved ones, friends, and parents? 

Sauna and jacuzzi can accommodate up to 4 people at the same time.

6. Couple sunset pampering package ( Duration 5 hours )

Sunset Heaven Ryokan & Spa treatments are very special. Sound Vibration Healing uses a harmonic-rich singing ball developed in Japan that is performed before and after the massage. It begins with an initial consultation with the client and adjust your body with a therapeutic remedial massage from head to toe using essential oils blended only for you, and finally the supine position, after remedial massage, again sound healing at the end, for a 2-hour treatment that balances the cells of water in your body with sound healing that directly feels the sound of the body. This treatment is a very unique treatment, so there is only one therapist that can do this. Therefore you can’t do treatment at the same time for two. 

That’s why we made that while waiting for the treatment, the partner may use the time to relax in the Jacuzzi. How about a birthday present for your partner? After the treatment, would you like to watch the sunset and have hot pot dinner together? 

If you would like to have experience two of you at the same time, I need to look for another therapist, so need to book in advance. And also fee will increase $300 ( for one spa facilities package, and one more 2h signature treatment. But there is not so much remedial therapist who can do sound vibration therapy too, therefore I need to swap the sound healing time with other therapist for both to be able to experience. ) And need to start 2 hours earlier and need to start with Spa facilities package for reason of essential oils.

After the meal, if the sky is dark, you may also be able to see the full starry sky.
