Lake Shikotsu Tsuruga Resort Spa MIZU NO UTA is situated deep in a tranquil forest on the shores of pristine Lake Shikotsu. Under the concept “the healing power of water,” guests of the hotel are treated to a form of hospitality like no other which features personalized, friendly service backed by beautiful Lake Shikotsu and its lush forests. Welcome lounge Wakka is the hotel’s unique open air lobby that marks the start of every guest’s luxurious getaway experience. The word wakka means water in the Ainu language. At the center of the welcome lounge is a suikinkutsu, a type of Japanese garden ornament and music device, which stands as a tribute to the hotel’s name MIZU NO UTA, or the song of water. The gentle, comforting sound of echoing water also flows into the corridor leading to the guestroom wing, marking the beginning of a getaway soothed by the power of water. The guestroom wing is a no-shoe zone where guests move about in their bare feet to explore the many warm communal areas, including the inviting guestroom lounge Apeso, audio corner and library. Each of the hotel’s spacious and luxuriously appointed guestrooms also feature a massage chair and coffee maker. For their fine dining experience, guests can choose from healthy buffet-style cuisine using mainly organic produce sourced locally or traditional Japanese kaiseki cuisine that serves seasonal delicacies in artistically prepared dishes. The hotel’s spa zone features all natural hot spring waters that are known to beautify the skin as well as a spa, reflexology treatment area and a fitness gym. Join us to discover a lakeside retreat like no other in the world.
