    Thank you very much for the inquiry. We are afraid that we do not have a onsen, but the inside public bathroom. Also a private inside bathroom, not onsen, in a room is available.

Gion HATANAKA serves Kaiseki dinner and Japanese breakfast that consist of fish and seafood if you book rooms with dinner and breakfast or rooms with only breakfast. Please note that rooms with meals include no performance. Since we are not able to accept requests for some dietary restrictions below, please kindly note the information in advance and proceed the booking. · Vegetarian and Vegan options that avoid fish and seafood. (fish is included in almost all dishes) · Gluten-free, gluten allergy and soybean allergy options that avoid soy sauce. (almost all of dishes include soy sauce as the seasoning) · Avoiding fish and seafood due to dislikes or allergies (All dishes include mainly fish, seafood and bonito soup stock) · Avoiding sake such as the cooking liquor (The liquor is contained in most of the dishes and some ingredients are made with sake) If you would like to avoid 'only raw fish' or 'no shrimp' for example, and if you would notify at least 3 days before the check-in date, we would handle them. However, unfortunately notifying on the day of check-in on Japan time, we are afraid that it is not available. We appreciate your understanding and cooperating.
