    At that time, Hirokawara earned a living by making a few rice fields and wasabi, and doing mountain work such as charcoal grilling.
    There were about four thatched-roof farmhouses scattered around.

    The width of the Fujiki River was much wider than it is now, and it was a riverbank with huge stones.

    A facility for drinking water using spring water.
    The amount of water in the Fujiki River was abundant, and carp, haya, and sweetfish were rising from the river along the water pipe.
  • Naming of Seiransou

    In the early spring of 1930, the year after the main building was completed, Nikaho Kajo happened to be there.
    I once pulled a traveling cane here.

    At this time, Nikaho formed a family as a Chinese poet and calligrapher of the present generation, and his name was known to Ichii.
    Still staying in the new building with the scent of wood, he praised the scenery in the vicinity and reached the stage, giving the Chinese poetry of the three chapters of Gozen.

    Origin of Seiransou is intended that reflect their character taken out from among the poems poem of this Kojookina, those named to this than changed the Yumotokan Seiransou
  • Yokosuka Naval Hospital Temporary Sanatorium Era

    1943 1943

    Became a temporary ward at the request of the Yokosuka Navy
    *General guests cannot stay, but the inn was allowed to operate independently)
  • The attack on Pearl Harbor carried out by the Japanese Navy developed into the Pacific War.
    As the front expanded, the hospital was unable to accommodate the ever-increasing number of naval injuries.

    At Yokosuka Navy Hospital, as a countermeasure, Yugawara Ryokan set up a temporary ward for the Navy, recalling that the hot spring inn in Yugawara was used as a sanatorium for army sick soldiers during both the Sino-Japanese and Russo-Japanese roles. I asked the union to arrange it.

    The content was that general guests could not stay, but the inn allowed the inn to operate independently.

    1. General guests are not allowed to stay
    2. Manage buildings and facilities at the inn
    3. Accommodation fee is 2.80 yen per person with 3 meals per night
