Yuyado Souan is a quaint ryokan renovated 120-year old folk houses composed of several annexes, accommodation buildings, a restaurant, a concept shop and bath houses. Souan, originally a fish shop, was founded as a hot spring inn 50 years ago. And in 2004, it was totally renewed to the present shape and reborn as Shimane's representative luxury ryokan. Upon renovation, they relocated old folk houses to the site from all over Japan while furnishing them with British antique furniture, with the theme of fusion of Western and Oriental of the same era.
