A friendly and heartwarming inn

Welcome to Oshu Akiu Onsen Rantei

Oshu Akiu Onsen Rantei is approximately 30 minutes by car from downtown Sendai.
As it is located on a hill, all the Japanese-style rooms overlook the hot spring town of Akiu.
We are proud of our cuisine which gets the best out of seasonal ingredients and of the relaxation that's on offer courtesy of staff who won the first prize in Japan's Esthetique Grand Prix.
The name Rantei originates from the Orchid Pavilion, where poems written by Wang Xizhi were compiled into the Langtingji Xu, which has been used as a model for Chinese calligraphy for the past 1600 years. Our kyokusui garden and arbor have been inspired by those images and replicate that environment.
