A historic Onsen town visited by many great Japanese writers, this unique Onsen-kyo boasts thermal spring water with a range of qualities and benefits. Select a hot spring depending on your physical condition or mood. There are also various nature trails along the mountain stream. Popular both as a summer resort and when the autumn leaves on display, why not take a stroll around the town with the local specialty “To-te-yaki” (something like a thick crepe) in hand?
