Explore the small town, check out the hot springs museum, or sample cookies made with mountain spring water. Have a traditional onsen experience and bathe in two types of hot spring waters: the “gold,” which is rich in salt and iron, and the “silver,” which contains radium and carbonate.

  • The hot water is wonderful here after all. There aren't many tourist attractions, but there are plenty of shops from the old days, not only souvenirs, antiques and bamboo shops, but also some of them are quite entertaining. However, it is careful because it inadvertently buys too much if it likes it.

  • It is a convenient hot spring town with direct buses from Osaka, Kyoto and Itami Airport. The quality of the hot spring is different in gold and silver baths, and it is unbearable for the hot spring lover. It was easily sown because it was not so big even if I walked. There were some fashionable shops.

  • The whole town is like a hot spring town, and it has a unique taste. It may be a small place compared to other huge hot spring resorts, but it is surrounded by mountains, so there is a taste that cannot be replaced by other hot spring resorts. There is also a trail from Mt. Rokko, and it has been used for a long time.
