Things to do: historic sites, nature, baths
Established in 2005 by the merging of several towns and villages, Semboku boasts an Old Japan atmosphere, punctuated by traditional onsen resorts, old samurai houses, and weeping cherry trees. A trip to Semboku lets you get in touch with nature: several surrounding mountains offer popular hiking destinations, and a scenic lake makes a perfect boating and picnic spot. While tourism in Semboku peaks during cherry blossom season, the town offers skiing opportunities in winter, when snow covers its forested hills and mountains. To arrange what you want to do in Semboku, use our Japan trip itinerary planner.

Where to stay

Traditional Japanese lodges and ryokans dot the picturesque forest landscape of Semboku's Nyuto Onsen, a popular hot spring resort, offering outdoor baths and quaint designs. In Kakunodate, famous for its historic samurai houses, you can find several simple guesthouses, especially near the train station. A number of private lodges, inns, and dormitory-style hostels lie scattered in the surrounding hills, mostly close to ski slopes and mineral hot springs.
