Shibukawa

3.1
Often referred to as the "Belly Button of Japan," the city of Shibukawa celebrates its status as the country's geographical center by hosting the Heso Matsuri, or Belly Button Festival. During the late July celebrations, groups of dancers paint faces on their bellies, hide their own heads under large hats, and dance down the street. Trips to Shibukawa usually involve a trip to the hot spring and ski resorts located within the wider metropolitan area. Our Japan trip planner combines visitor reviews with your personal interests to make an itinerary informed by experts, but tailored to suit your style.

Where to stay in Shibukawa

A convenient transport hub for explorations of the hot spring resort towns in the region, Shibukawa offers a handful of fairly plain hotels close to the main train station, and along the route the train follows. Most visitors opt to stay in one of the hot spring resort towns, with Ikaho to the west particularly popular. There, you'll find some luxury resorts, a smattering of ordinary hotels, and the showstopping ryokans, complete with onsite onsens--one of the staples of visits to the area.
