  • Climb the narrow, winding roads are relatively high in ZAO Onsen, hot springs to get a little lost. Maybe better navigation with emphasis on guide signs were lost, and pay the fee at the entrance, right next to the men's dressing area. Cart is not alone in a locked locker. Baths (take a ¥ 100) is divided into upper and lower, adjacent to two places. Back to hot water there are places that just won't wash. It is just soaking in the hot springs! Foliage of trees around the greater visibility toward the white and just hot water temperature is the temperature of water and yunohana and empty, and best Director! In comes up the pleasure of soaking in hot water. We recommend things that come bathing should be avoided when the weather is bad I think, but on a clear day. Too damn hot flushes have good looks, attention! It is.

  • Large parking lot in the mountains, but it is easy to park. Breakfast is open from 6 am. To stay at the ZAO hot spring was available at discounted rates. Also, 支払emashita fee at the Inn because valuables in the hotel went to. There were people so come in the hotel in yukata. Source spring, towards the River on the deck, which served as a foot, wooden deck at yunohana pretty slippery, so caution is required. Is your bath while enjoying nature.

  • It is a favorite outdoor bath. Worth a go a bit far to go here. Bathing fee is 500 yen or less. Dressing room has bath, wash not shading into the bath with hot water only. The inconvenience not hair is falling in the dressing room. Next to the spring river flows through. It is as if nature bath become a monkey. Hot water is simmering and a very soft, nose ー it and smells like. Even on rainy days there guys bathing water in the roof so you can enjoy. It is such baths contained forever, forget time.

  • Great ski village, not that much variety on the mountain though. Go to see the snow ghosts.
  • Great little onsen town with good hiking in the spring, summer and autumn and great skiing in the winter
