    The charm of Kawamata Onsen

    Kawamata Onsen, also known as a "hidden hot spring," is located in the northwestern part of Nikko City, Tochigi Prefecture, near the headwaters of the Kinugawa River.
    Located in Nikko National Park, this hot spring resort is surrounded by lush green mountains and is located in the heart of nature.

    In the surrounding area, there is a contrast between the lush green nature and the sharp rocky valley.
    We pride ourselves on being able to see views that you wouldn't see on a daily basis.

    The "geyser" where you can see the source of the spring blowing out directly, and the
    Seto Aikyo" is also nearby with a wonderful view of the autumn leaves, which has been selected as one of the "100 best scenic spots in Tochigi".
    It is also located in Nikko City, which is one of Japan's most popular tourist destinations.
    Nikko Toshogu Shrine, which is visited by many foreigners, and Nikko Edomura, where you can experience the Japanese culture of the past.
    There are a lot of them around.

      Geyser

      Hot water gushing forth among rocks creates breathtaking scenes. It gushes every 1 hour a height of 20 to 30 meters. An observatory platform and footbath facilities are available.

      You may be able to take an auspicious one with a rainbow over the geyser that blows out like the picture. It takes 3 minutes from Kura.

      If the room in Kura is close to the geysers, you can also see the scene blowing out from the window.

        Waterfalls

        There are various waterfalls around Kura.

        Go to the vicinity of each waterfall and experience the effects of stress relief and relaxation by negative ions.

        It's also very nice to take a walk on a mountain path before soaking in a hot spring and soak in hot water slowly after such a light exercise to heal fatigue.
