    Approximately one hour by car from Kinugawa Onsen Station.

    Located in the Kawamata Onsen area, also known as "Hitou" (secluded hot spring),
    "Kura" is proud of its fresh hot spring water.

    Along Nikko National Park, a quiet forest embraced by the great nature,
    and Kinugawa River, a clean stream of water with a rocky and green valley,
    there is the outdoor bath of Kura.

    The scenic view of this outdoor bath heals your everyday fatigue physically and mentally.

    hot spring in a kura
    The hot springs of the kura are all a source of hot water. We do not add water, heat or circulate it.
    Also, the hot water contains a lot of "metasilic acid" in its ingredients.
    This "metasilic acid" gives the skin moisture and shine.
