Hot Springs

Travel Bulletin - - JAPAN -

Nat­u­ral hot springs or onsen are pop­u­lar across the coun­try and form a strong part of Ja­panese cul­ture. There are more than 3000 onsen which range from in­door, out­door, gen­der sep­a­rated, mixed, de­vel­oped and un­de­vel­oped. Many hot spring baths be­long to a ryokan (tra­di­tional Ja­panese Inn) while oth­ers are pub­lic bath houses. An overnight stay at a hot spring ryokan is a highly rec­om­mended ex­pe­ri­ence. Try sooth­ing away your stresses away at Hakone Hot Springs near Mt Fuji, about one hour by high speed train from Tokyo.
