    Yamanashi Pref. Yamanashishi Yatsubo 1669-18
    With Mt. Fuji straight ahead and the Kofu Basin down below, great views can be had while taking a bath in this hot spring. The bath opens one hour before sunrise so opening hours vary depending on the season. The spring water in the Kocchi-no-yu bath is completely colorless and transparent while the freshly poured bath water in the Acchi-no-yu bath is a clear and bright yellowish brown color. The water is said to be good for those who are overly sensitive to the cold, those who have nerve pains, and also aids fatigue recovery. The new water sources make it more difficult to catch a chill after the bath and cause little irritation to the skin so it is good for children or the elderly. As well as hot spring baths, there are souvenir shops, snack bars, restaurants and outdoor viewing terraces on site.

    A nice little onsen, hotspring, (went to the higher PH one) with three baths. A nice relaxing soak after two days of walking the mountains of Yamanashi. On a good day you also get a great view of Mt...
