    小野川温泉の共同浴場「尼湯」と「滝の湯」で日帰り入浴しました。どちらも山形交通のバス停のすぐ近くの便利な場所にあります。小野川温泉には2源泉があるようですが共同浴場は高温の4号源泉の湯が浴槽に注がれています。つるりとするなめらかな無色透明の湯です。浴槽の温度は両浴場とも43度ほどの良く温まる温泉でした。「尼湯」はすぐ前の山川商店で200円の入浴券を購入して入ります。「滝の湯」は券売機で 250円の...

    Yamagata Mogami-gun Tozawamura Furukuchi 1525-2

    古口から船に乗ってここに着きます。 船着き場から階段を上ってこの売り場に着きますが、足が悪い人にはしんどいです。店内は土産物がいっぱいありますがどれもよくあるタイプで乗り場で買うのも、他の道の駅でも同じです。トイレがあり、目の前のバス亭から古口に換えれます。一人410円です。

Yamagata Areas

around-area-map

Although often overlooked, Yamagata prefecture by no means lacks appeal: the Yamadera temple trail through the mountains, deliciously tender Yonezawa wagyu, and over 100 steaming hot springs, most notably Zao Onsen, await visitors. When winter comes, the snowcapped peaks become dotted with skiers by day and onsen-goers by night, while summer brings the celebration of juicy Yamagata cherries.
