    Nigata Pref. Nigatashi Akiha-ku Kusouzuchou 1-4-5
    This hot spring is a mere 30 seconds on foot from the Ban'etsu West Line's Higashi-Niitsu Station. Located at the foot of Mt. Akiha, this day trip hot spring is reminiscent of southern Europe. It is a weak alkaline sodium-chloride spring, which is said to be effective for chronic skin disease, infirmness in children, chronic gynecological disorders, and the like. The luxurious spring water clings to the skin and the abundance of hydrogen carbonate ion has a smoothing effect. There are also many relaxation facilities within the spa, such as restaurants, cafes, beauty salons and healing rooms.

    Comfortable! I have visited some travel spot in Niigata City several times since 2009. The more interesting thing for me is Onsen here! I might come back again next year!
