Shirakawa-go-no-yu hot springs resort (天然温泉 白川郷の湯)
Shirakawa-go-no-yu hot springs resort is located in Shirakawa-go, a village whose traditional Gasshozukuri-style farmhouses have been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The hot spring water contains natural sodium chloride, which has a warming effect and also helps to ensure smooth skin. There is a comprehensive range of baths; both the men’s baths and the women’s baths include indoor baths, outdoor baths and saunas; from the outdoor baths, bathers can view the peaks of Mt. Hakusan, the cluster of Gasshozukuri-style farmhouses, and, flowing right below them, the Shogawa River. The resort has both Japanese-style and Western-style rooms, so visitors who are looking for a more relaxed hot springs and tourism experience can enjoy an overnight stay.
