Yamanaka Onsen Soyu Kiku-no-yu山中温泉 総湯・菊の湯

Hot Spring / Hot Spring Bath

The Yamanaka Onsen, located in Kaga City, Ishikawa Prefecture, is a hot springs area with a history going back 1,300 years. The poet Matsuo Basho, who visited the hot springs during the journey that he described in “Oku no Hosomichi (The Narrow Road to the Deep North),” was so impressed by the smooth-feeling water of the springs, which is warm without being excessively hot, that he wrote a Haiku poem in praise of them, in which he suggested that “Bathing in these waters should in itself be sufficient to ensure long life.” The Souyu Kiku-no-yu baths take their Japanese name from this poem; these baths have remained consistently popular since they were first developed. The men’s baths and women’s baths are located in separate, matching buildings.

Ishikawa Main Areas


Long, thin Ishikawa prefecture runs along the Sea of Japan up into Noto Peninsula. Highlights of the seaside towns lining the west coast include Kanazawa, often described as a "Little Kyoto" thanks to its old wooden tea houses and geisha culture as well as its picturesque Japanese garden, Kenroku-en.
