Ginzan Onsen

Hot Spring / Hot Spring Bath
An atmospheric hot spring district which retains many traces of Japan's bygone Taisho period. Situated along the Ginzan River, wooden multistory ryokan inns stand eave to eave here, and visitors will feel like they've gone back in time. Particularly in winter when coupled with the surrounding snowscape, the area is a sprawling array of magical scenery, endlessly delighting the many tourists who come here. The area's transparent sulfate spring waters contain an abundance of potassium, calcium, and other minerals, and are said to promote health and aid recovery from fatigue as well as help heal cuts, burns, chronic skin diseases, chronic women's diseases, and muscle soreness.
