Yudanaka Onsen湯田中温泉

Hot Spring / Hot Spring Bath

A hot spring district with a lengthy history, the area was discovered by a Buddhist monk, Chiyu during the reign of Emperor Tenji. The great haiku poet Kobayashi Issa once composed some of his works here and a walking path named after the master leads from the Sekai Heiwa Kannon temple to the pine tree once known as the Ugan no Matsu. The area's clear chloride springs and sulfate springs contain an abundance of sodium and other minerals and are said to aid recovery from fatigue and promote health in addition to alleviating nerve pain, muscle soreness, and gastrointestinal disorders and healing cuts. Their waters are also said to have powerful skin beautifying properties and are popular with women.

          Nagano Areas


          Nagano prefecture is an exciting mix of mountains, hot spring monkeys, and preserved Edo history. At the heart of the Japanese Alps, Nagano is one of the country's most popular destinations, whether in winter for its snow sports and the much-loved Jigokudani Monkey Park or in the warmer months for discovering the undulating hills on foot. For fantastic Edo architecture, head to the Kiso Valley for a 60-kilometer stretch of quaint wooden buildings that marked the Nakasendo route 200 years ago.
