Awazu Onsen

Hot Spring / Hot Spring Bath
This hot spring district is the oldest in the Hokuriku region and boasts a history stretching back more than 1,300 years. The waters of the pure, 100% saline bitter springs found here possess a variety of qualities but are particularly known for their vasodilation effect. These waters are said to treat chronic illnesses caused by poor blood circulation, such as nerve pain, high blood pressure, and muscle soreness due to hardening of the arteries. The area generates an astounding volume of piping hot water, and every hotel here has its own privately dug source spring. The district combines both showy brilliance and mature elegance, and the literary master Katai Tayama once noted, I found Awazu Onsen to be the most quiet and comfortable. Today, the district is also gaining attention as a mecca for sweethearts, and all of the inns in the area offer unique, romantic plans for couples.
