Tsuchiyu Onsen (土湯温泉)

4.0

Hot Spring / Hot Spring Bath

A hot spring district connected to an ancient legend concerning Prince Shotoku located in western Fukushima City 16 kilometers from Fukushima Station. The area is host to 17 hot spring hotels and old-fashioned public bathhouses as well as more casual day trip hot spring bathhouses, and visitors can choose which facility or facilities to visit based on their interests and mood. A variety of source springs are found in the area, including simple hot springs, simple sulfur springs, and hydrogen carbonate springs, each purported to offer different health benefits. Tsuchiyu Onsen, together with Togatta and Naruko, is also considered one of the three primary locations where kokeshi wooden dolls, a traditional craft, emerged, and visitors can observe kokeshi artisans at work or even try painting their own kokeshi doll at Matsuya Products Shop. Famed for its flowers as well as its history, visitors can also delight in this hot spring district's many seasonal flowering trees and, in the fall, gorgeous autumn foliage.

          Fukushima is a blend of fantastic scenery, delectable sake, and kaleidoscopic colors. This nature-rich prefecture displays its splendor from the hidden Abukuma Cave underground right to the top of its sky-high mountain road, known as the Bandai-Azuma Skyline.
