Yachi Onsen

Hot Spring / Hot Spring Bath
Located in the sprawling Yachi Wetlands, a habitat for alpine plants, this hot spring boasts 400 years of history and is considered one of Japan's top three secluded springs. The Yachi Onsen hot spring inn's bathtubs are filled directly from the bottom with waters said to treat lower back pain and atopy. The inn's bathhouse facilities are open to non-guests, as well, and visitors can stop by for a casual hot spring bath experience. The inn is famous for its dishes made with fresh char raised in the clean spring waters welling forth at the foot of Mt. Takada-odake, part of the Hakkoda Mountains, and whether you choose the sashimi or the grilled char, you're sure to experience culinary bliss. The inn's cuisine is also available to non-guests, so day trip hot spring bathers and visiting mountain climbers should also be sure not to miss the chance to enjoy cuisine prepared with char, edible wild plants, and fresh-picked local vegetables.
