Watari Onsen (渡り温泉)

Hot Spring / Hot Spring Bath

The waters of this hypotonic mildly alkaline high temperature spring (simple spring), one of the 12 which make up the Hanamaki Onsenkyo hot spring district, are said to treat such ailments as nerve pain, joint pain, frozen shoulders, chronic digestive diseases, and sensitivity to cold. The Hanamaki Onsenkyo Watari Onsen hotel owns and operates the spring; situated amidst a forest, at night the area is enwrapped in a blanket of tranquil quiet. The hotel's spacious and open outdoor bath offers a view of seasonal flowers blooming in the garden as well as the vast scenery created by the surrounding mountains. The hotel's bath facilities are open 24 hours and are also open to non-guests. Museums dedicated to celebrated authors and artists are located nearby, such as the Miyazawa Kenji Memorial Museum and the Takamura Kotaro Museum; also located not far away is Kamabuchi Falls, a gorgeous waterfall which breaks over and trickles down a large, 8.5 meter tall, 30 meter wide rounded rock outcrop.

          Iwate Areas


          A northern Tohoku prefecture promising peace and quiet, Iwate is sparsely populated, replacing people with snow-capped mountains, history-rich sites, and fields of crops that are to thank for the region's delicious local cuisine. Meander along the three-city Golden Route, where you'll visit the grand Buddhist temples of Hiraizumi and the Tono folk villages before tasting the three famed noodle dishes of Morioka.
