Visit the hot springs of Hitoyoshi

Hitoyoshi Onsen is a relatively young onsen resort, having opened in 1910. There are now more than 50 spring sources in the town, with around 25 public bath houses where you can sample the waters.

How to Get There

Hitoyoshi Onsen is accessible by car.

Top waters for onsen lovers

The naturally heated water is mildly alkaline and carbonated, said to leave the skin feeling soft and supple. Relax with a range of bathing options, including cypress wood baths, rotenburo (open air bathing), stone baths and ashiyu (foot baths) which you can find around the town.

Check out this top ryokan

Originally a castle town, Hitoyoshi is the home to Hitoshi Onsen Ayunosato, a ryokan (traditional inn) which also has its own hot springs. If you want to dine in style and stay in a place with a rich history, this is a top choice in Hitoyoshi.
