Hitoyoshi Onsen 人吉温泉
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 train.
On the Haisatsu train line, you can get off at Hitoyoshi or Hitoyoshi, but bear in mind that neither station is in a central location.
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), mason work 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 Nabeya Honkan, 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.
