Travel Guide - Shirahone Onsen Hot Spring

InformationInformation

Nestled in the mountains, the term "secret host spring" is perfect for Shirahone Onsen. The hot spring is so highly-regarded people have said of it: "If you take a bath here for three days, you will not catch cold for three years." It is famous for its opaque white water. At the source, this hot spring's waters is odorless and colorless, but it becomes cloudy when exposed to air. Drinking this water is said to be beneficial or the stomach and intestines. Each of the eleven lodges has its own source from the hot spring, and their characteristics are said to be slightly different.
Outdoor Onsen hot springs in splendid natural settings are very popular and a great experience. Bathing as the new spring leaves appear on the trees or equally among the changing colors of autumn. Whatever the season, it gives a wonderful feeling of freedom. Kamikochi and Norikura-kogen are nearby, so the hot spring is a good base from which to explore the surrounding mountains. (The outdoor Onsen hot springs are closed from November through April.)
