Travel Guide - Tamagawa Onsen Hot Spring

InformationInformation

Tamagawa Onsen Hot Spring is located between Lake Tazawa-ko and Hachimantai Plateau. This hot spring resort, 41 kilometers north of Lake Tazawa-ko on Route 341, has a variety of hot springs, baths and treatments. The hot spring has a flow rate of 9,000 liters per minute, which is the highest flow rate hot spring in Japan. A paved path leads up the ravine through the steam and bubbling vents to open-air baths. Indoor baths are also available at the inns there, of course.
Since discovered by a local hunter in 1680, Tamagawa Onsen has been popular as a therapeutic bath because the hot spring water has strong acidity (pH1.2) and also radioactive radium gas and other radioactive materials are dissolved in it.
Serious soakers who would like to organize a stay have two options. Tamagawa Onsen Ryokan inn is the original and traditional hot spring facility, and is more suited for hot spring cure. Shin-Tamagawa Onsen (New Tamagawa Onsen) Ryokan inn is a newly built facility and is more suited for tourists because the facility is situated further away from the source and its hot spring water is less stimulus.
Buses from JR Tazawa-ko Station run to Tamagawa Onsen three times to four times daily between mid-April and late October.
