Asama Onsen Hot Spring

Travel Guide - Asama Onsen Hot Spring


With over 1,000 years of history, the Asama Onsen hot spring area has traditionally been a place of relaxation in Matsumoto.

Successive lords of Matsumoto Castle loved this hot spring, and during the Edo Period (1603 - 1868), a palatial bath was built for use by those lords.
Even nowadays, one can enjoy the same "Biwa-no-Yu" hot spring here.

A dip in any of these traditional baths will surely relax and satisfy you as they did the lords of ancient times.
