Yunokawa Onsen Hot Spring

Travel Guide - Yunokawa Onsen Hot Spring


Yunokawa Onsen is the oldest hot-spring resort in Hokkaido.
It is said that the wounded warriors healed themselves here during the time of the Boshin War (1868 - 1869).

There is a tranquil feeling in the town, although it is a prominent hot-spring resort in Hakodate with about 30 Ryokan inns situated on both sides of the Matsukura River, which flows through the town into the Straits of Tsugaru.
