Onsen


Madarao Onsen

Many of the good hotels in the area have onsen (hot springs) plus there are several fine public onsen. These include Yutaki Onsen on Route 117, Hokuryu Onsen in Iiyama City (with fabulous views from the outdoor hot spring (rotemburo) of the five peaks of the Hokushin region and the Sekita mountain range), Togari Onsen with two well known rotenburo (outside pools) and Madarao Kogen Onsen where one can enjoy a relaxing mountain onsen located more than 1000 metres above sea level. Toyoda-mura Onsen Koen Momiji-so (phone 0269-38-3030) situated between Kijimadaira and Madarao is open 10:00 – 20:00 (closed iiyama onsenWednesdays). Adults are ¥500 and children ¥350. Local town onsen are also available and quite inexpensive but usually consist of only one smallish bath. Look for the this symbol (right) on maps and signs when seeking onsen.
