Japan Onsen - an introduction

Japan Onsen are the place to unwind. Apart from the many onsen packages avilable Japan-wide we focus on local mountain onsen (hot springs) in Niigata and Nagano such as Myoko Onsen, Akakura Onsen, Suginosawa Onsen, Ikenotaira Onsen, Tsubame Onsen, Seki Onsen, Madarao, Iiyama and many more. Jigoku-dani valley between Mt. Myoko and Mt. Mae is the rich source of the local onsen hot springs. In Myoko-Kogen the water is taken from Jigoku-dani Valley and provided to the eight spa areas of Myoko-onsen: Akakura, Shin-Akakura, Ikenodaira, Suginosawa, Myoko, Seki, Tsubame and Matsugamine.
