Ayabe Onsen, hot springs in the forest
Nestled in the mountains and surrounded by forest, Ayabe onsen is the place to reconnect with nature. These hot springs feature a variety of bathing experiences: a large bath, a medicinal bath, an open-air bath, and a sauna. The healing waters are a natural remedy to all kinds of ailments. Soak. Rejuvenate. Leave completely cleansed. The facility includes accommodations, a restaurant, local products, and recreational grounds, so you don’t really have to leave.
