Onsen

Hotel Village draws onsen from three source springs—Yubatake, Bandaiko and Watanoyu. These waters have been known since ancient times for their excellent healing effects. (For neuralgia, arthralgia, skin conditions, diabetes, high blood pressure, arteriosclerosis, chronic dyspepsia, etc.)
Be sure to spend some time soaking in a hot bath surrounded by nature.

It is sure to leave you with memories that will last a lifetime.
