Onsen Resorts

In Japan, Onsen  are the country’s hot springs and the bathing facilities and traditional inns 

around them. Most Japanese love bathing in Onsen (hot springs), and many believe that the water

can cure certain ailments. There are many volcanoes around Japan, and therefore many Onsen.

Each Onsen is said to have its own healing property. Onsen resorts or hotels either use water from

actual spring or they boil mineral water. Onsen resorts have opened all over the country, and many

hotels have outside baths offering spectacular views. Public baths are also very common in Japan.

They generally have Jacuzzies, garden bathe, and saunas. At Onsen, people actually wash their

bodies before getting into the water. It is bad manners to use soap or towels in the bath itself.



Onsen Resorts in Kyushu

Kyushu is known for the best and most picturesque Onsen resorts in all of Japan.

The profusion of Onsen is due in part to Kyushu’s very landscape: it’s home to no less than

9 volcano groups that are responsible for creating the island’s thermal waters.
