Japan’s onsen tradition dates back thousands of years. Both a luxury and daily necessity, thermal hot springs serve the villagers as baths as well as sources of hot water for cooking.
The private thermal onsen baths at Residence Yasushi are fed with the highly valued Shinyu waters. The prized milky hues of the water evolve depending on the season and are known locally as ‘five colours water”. These onsen waters are rich in various minerals, abundant with the highly sought-after floating yunohana (mineral water flowers), and especially beneficial to your overall well-being and health. From this area you can also experience Nozawa’s many public onsen baths.
