Nozawa Onsen Onsen Guide

There’s a reason why Nozawa Onsen has “onsen” in its name – a wealth of piping hot mineral rich onsen water lies deep beneath the vicinity of the town. Nozawa Onsen has capitilised on this and built 13 public onsens around town, which are free to use for both residents and guests. A donation box is generally set up outside each hot spring, which helps the upkeep of the premises.

Most hotels will provide a yukata robe and towel, with these and your personal toiletries, you’re set to onsen-hop for the evening!
