Kyoto’s Best Onsen

By Emma, Australia, February 2013

No reviews, be the first!

Onsen (hot springs) can be found in Japan’s countryside, in natural surrounds ideal for outdoor bathing and with direct access to geothermally heated springs.

Be careful not to confuse onsen with the more widespread city-based public bathhouses (sento) where baths are filled with heated tap water and therefore contain none of the natural minerals and their associated healing benefits.
