SHIBU ONSEN

Immerse yourself in Japan’s hot spring (onsen) culture when you visit Shibu Onsen and its nine public baths. The gushing sound of onsen water is all that can be heard in this little resort. There are many narrow, cobbled streets to wander around, and plenty of traditional Japanese delights to stumble upon, such as eggs cooking in natural hot spring water (onsen tamago) and yeast buns (manjyu) steaming by the side of the road. Shibu Onsen is the place to visit for a taste of traditional Japanese culture.
