Okuhida Onsen

Okuhida Onsen

The hot spring area referred to as Okuhida is actually made-up of five onsen towns: Hirayu-Onsen, Shin-Hirayu Onsen, Shin-Hotaka Onsen, Fukuji Onsen and Tochio Onsen. Positioned between Kamikochi and Takayama, Okuhida is a convenient place to stay when wanting to visit both popular destinations. Spread-out over a large area, the towns offer a variety of accommodation, natural hot springs and nearby attractions. Among them, public hot springs and some ‘ryokan’ (traditional guesthouses) are open for day-visitors, charging between JPY500-JPY2000 depending on the establishment.
