Takaragawa Onsen Osenkaku Inn
A grand outdoor bath overlooking the pristine stream of Takaragawa
Takaragawa Onsen is located in the Minakami Onsen area, one of the four major hot springs in Gunma Prefecture. Refresh yourself in the largest open-air bath in Japan along the pristine stream of Takaragawa. The resort ranked as one of Japan's 10 best hot springs in the travel guidebook with the largest share in English-speaking countries. Day-trip visitors are also welcome to enjoy the bath.
More than a mixed-gender bath
The baths of Takaragawa Onsen are generally mixed gender, and both men and women rent designated bath attire when taking a bath. For women who are not comfortable with mixed-gender baths, be assured since there are also women-only baths.
Experiencing hot springs of all seasons
In the nature-surrounded Takaragawa Onsen, you can enjoy bathing while gazing at the beautiful foliage in the fall and the snow in winter. Since it is a snowy region with even a ski resort nearby, taking a hot open-air bath while viewing the scenic snow is highly recommended.
The guest rooms of Takaragawa Onsen Osenkaku Inn consist of three buildings: the Main Hall, East Building and #1 Annex Building, each decorated in different tastes. Get immersed in the nostalgic atmosphere of a traditional hot spring inn.
