I love this small village in the valley with a hotel and Onsen. The whole village is with a Sulfur smell from the hot spring. Also is a change to spot some wide life such as bird or deer.

You can rent boots, purchase souvenirs, drinks and visit the loo before proceeding the trails and boardwalk. Nice design at the look for more pictures.

Nice place for photo opps, worth walking 20 mins to Okunuyuma stream for free footbath and to enjoy the natural landscape. Note uphill and downhill climbs involved. Spent only 1 to 2 hours.

A great place to visit. Was here with a tour group years back and was rushed. Go at about 11am and avoid tour bus crowds. Explore all the trails.
