Bus trip took half an hour from Kagaonsen station. Spend the whole day here, delighting in the greens of the gorge, souvenir shopping and admiring the craftsmanship, having an onsen in the women's public bath (an experience) and hanging out at cafe Bau which is slightly funky and has good coffee and a nice owner. Make sure you visit the 2500 year old cedar. Stunning!

Go try the public bath. Its a real experience plus many locals also go there.

200yen for towels. 100yen for soap. Entry is 440yen.

Or if you are short of time, there is a free foot onsen outside the bathouse. Also there is a mechanical clock outside the bathhouse. Everyhour little dolls will give a small performance.

A lot of restaurants around the area.
Easily accessible from Kagaonsen Station by CAN Bus. Yama(Mountian) route. 1day pass 1000yen.

Lovely Japanese onsen town with beautiful river trail for walking as well as nice old streets for shopping. Definitely worth to spend 1-2 days to enjoy the scenery and excellent onsen.

Though we didn't plan it, the day we went it was incredibly quiet, with not one other tourist in sight. It was drizzling, but we undertook the walking track and do not regret it. Our two teenagers found plenty to keep them amazed and interested and cannot wait to to re-visit this piece of paradise. We caught a JR train to Kaga Onsen and hopped straight onto a local bus to Yamanaka Onsen just outside the station.
