Sarugakyo Mikuni Onsen Area
Sarugakyo Mikuni Onsen Area holds six onsen resorts, such as Sarugakyo Onsen, Hoshi Onsen and so on. Boasting abundant hot spring water, Sarugakyo Onsen sits in the vicinity of Lake Akayako. Since long ago, travelers on Mikuni-kaido road (an old highway connecting Kanto region and Niigata as it is) would recover from the weariness of travel here. Hoshi Onsen is one of secret onsen that is truly representative of Japan. Enjoy the elegant scenery and traditional Japanese atmosphere.
