Onsen, the art of bathing in Japan

During your trip to Japan, you plan to visit shrines and temples, enjoy sushi and local cuisine, experience the tea ceremony or meet geisha in Gion district … Among the best experiences, do not forget the onsen, the thermal bath or literally “hot springs”.
There are more than 27,000 hot springs and 3,000 spas in Japan, due to the volcanic origin of the archipelago. Wherever you are, you usually have a nearby station, where you can stay for a weekend. The Japanese, themselves, go there regularly, even for a much shorter period.
Here are our favorite Onsen in Japan.
