Niigata Onsen: Enjoy Spectacular Hot Spring Views at Yuzawa's Takahan Ryokan!

Joetsu, Uonuma And Yuzawa Ryokan

In winter, the town of Yuzawa in Niigata comes alive, and here you can enjoy a relaxing soak in Niigata onsen waters after a day of skiing. The hot spring source for Takahan, one of the area's famous ryokan, were discovered more than 900 years ago. At 43 degrees Celsius, the spring water is the perfect temperature for a warm bath, letting bathers remain for longer periods of time. Because it is said to make the skin supple and moist, it is known in Japanese as tamago no yu [hot water of egg] which implies the hot spring has qualities that keep one eternally young. In the inn where Japanese author Kawabata Yasunari wrote the novel Snow Country in the early Showa era, I enjoyed the hot spring fed from the source and dishes to which particular attention was paid to the local ingredients used.
