Main hot spring onsen bath

A soak in the onsen is the morning when the air at its most pure and when you can feel the nature of Mount Sakado is truely marvelous. The onsen water is supposed to be very effective at relieving fatigue as it is a sodium chloride hot spring (hypotonic, alkalescent, and high temperature water). After a day filled with fun activities, take a moment to lounge in the open air onsen and relax as you gaze at the star-filled sky.
