Tokachigawa Hot Spring

Tokachigawa Onsen is famous for its "mall hot springs," a rare type of hot spring in the world.

Tokachigawa Onsen is a unique hot spring in Japan that gushes out "mall hot spring" containing high levels of plant organic matter. The hot spring gushes out through layers of plants that have been deposited over a long period of time, making it one of the rarest springs in the world, and it has been selected as a Hokkaido Heritage Site. The smooth water, which is derived from plants, warms the body to the core after just a short soak, and keeps the body warm afterwards. It is also known as "hot water for beautiful skin" because it has a moisturizing effect like lotion. The hot spring resort area is dotted with numerous lodging facilities, including luxury inns with open-air baths and large hotels with many guest rooms. Visitors to Tokachigawa Onsen can enjoy experiences and events throughout the four seasons, such as hot-air balloon rides where they can view the magnificent scenery of Tokachi from above, and the "Sairinka" event in winter, which takes visitors into a fantastic world created by the night sky, snow, and countless light objects.
