Tsukioka Onsen opened in 1915, boasting of being one of the hot springs with the highest sulfur contents in Japan. The rare, beautiful emerald green sulfur hot spring is called "a hot spring to make you more beautiful," as it makes one's skin silky smooth, and is popular for women in particular. The town features shops with a wide variety of genres, such as sake specialist shops and shops where you can experience making your own senbei rice crackers, and so the town is praised as being "a hot spring town you want to walk through."

All year


We recommend taking a walk at dusk in the hot spring town surrounded by the scent of sulfur, when the lights shimmer, and geiko (professional female entertainers) in gorgeous kimonos come and go. We highly recommend that you stay the night and enjoy this hot spring town filled with the atmosphere of Japan. There are a wide variety of places to stay, from large-scale facilities to small inns that become your own personal hideaway.
