Myoko is home to many hotsprings. There are public onsen and onsen that are part of a hotel. The onsen in hotels can be used even if you are not a guest of the hotel. The amazing outdoor onsen at Tsubame are probably the most famous in Myoko and they are free to use. Check out our Tsubame onsen page here.
Myoko has seven different onsen areas which all have their source deep in Mt Myoko. Although the areas are all served from the same mountain the waters in each area are very different. This is what makes Myoko such a great place for experiencing onsens, every area will offer you a different type of bath.
There are five different kinds of onsen in Myoko. The onsen are defined by their mineral contents and appearance. Each type of onsen offers differing but great health benefits for the skin and body.
There are three different colours of water that emerge from the Myoko hot springs. Tsubame area has a beautiful milky white colour. Seki has a reddish coloured water, Ikenotaira has a black colored water which is the colour of the minerals floating in the water. Akakura and other areas have a clear water.
