Hot spring

Taking an onsen is not only bathing for Japanese people but also an important cultural activity. People enjoy beautiful scenery and food as well as atmosphere of a Japanese inn. Onsens contain various chemical ingredients which heal sicknesses and bad health conditions. Many authors and artists created their works while they were staying at an onsen.

The Yugawara historical onsen was depicted in Manyoshu, Collection of Ten Thousand Leaves (the oldest poems in Japan) compiled at the end of the 8th Century. Many well-known authors loved Yugawasa. Hakone has outstanding onsens where the beautiful scenery of the deep ravine, Mt. Fuji and Ashinoko Lake can be seen.
