Unwind in a tiny onsen town in the mountains
Sawatari Onsen is a retreat in every sense of the word. This quiet onsen town is home to just 10 ryokan inns, where you can unwind in onsen fed by the soft, soothing water of an 800-year-old spring.
Step off the tourist trail and enjoy the authenticity of this tiny town where you can appreciate traditional architecture and Japanese hospitality under the gaze of nearby mountains.
