Kawaji Onsen Yakushi no Yu

This day spa is located in Kawaji Onsen District in Nikko City, Tochigi Prefecture. Its simple weakly alkaline hot springs have earned it the nickname Bihada no Yu for supposedly giving people beautiful skin. It is also said to help with conditions such as nerve and joint pain.

The facility features indoor baths and mixed gender open-air baths. The spa, which offers great views of the scenery of the Ojika River, is patronized mostly by locals but also by many tourists.

Nikko Area

The Nikko area, in the northwestern part of the prefecture, is particularly mountainous. In the midst of the rich nature, including the 2,486-meter-high volcano Mt. Nantai, Lake Chuzenji, and Kegon Falls, there are numerous shrines and temples that are registered as UNESCO Cultural Heritage sites. From Kinugawa Onsen to Kawaji Onsen, hot springs can also be found throughout the area. There are a wide range of outdoor activities to enjoy as well, such as stand-up paddleboarding in the summer and snowshoeing in the winter.
