It was brought up as a secret hot spring!

This hotel really has no electricity. These experiences are romantic too now and again. The food was also delicious and it was fun sightseeing as well, so if a secret place is what you're looking for, it's really recommended.

It's a hot spring where you can enjoy the spectacular mountain scenery

It's a hot spring in a mountain area where the altitude is high. From the outdoor bath you can see beautiful scenery. The Hinoki open-air bath and the warmth of wood were also very pleasant.

Heike's faint legend

It's famous as one of the secret bases of Shikoku, where the Heike fleeing legend remains. I found the dishes using local ingredients tasty.

Recommended secret hot spring

I recommend Shirahone hot spring in Nagano prefecture. They have hot springs with a lot of charm which can only be experienced here. I think it's a very attractive hot spring inn.

Shimokita Peninsula has a secret hot spring.

There are many secret hot springs nationwide but I recommend this hotel where I stayed. Though it's a secret hot spring hotel, the building is large and they are fully equipped with facilities.

I recommend Ryujin (God of dragon) Onsen although it's far in the mountains

It's in a place in the mountains where transportation is very inconvenient but the quality of the hot springs was the best out of all the hot springs that I've ever been in. The seafood and mountain food were very delicious.
