A hazy winter dream come true for me but there’s more to these waters than meets the eye.
Newsflash: There are several ways you can immerse yourself in the high temperatures of an onsen.
Onsen means hot springs in Japanese…
I’m actually quite proud to share 7 types of Onsen you can experience in Japan as they cover a diverse range. While it seems other than the obvious where one bathes in these thermal spas just like that time I got to visit the magical Pamukkale in Turkey, you actually have a delightful array to choose from.
From full on to mere sensory experiences, from various places all around Japan, you’ll really have to watch the episode for yourself to see exactly what I mean!
Plus, the best part is that you can enjoy these hot springs all year long, throughout the seasons, making each experience so unique: once is never enough.
As you’ll see, some places are for leisure, some are religious sites, some offer the whole onsen experience wearing a traditional yakata and so much more.
Onsen is so popular in Japan. So trust that you’ll find something that fits your preference and budget.
While I am not one to shy away from more affordable public onsens, wouldn’t you jump at the chance to experience a luxury onsen resort? Yes there is such a thing!
