So we introduce our best choices of Higaeri (day trip) Onsen which have nice sceneries and wonderful hot water qualities.

1.7 Recommended Onsens!

「MiMizuku-no-Yu (みみずくの湯)」 and 「Happo-no-Yu (八方の湯)」 from Happo Onsen Area

Happo Onsen Area is located in the West Side (Northern Japanese Alps side) of Hakuba Station, and includes 4 Onsens, MiMizuku-no-Yu, Happo-no-Yu (formerly Daiichi Sato-no-Yu), Daini Sato-no-Yu and Obinata-no-Yu.

These Onsens take hot water from same source of spring. This spring has high alkalinity and good for your skins.

Alkalinity reach to over pH11 and this is very rare on a global basis. It is highest among Japanese Onsens.

Basically Alkali water react and soften cuticle of your skin, emulsifies and melt skin secretion such as smegma and smoothen your skin. This is called ‘Bihada (beautiful skin)’ effect.

Also, this water is good for recovery from physical exhaustion, nerve pain, muscle pain and joint pain.

①MiMizuku-no-Yu (みみずくの湯)

We can see great view of hakuba mountains from this open-air bath, that’s why we recommend this Onsen.

Dip in this hot spring, beautify your skin and refresh your mind. Then after Onsen, we can eat in MiMizuku-chaya restaurant in the same place (open from 11am to 5pm). Onsen Udon noodle (390 yen) is famous in this restaurant.

②Happo-no-Yu (八方の湯)

We secondly recommend Happo-no-Yu.
This Onsen was called Daiichi Sato-no-Yu but renewal opened on December, 2014 by new name, Happo-no-Yu.

So still facility is new, but not so big Onsen and easy to access from prefectural main road. As a result it is crowded in evening time.

Obinata-no-Yu is closed in winter time.

「Norikura sou lodge(乗鞍荘)」and 「Hakuba Alps Hotel (白馬アルプスホテル)」 from Wakaguri Onsen area.
