Located deep in the Northern Japan Alps, the Okuhida Hot Spring Villages boast the most open-air hot spring baths of any one area in all of Japan. There are five hot spring villages in total: Hirayu, Fukuji, Shinhirayu, Tochio, and Shinhotaka.

Among them, Shinhotaka Hot Spring is particularly popular because of its outdoor hot spring baths located right beside a running river. Bathing suits are permitted in some mixed gender baths, and some baths are closed during the winter months.

In winter, spectacular events are held in each hot spring village. Kamakura snow hut festivals, folk performances, and ice illuminations make for fantastical sights and experiences that will make your trip unforgettable!
