This Onsen is super Hot! We were almost not able to jump in the water. It is super HOT and a lot of local people from the village coming to bath. Great after long day trekking.

Not well signposted in English - turn uphill at the traffic lights by the shell garage in Onoaida. 200Yen per person and separate for men and women. Very hot baths!
