Togatta Onsen

A hot spring town lined with studios handcrafting traditional Kokeshi dolls

With over 400 years of history, Togatta Onsen has long been popular with people seeking therapeutic remedies. The very hot spring water is said to be beneficial for neuralgia, rheumatism and muscle aches.

The hot spring town offers two public baths, Kaminoyu and Kotobukinoyu along with many hot spring inns available for overnight stays. Kaminoyu is a popular hub for tourists with an information centre and outdoor foot bathing available – the perfect way to warm your insides!

Visitors enjoy wandering around this hot spring town filled with rustic charm and a warm atmosphere.

The town’s iconic Togatta Kokeshi dolls are traditional Japanese wooden crafts featuring red stripes and floral patterns. Cross the Kokeshi Bridge over the Matsu River and you will find a row of studios handcrafting Kokeshi dolls along the riverside.

Togatta Onsen is well located for a visit to the famous Okama Crater and the Zao Echo Line scenic driving route. The town is also popular with skiers during winter.
