Sakunami Onsen

Sakunami Onsen

A hidden hot spring for successive Sendai feudal lords

Sakunami Onsen was officially founded in 1796. Legend has it that the spring waters were made popular before this time by the prominent Buddhist priest Gyoki and the famous warrior Yoritomo Minamoto during his local rule.


Neighbouring attractions include the Nikka Whisky Sendai Distillery which offers a tour including the sampling of various whiskies, the pristine Okunikkawa River and the Homei Shijuhachi-taki Falls featuring an orchestral roar of falling water. A further walk takes you to Saihoji Temple and Risshakuji Temple, the latter being a famous temple in the mountains where the great poet Basho Matsuo composed one of the most popular haiku poems in Japan.
