Enjoy the Milky-White Waters of the Snow-Viewing Bath at Matsukawa Onsen in Hachimantai ♨
In the mountainous area of Hachimantai, Iwate Prefecture, there are several hot spring inns lined up in the secluded Matsukawa Onsen. The beautiful milky-white hot springs are simple sulfur springs and are referred to as "Atatamari no Yu" (warmth-inducing waters).
Each hot spring inn has its own unique open-air bath, and in winter, you can enjoy the breathtaking snow-viewing baths ♪ There are also ski resorts nearby with excellent snow quality and spots where you can see frozen waterfalls! Additionally, there is the Matsukawa Geothermal Museum, a PR facility for Japan's first geothermal power plant nearby, making it recommended for leisurely walks.
If you choose to use public transportation, another charm is that you can take a retro bonnet bus that only runs in winter to reach the hot spring area ♪
