Soak up history, admire thebreathtaking views

Hanamaki is a hot spring paradise

Surrounded by old-world flavor and passion

There are 12 attractive Onsen (Hot Springs) along gorges in the Ou mountain range in Hanamaki. They vary in size from one of the largest and most comfortable hotels in Tohoku to an old small inn with a rustic atmosphere used historically as a health retreat. Each of them has their own distinctive mood. Some have unique baths, such as an outdoor bath by a river or a deep bath that people have to stand in. In addition, seasonal changes in the scenery around the hot spring area in Iwate Prefectural Nature Park are something you shouldn’t miss. We recommend you come and bathe in a hot spring with your family, friends or by yourself. The hot springs in Hanamaki always welcome you with open arms.
