Hot springs

Soak up history, admire the glorious views. Hanamaki is a hot spring paradise

Surrounded by old-world flavor and passion

There are 10 attractive 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 warmly.

Hanamaki Onsen

In addition to being situated in an area surrounded by abundant natural scenery and having four hotels/ryokan, Hanamaki Onsen also has great cafes and one of the best rose gardens in Northern Japan. If you spend the night, you can enjoy the various baths available at three of the local hotels.
