Hottarakashi Onsen

Hottarakashi Onsen Japan 〒405-0036 Yamanashi-ken, Yamanashi-shi, Yatsubo 矢坪1669−18


The simple facilities are attractive, a popular spectacular outdoor bath

There are two natural hot springs, “Acchi no yu” and “Kocchi no yu” in Hottarakashi Onsen.

The differences between the two is the spring quality, width, and opening hours, but the biggest attraction is that both can enjoy magnificent views of 700m altitude while visitors take the outdoor bath.

In the spacious large panorama overlooking the Kofu basin, Mt. Fuji can be seen during good weather, and visitors can see the color of the beautiful sky changing every second and a night view full of stars at night. A sense of openness and a superb view that can only be tasted here attracts many people.

From the opening in 1999, “Kocchi no yu” is popular with a calm atmosphere. It is also featured to see Mt. Fuji in front of open-air bath.

“Aicchi no yu” was newly established in 2003, the size of the bath and visibility is twice the scale of “Kocchi no yu”. Since it can be used one hour before the sunrise, visitors can watch the mysterious morning sun from the early morning outdoor bath, and they can bathe until 22:00 on weekdays.

Either way, visitors can feel the slow flow of time with a soft hot spring that is friendly to the skin. Also, since the temperature is slightly different depending on the bathtub, find the best position that suits your tastes and relax.

Besides changing hot springs on a daily basis, fresh hot water is always poured, so it is clean and safe. There are also a dining room, a light snack section offering breakfast, and a free break room between “Kocchi no yu” and “Acchi no yu”. Visitors can cool down after the bath and fill their stomachs.

No need to mention, but photography is prohibited inside a hot spring. Cameras can not be brought in.  Please make good memories, not photos or videos.

At the moment, the group operates “a Hottarakashi campground” which is operated by the group in the back of the hot spring, and it is said that a new spa will be set up for swimming in the future. Expect greatness for ‘Hottarakashi Onsen’ evolving day by day!
