Zao Onsen Dairotenburo

853-3 Zaōonsen Yamagata 蔵王温泉大露天風呂


100% natural hot spring sourced, a great outdoor bath near a mountain stream stimulating all your senses

An excellent pure hot spring quality paired with an excellent location and open atmosphere! The dynamic open-air bath can fit up to 200 people at a time!

From the natural-stone-made bath, you can listen to the flow of the river and the songs of wild birds. And you can enjoy the unique sulfur smell of the hot spring, the cool air unique to the plateau, and a special bathing experience.

Zao Onsen’s fountain quality is a strongly acidic sulfur spring. The sulfur spring has the ability to activate mucopolysaccharide proteins in the body, which are said to increase body-water content and rejuvenate the skin and blood vessels.

In addition, it also has the effect of sterilizing the epidermis and strengthening the skin. The ingredients of the water can wash off oils, so it is also called “soapless hot water”.

When using the locker, please don’t forget a 100yen coin!
