Sitting at an elevation of roughly 1,160 meters, Tsubame Onsen is a shared, open air bath located in the deepest part of the Myoko Kogen Hot Spring Township area. The hot spring is divided into two areas: “Kawara no Yu” and “Ogon no Yu.” Surrounded by abundant trees and offering a view of Mount Myoko from the bathing zone, it is an extremely liberating place to relax. The natural hot spring waters are milky white and have a moisturizing effect on skin. Driving up the mountain road, the Onsen pops into view. Its only man-made facilities are a simple changing room. It’s a secret spot visited only by those in the know. Surrounding Tsubame Onsen are various attractions such as So Falls, a massive waterfall with a roughly 80-meter drop, walking courses going through ravines, and trekking courses leading up to Mount Myoko.
※Use of Tsubame Onsen in the winter and at night are strongly advised against.
