Tamatebako Onsen is home to two luxurious open-air hot springs that will boost your wellness and leave you feeling truly pampered. The onsen water contains sodium chloride, which is particularly beneficial for the symptoms of rheumatism, neuralgia and joint pain, and great for overall health.

The Japanese-style outdoor onsen offers stunning views of Mount Kaimon and the East China Sea. In fine weather, you can even see all the way to Yakushima Island, one of the prefecture’s UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

Soaking in the Western-style outdoor onsen, meanwhile, you can enjoy the sight of Mount Takeyama. This peak is known locally as Snoopy Mountain as it resembles the Peanuts character lying on his back. See if you can spot the resemblance!

No matter the onsen, you are sure to enjoy the experience of relaxing in the tub in the midst of beautiful natural surroundings. Tamatebako Onsen was ranked No. 1 Best Day Trip to a Spa or Hot Spring by Trip Advisor in 2017!

The hot springs are rotated so men and women can enjoy both. The Japanese-style onsen is open to women on odd-numbered dates (1st, 3rd, 5th etc.) and to men on even-numbered dates (2nd, 4th, 6th etc.). The Western-style bath is open to women on even-numbered dates and to men on odd-numbered dates.

*Both hot springs are managed by Healthy Land. This resort also includes Yamakawa Natural Sand Bath Sayuri, which is a five-minute walk from Tamatebako Onsen. Healthy Land sells a discounted ticket valid for both Sayuri and Tamatebako.
