There's more to hot spring towns than just bathing


Whittle a kokeshi then wear a yukata as you walk around the hot spring town at night with a paper lantern

Immerse yourself in the hot spring town experience at Tsuchiyu Onsen in Fukushima. Don a yukata, slip on some geta sandals, and take up a paper lantern in hand as you walk around the town, breathing in the atmosphere. Kokeshi are traditional wooden dolls often seen at Tohoku hot springs, and your experience of whittling one from wood and painting a design on it will teach you the true meaning of warmth. The staff at hot spring hotel YUMORI is trained to welcome visitors from all over the world and to help them enjoy the hot spring town to the fullest.
