Japan is one of the most volcanically active places on Earth. As a result, the country is rich in rejuvenating natural hot springs and mineral resources, which have played an important role in the traditions and culture of its people for centuries. Today, these natural hot baths are the pinnacle of luxurious relaxation.
Niwa no Yu includes separate male and female onsen and outdoor jacuzzis surrounded by Japanese gardens. The water is rich in sodium chloride, a salt rumored to ease muscle pain and joint stiffness. If all the relaxation builds your appetite, there’s a restaurant on the premises. It’s a very adult-friendly environment, and children under the age of 13 are not allowed. Now, all you have to do is settle into your Shangri La.
