When it comes to winter, it’s all about hot springs! Let’s warm up in a beautiful environment away from the city.

Surrounded by the beautiful nature away from the urban hustle, let's warm up in the hot springs.

Japan is renowned as a hot spring paradise, known for its effectiveness in relieving shoulder stiffness, promoting beautiful skin, and providing a distinctive atmosphere for both mental and physical relaxation. In this instance, we will introduce four scenic hot springs located in South Osaka and Wakayama, surrounded by nature.

Ryokan with Hot Springs Amidst the Greenery

Amami Onsen Nanten-en

How about enjoying an extraordinary hot spring bath surrounded by nature?

Located in the mountains, just about a 37-minute train ride from Namba in the heart of Osaka, there's a ryokan (traditional Japanese inn) where you can indulge in a unique hot spring experience amidst lush greenery.

Designed by the renowned architect Kingo Tatsuno, who contributed to numerous iconic Western-style buildings in modern Japan, this wooden structure features a simple yet elegant interior with touches of tea room-inspired designs throughout, reminiscent of traditional Japanese "sukiya" architecture.

The cuisine offered here is distinctive, using ingredients nurtured by the local climate and soil of Amami. The ryokan's original style shines through in reviving rare local delicacies, making for a truly exceptional dining experience.

The natural hot spring is rich in radon and offers powerful perspiration effects and metabolism boosting benefits upon bathing, promoting both health and beauty.

Due to its proximity to Osaka, access is convenient, making it an ideal destination for day trips. Whether you stay overnight or just visit for the day, you can luxuriate in the comfort of your room, savor the hot spring, and relish in a momentary escape filled with enriching experiences.
