Yamanaka Onsen

Only 30 minutes by bus from Kaga Onsen Station, Yamanaka Onsen lies in a peaceful valley on the banks of a river flowing down in cascades from the mountains nearby. In addition to the charming Kakusenkei promenade that offers exquisite scenic views at every season, Yamanaka Onsen has managed to preserve the typical atmosphere of remote hot spring towns as much as a long-lasting excellence in performing arts and fine crafts.
