Located in Obanazawa City, this is the best onsen hot spring town in Yamagata.
The town’s origins go back to when silver mining flourished and a hot spring was discovered bubbling in a river at that time. The fascinating nostalgic townscape can be described as “Taisho romanticism,” meaning it is reminiscent of the Taisho Era (1912-1926), a classy age.
