This classic hot spring town lined with traditional wooden architecture is full of photogenic nostalgia. Beautiful buildings surrounded by an unspoiled rural setting ensure that Ginzan Onsen is pleasant all year round. Many Japanese visitors come to Ginzan Onsen in search of its Taisho period ambience (1912-1926). The gaslights and absence of motor vehicles help maintain the atmosphere. The town of Ginzan Onsen is very compact, taking only around 5 minutes to walk from end to end. Why don’t you wear a yukata and take a walk along the Ginzan River?
