Hanamaki Onsen

This well-known hot spring resort is known for its therapeutic bath waters, mentioned in Japanese literature from writers such as Kenji Miyazawa and Kotaro Takamura, who have given this spa retreat a wonderful reputation. Hanamaki Onsen offers its best all year round, blooming with cherry blossoms in the spring, lush with a verdant forest in the summer, brilliant hues of red and orange during autumn, and immaculately white and snowy views in the winter. For a warm and memorable stay in Tohoku, ryokans of Hanamaki Onsen offer the freshest local ingredients.
