Day 6 – North Central Exploration

You will travel to Hoshi Onsen and stay at a family-owned ryokan that was built in the 1870’s and is managed by fifth generation family members. Considered one of the best in Japan, this onsen (hot spring) site is located in the mountains of Minakami and situated directly at the source, where water flows up through a filter and into the ryokan’s hot spring baths. The trains from Matsushima to Jomokogen will take about 3 hours and then it is a 40 minute to Sarugakyo Onsen and then a 15 minute taxi ride. This is a long day but the ryokan make it worth it.
