Onsen Waters Flowing Directly From the Source

Totsukawa Onsen is an isolated hot spring paradise located in the heart of the Kii mountains. It is a small community spread thinly along the riverside squeezed next to the base of steep mountains. The main settlement overlooks a man-made lake formed by a dam downstream

This mountain community is famous for the quality and amount of pure hot spring water which is used without recirculation, or “kakenagashi.” Each accommodation features a hot spring bath and enjoying a soak in the soothing mineral waters is a must for any visit.
