Accomodation/Onsen

  Hot springs (onsen) can be found all throughout Ishikawa Prefecture and have been loved by people for hundreds of years. The Kaga Onsen District features four famous hot spring resorts. Yamanaka Onsen, established about 1300 years ago, is a wide-spread resort situated next to beautiful ravines and gorges in the mountains. Yamashiro Onsen, also established about 1300 years ago, is Ishikawa Prefecture’s largest hot springs resort. Awazu Onsen, also established about 1300 years ago, is said to be Ishikawa Prefecture’s oldest hot spring resort and features a Japanese inn that has been in business for over 1000 years. On the way from Kaga to Kanazawa, you can find Tatsunokuchi Onsen, and as you enter Kanazawa, you can find Yuwaku Onsen and Fukatani Onsen, which the Maeda Clan lords were said to frequent. In the hills of Mt. Hakusan, you can visit the Hakusan Ichirino Onsen, nestled among the deep green of the trees, and in Noto, you can visit Wakura Onsen and Wajima Onsen, both of which look out over the sea. At all of these hot spring resorts, you will find traditional Japanese inns where attendants dressed in kimonos will wait on you and serve you in classic Japanese hospitality.
