Shima Onsen

Evelyn

Mar 10, 2017

Escape from the busy city life and dive into this rural onsen located in the northwest mountains of Gunma prefecture. With over 40 separate hot spring sources within its borders, the town relishes in its resources with dozens of ryokan, public bath houses, foot baths and hot spring water drinking fountains for visitors to enjoy. Despite its many attractions, Shima has managed to keep itself from becoming overdeveloped, preserving a small-town atmosphere. For those who love quietness and nostalgia, this is the perfect town to reside in.
