Winter -Hot Springs and Night Views-

 

Steam rising from a hot spring is an inviting sight in the hard winter of the Kofu Basin. Winter is the time to enjoy hot springs and the panoramic view of Kofu Basin at Fuefuki, which is located up on the hill.

 

Two hot spring areas


There are two hot spring areas in the city: Isawa Onsen, which was accidentally found in a vineyard and started its life as an outdoor bathing area, and Kasugai Onsen, situated in the peach production area.

 

Isawa Onsen hot spring area


From a friendly, small B&B to a large establishment with a hot water swimming pool, there are many types of accommodation. Good access from central Tokyo, only 90 minutes.

Kasugai Onsen hot spring area


Relaxed atmosphere with just a few establishments scattered among the orchards. The village feels like Shangri-La, with soft pink peach blossoms engulfing the whole area in spring.
