Iizaka Onsen

Iizaka Onsen (Fukushima pref.)

Located only 10km north from the center of Fukushima City, Iizaka Onsen boasts a long and rich history. This traditional hot spring town features a variety of Japanese-style inns, eateries, and nostalgic shops. Walking the narrow streets once taken by famous poet Matsuo Basho, one can’t help but feel a sense of liveliness.

Iizaka Onsen is also home to one of Japan’s oldest community bathhouse, Sabakoyu, which still carries its age-old look from eras past, and today serves as the proud symbol of the historic hot spring town.
