Hot spring

One of the three oldest hot springs in Japan along with Dogo Onsen and Arima Onsen. In this hot spring resort, each hotel and Japanese inn has a unique source spring with slightly different qualities and health effects.

Currently, 14 facilities belong to the Shirahama Onsen Cooperative, and you can visit multiple hot springs of your choice with a Nanki Shirahama Onsen Yumeguri pass (1800 yen). From an outdoor spring with a grand ocean view to a VIP hotel’s huge bath, go around Shirahama Onsen and have fun.

There are 3 hot springs without lodging, each popular for its unique qualities. Sakinoyu with a close view of the Pacific Ocean, Muronoyu where you can soak in two kinds of hot water, Mabuyu and Miyuki source spring, and Shirarayu with a nostalgic atmosphere welcomes a day-use without lodging. There are 9-foot bath locations. These are for both males and females. Families and couples can relax together, Many of them open early in the morning. Try different hot springs and wash off your accumulated fatigue.

(Due to Covid-19, Nanki Shirahama Onsen Yumeguri passes are sold only to guests lodging at the inns that are members of the cooperative. Info as of July, 2021.)
