Hidden away within Shiobara is the Motoyu Onsen – the birthplace of the Shiobara onsen area.
When winter comes, ‘kamakura’ (snow huts) of varying sizes are set up along the Akagawa riverside (the river itself flows directly through Motoyu Onsen). The snow huts are illuminated from within, casting a beautiful, fairy-tale like glow upon the surrounding snow of this little-known hot spring.
In addition to the traditional snow huts, snowmen and Japanese lanterns also add to the surrounding beauty.
After warming yourself in one of Motoyu Onsen’s various spas (varying in colour from green, to black, to muddy-opaque), why not finish your evening on a perfect note by coming and seeing these beautiful winter lights for yourself?
