Miyazu Onsen

The hot spring in Miyazu City just as in good old days

Introduction of Hot Springs (Onsen)

"Miyazu Onsen Pinto Yu", as officially called, is located in Miyazu City of northern Kyoto. Facing Wakasa Bay, Miyazu is a charming city developed around the castle of Miyazu fudal clan. Even after the Meiji Reform, it prospered on commerce between Wakasa Bay and Kyoto. To this day, the traditional city scape and temples stand, as well as the wooden three-story inn registered as a national tangible cultural property. The City is also famous for Ama-no-Hashidate, one of the three best sceneries in Japan.

The hot spring is drawn to lodgings within Miyazu and partly to Ama-no-Hashidate's accommodation.
