Gassan Shizu Onsen

A hot spring full of nature that springs in the Mt. Gassan!

The Shizu district of Nishikawa Town, located at the foot of Mt. Gassan, has prospered as a post town for Dewasanzan worshipers since ancient times.

It is passing through the "Rokujurikoshi Kaido" that connecting the Murayama and Shonai regions.

Nowadays, you can enjoy the spectacular scenery of Mt. Gassan and Mt. Yudono while soaking in the "Mt. Gassan Shizu Onsen" that springs up in Heisei era. The quality of the spring is high in salt, and it is said to be a hot spring for beautiful skin that warms the body from the core.

Every year from late February to early March, taking advantage of the fact that it is one of the most heavy snowfall areas in Japan, the event "Snow Hatago no Hikari" wouold be held. It uses a large amount of snow to recreate the old townscape of Shizu, which was visited by Miyama pilgrims, is displayed.

The three-dimensional reproduction of the Edo period hatago, the snow-covered basket comes to life from the moment the candle is lit. The candle flame lit inside is nostalgic and is wrapped in a fantastic space that makes you feel as if you have traveled back in time.
