3 days Onsen (Hot springs) lodge based ski touring

A unique way of tasting our mountain culture.

Away from the resort bathing deep in Onsen, staying in local Japanese style ryokan in the middle mountain. The mountains are right behind the lodges.

 

 

A secret onsen of the lord:Takeda Shingen.

Takeda Shingen was a feudal lord (Daimyo) in 16th century with exceptional military prestige in the late stage of the Sengoku period.

He faced his lifelong rival Uesugi Kenshin at Kawanagajima 50km south east of Otari over 5 times. There are few Onsens with the old legend where Shingen stopped and spent his temporary respite with his samurai soldiers.
