A Soothing Bath in a Retreat in Tokushima

Introduction of Hot Springs (Onsen)

In Tokushima, there is a secluded region of Oboke and Iya, the national natural treasures. The torrent of Yoshino River shaped these gorges with huge cliffs and the swift current.

The resort has a hanging bridge made of vines. Watch the lighted bridge swing in the wind at night and the sky-full of stars.

Taste the local cuisine, Iya soba noodles and Hirara-Yaki, a stone-grilled hot pot deep in the green nature.
