Introduction of Hot Springs (Onsen)

This secret spring faces Sagami Bay where the scent of tangerines is so refreshing. Throughout the year, the weather stays mild here. The hot water has been touted to be effective for just about any illness since ancient times.

Once you walk out to downtown, hotels and ryokans stand along Chitose River in nostalgic ambiance.

Yugawara produces tangerines, taking advantage of the warm, mild weather. Yugawara Mikan and tens of other varieties are grown all year. This is the only place where you can experience the healing hot water in the scent of tangerines.
