Ureshino Onsen

Ureshino Onsen has been prospering since the Edo period (1603-1867) as a post station along Nagasaki-kaido Avenue. "Hizen-koku Fudoki," a local topographical journal which was published 1,300 years ago, claimed that the water of Ureshino Onsen had a healing power effective against all kinds of diseases. Ureshino Onsen, along with Takeo Onsen, is one of the most famous hot spring resorts in Saga Prefecture. On both sides of the Ureshino River, there are about 50 hotels and inns where visitors can enjoy onsen bathing, and water from these facilities also gushes out in the center of the town. Many Japanese-style hotels in Ureshino Onsen have good open-air baths.

The hot spring water here contains large quantities of sodium bicarbonate, which is effective for making your skin smooth and beautiful. Urashino Onsen hot spring has been selected as one of the three best hot springs for "beautiful skin" in Japan, and is particularly popular among female tourists.

The most highly recommended food in Ureshino Onsen is "hot spring yudofu" (a tofu hot pot). Tofu is gently simmered in hot spring water as the heated soup gradually turns soy milk white and the tofu melts, becoming soft and delicious. Enjoying a hot spring bath and hot spring yudofu will help your tired body to relax.

Tea cultivation has long been a staple industry in Ureshino, and the town is famous for being one of the best tea production areas in Japan. The area is located in a basin surrounded by misty mountains and is blessed with clear water and air, which makes it suitable for growing tea. Ureshino Onsen is known as "a hot spring resort with excellent tea."
