Kurama Onsen

This hot spring inn is located in the mountain village of Kurama, Kyoto’s “back yard.” You can enjoy the natural sulfur hot spring while filling your lungs with the clear air of the Kurama River. The fee for day visitors, which includes use of the open-air bath and the large bath, also includes yukata (cotton robe) rental. This is very much a secret spring, located one hour by car or train from Kyoto!
