Yudanaka Shibu Onsen-kyo
Yudanaka Station, the last stop on the Nagano Railway, is the entrance to Yudanaka Shibu Onsen-kyo. It’s about one hour by local train from Nagano Station. If you have time, you can walk to three hot spring resorts along the river; Yudanaka, Andai, and Shibu Onsen-kyo. Hotels, restaurants, and souvenir shops are dotted here and there in this typical Japanese hot spring resort. Tourists in yukata, light cotton kimono, stroll through the resort. In Shibu Onsen-kyo, the largest hot spring resort of the three, you can casually enjoy the footbath, or Sotoyu-meguri, the bathhouse tour. Buy a special towel and take it with you to the various bathhouses. If you collect all the stamps prepared at each bath, you will have a chance to receive a special gift.
