Awara Onsen, sometimes referred to as 'Kansai's parlour room', is the finest hot spring district in Fukui Prefecture.
Located in a rural area, the district contains 25 buildings, consisting mainly of ryokans and guesthouses.
Awara Onsen contains 74 different springs, and the qualities and effects of the spring water vary from ryokan to ryokan, so you have something to look forward to on return visits.
Many rooms come with their own open-air baths.
Enjoying a private garden bath is a truly special experience.
