We travelled on the JR bus to Sukaya to try out a Japanese onsen. There were no English instructions and it cost 1000yen for the mixed baths. There were few people around and my husband and I stumbled through, not quite sure of the customs....More

We spent three nights at this ryokan (traditional Japanese inn), ferrying ourselves between the dining areas and the onsen (hot spring) when we weren't skiing. Our stay really couldn't have been better. This is a very old inn, so it lacks some of the refinements...More

Sukayu is a very traditional Japanese onsen known for being able to hold 1000 people. The water here is sulphuric so it's white (and smells a bit!) - it's very good for your skin though. I found the water here a lot hotter than at...More

Sukayu is a very traditional style onsen. The onsen water is soft and soothing. Inside the bath area is pretty dark with only a few light fixtures providing enough ambience. Very cozy and soothing. Don't be surprised when you see people taking a nap on...More
