Wakura Onsen (和倉温泉) / Japanese Hot Springs

Introduce Wakura Onsen (和倉温泉).
Wakura Onsen is a hot spring resort located beside Nanao Bay on the Noto Peninsula. The resort town is dominated by massive ryokan complexes along the water's edge. The most famous of them is the Kagaya, which consistently ranks among Japan's best ryokan for its excellent service and facilities.

The large ryokan complexes offer a wide variety of facilities to their guests, including hot spring baths, restaurants, karaoke rooms, bars, theaters and game centers. As a result, visitors rarely feel the need to venture outside, and Wakura's streets are not very lively. But the town does have a few minor sights that justify a walk. Across from the Kagaya ryokan, there is a public square (hiroba) with a hot spring water fountain and a small park around a shrine and a hot spring source with water pipes.

Also nearby is the Kado Isaburo Museum with exhibits of modern interpretations of lacquerware by local artist Kado Isaburo. Admission to the museum also includes entry to the Le Musee de H, a confectionery museum by a famous Japanese pastry chef. Consisting of only a single exhibition room, Le Musee de H exhibits a few sculptures artistically made of sweets. Adjacent is a patisserie.

The best way to enjoy the bathing experience at Wakura Onsen is to stay overnight at one of the ryokan. But the waters can also be enjoyed by daytrippers, as some ryokan allow non-staying guests to use their bathing facilities during the day for typically 500 to 1500 yen. Furthermore, there is a dedicated paid public bath house, the Soyu Public Bath in the town center. A few free foot baths (ashiyu) are also found around town.

How to get there is as follows;
From Kanazawa, there are limited express trains that run directly to Wakura Onsen Station (65 minutes, about 2200 yen, 6 per day) and direct buses (about 2 hours, 1360 yen, 2 per day). Wakura Onsen can also be reached from Kanazawa by local trains with one transfer at Nanao Station (100 minutes, 1280 yen, one good connection per hour).

From Wajima, there are a few direct buses (1 hour, 1200 yen, 3 per day) to Wakura. Wakura can also be reached from Wajima by taking a bus to Anamizu (30 minutes, 740 yen, 1 per hour) and then a train along the Noto Railway line to Wakura Onsen (35 minutes, 660 yen, 1 per hour). Not all buses have connecting train departures.

Central Wakura Onsen is located about two kilometers away from Wakura Onsen Station. It is possible to walk the distance in about 30 minutes, but some hotels offer free pick up and there are also local buses and taxis.
