jump to:   access  -  hotels  -  ratings  -  links

The pleasant hot spring resort of Shuzenji on the Izu Peninsula is named after the local temple. Shuzenji Temple was founded about 1200 years ago by Kobo Daishi (Kukai), one of Japan's most important religious personalities.

Kobo Daishi is also said to have created Tokko-no-yu, Shuzenji's oldest hot spring. The Tokko-no-yu bath is located in the river bed in the center of the hot spring resort town. It is now forbidden to take a bath in the Tokko-no-yu, hence, it is just used as a foot bath (ashiyu).

Hot spring baths for actual bathing are found in a few public bath houses and a range of onsen ryokan, some of which open their baths to non-staying guests. The nice resort town center also comes with a small bamboo forest.

How to get there
On April 1, 2014, the consumption tax increased from 5% to 8%, causing widespread changes to transportation fares. This page has not been updated yet, and some of the fees and fares in this section may not be up-to-date.

Shuzenji is connected by the Izu Hakone Railway Line with JR Mishima Station on the JR Tokaido Shinkansen and JR Tokaido Main Line. The one way trip from Mishima to Shuzenji by local train takes about half an hour and costs 500 yen.

The hot spring area can be reached in a 7 minute bus ride from Shuzenji Station. The one way journey costs 210 yen. There are frequent bus departures.
