Higashiyama Onsen

Higashiyama Onsen (R) is a hot spring resort in a valley just east of the downtown area of Aizu Wakamatsu. There are quite a few large hotels and some shops for visitors. Although the hot baths may be relaxing and the surrounding valley beautiful, the area seems a bit worn down and overdeveloped.

One particularly notable ryokan in the area is the Mukaitaki Ryokan, which, contrasting with some of the surrounding concrete hotels, is a traditional, wooden construction. One will surely notice the ryokan when passing by, its name written in gold on the side of the eye-catching building.

How to get there
In the morning and late afternoon, Higashiyama Onsen is served by the Aizu Loop Bus (35 minutes from Aizu-Wakamatsu Station). However, between 10:30 and 13:00, the bus only goes as far as the Aizu Bukeyashiki, from where the hot spring resort can be reached in a 10-15 minute walk.
