Snow (snow onsen) around Kansai to Hiroshima 2019/6/18 12:57
Hi,

We will travelling to Kansai in new year.

As budget constrain If possible we will not buy full JR pass so we need to choose between JR Kansai Hokuriku or JR Kansai Hiroshima area pass.

Can you advise whether we can find snow (and onsen with snow) around JR Kansai Hiroshima area?
I know we can see snow in Koyasan but please exclude it as it is not nice playing with snow in cemetery.

Thank you in advance

Dorogawa onsen in Nara Prefecture might be a possibility. I only went in August and liked the old village a lot. But it seems there is some snow park closeby. Access is by bus from a train station. About 1-1,5 h bus ride, as far as I remember.

Searching in internet youfll find more suggestions:

However if you travel at end of year/early January (not sure from your post what dates you are looking at) , snow might still be on the low side, so check a snow calendar from previous years to get an idea. Plus year end is a busy travel time so you should reserve ahead of time (now however is too early).

Enjoy the snow and soak!
