Enjoy Comfortable Relaxation in a Traditional Hot Spring Resort Town
Awara Onsen is Fukui’s largest hot spring resort town, with many hot spring inns of all sizes. The hot spring baths at many of these inns are open to the public during the day—in the evenings, they are limited to overnight guests. Visitors can rent yukata robes at the Traditional Performing Arts Hall near Awara-Yunomachi Station, to dress up and walk around town. In the evening, the small restaurants of Yukemuri Yokocho open across the street from the station, for dinner, drinks, and friendly conversation.
Many of the town’s hot spring inns are within walking distance of the local train station, and free shuttle buses are available.
