What is a Ryokan? Ryokans are the best way to experience Japanese culture and enjoy the true comforts of Japanese hospitality and service.
Hot springs have a very long history in Japan, and they are an intimate part of Japanese culture. There are over 3,000 "onsen" ,or hot springs, in Japan. Many can be found at the ryokans available on Japanese Guest Houses.
Kaga Onsen consists of four hot spring towns south of Kanazawa, not far from Mount Hakusan, one of Japan's "three holiest mountains". Kaga was traditionally known for its production of Kutani ware ceramics and a type of silk fabric known as Kaga habutae. Hot springs were discovered over 1300 years ago by monks visiting Hakusan, and has been an important tourist city with a number of temples and hot-springs ever since.
