You will reach this hidden treasure after two hours drive from Matsumoto along the beautiful scenic mountain drive. The bus service is available in winter season. Awanoyu Ryokan is famous for mixed bathing - outdoor milky bath with beautiful natural surroundings which brings colours in each season.
