Situated deep inside Shimanto Town, Hotel Matsubakawa Onsen is an onsen hotel that is located in the mountains in Shimanto Town, Kochi Prefecture. It is surrounded by the beautiful forest, as well as the Hinoji River, which is a branch of the Shimanto River. The source of our onsen comes from two different springs with different water qualities, and our guests can enjoy spring water of different qualities at the same time. The water in the big public bath contains more alkaline components and feels thicker, and is effective against chronic skin disease, chronic female diseases, and cuts. The open air bath, on the other hand, contains more hydrogen carbonate ions, and is effective against fatigue and colds after the bath. Our dishes are made using the local specialties of Kochi Prefecture as well as other ingredients we can procure from the mountains, rivers, and the sea in Shimanto Town, and all the ingredients are carefully examined by our head chef.
