Experience The Rare Opportunity To Bathe In Fragrant Chocolate
Some of the best things about the Japan are the hot springs or onsen that are scattered all over the country. After a long day of hiking or sightseeing, many local and foreign tourists choose to soak their tired and exhausted bodies in the hot and therapeutic waters for half an hour or so to ease the pains, aches, and soreness.
From north to south, east to west, there are several regions and towns in Japan that are known for their top notch onsen or hot springs. One of the most famous of them all is Hakone, which is a town in the Fuji-Hakone-Izu National Park known for its natural beauty and fantastic views of Japan’s highest peak, Mount Fuji.
If you are in Japan any time in February or during the first half of March of 2019, you should definitely go to Hakone, as a popular spa resort in the onsen town is offering something unique to visitors for only a limited time period.
