Guide of Myoko
Introducing the Myoko area
The Myoko Plateau offers beautiful scenery throughout the year. Visitors can enjoy a variety of outdoor activities, seven hot spring resorts, and a great lineup of delicious sake from Niigata Prefecture, a region famous for its rice. The city of Myoko in particular produces excellent sake due to its delicious water sourced from under Mt. Myoko. When day turns to night, the sky is filled with beautiful shining stars. Through delicious food, fun activities, and hot spring baths, our aim is to provide a place where everyone who visits can leave feeling healthy and with a smile on their face.

Many hot springs and ski resorts can be found at the foot of the mountain, making this area famous as a winter resort. The mountain is also recognized as a forest therapy base and as part of the Myoko-Togakushi Renzan National Park.
A hot spring resort located halfway up Mt. Myoko. It is said that this hot spring has been used as a therapeutic bath since long ago. It is said that the name "Tsubame Hot Spring" comes from the fact that there are many “Tsubame” (rock swallows) that live in and around the hot spring. There are two types of hot springs in Tsubame Onsen: "Kawarano-yu" and "Ougon-no-yu", both of which are characterized by their cloudy, milky-white water.
