Owani Onsen Hot-Spring Village

大鰐温泉郷

A hot-spring village with a nostalgic atmosphere reminiscent of Japan’s bubble era

With a history of over 800 years, Owani Onsen has long been popular as a hot-spring retreat in the Tsugaru region. Its colorless, transparent water is gentle on the skin and leaves it feeling silky smooth. The water is also said to have warming properties and prevent chills. The local specialty is Owani Onsen bean sprouts, a traditional vegetable of the Tsugaru region cultivated since about 400 years ago using only heat and water from the hot springs. These bean sprouts are popular for the addictiveness of their unique aroma, crunchy texture, delicious flavor, and high quality. Be sure to try ramen or soba noodles topped with Owani Onsen bean sprouts!


The Owani Onsen Azalea Festival is held every year around mid- to late May. Approximately 15,000 azalea bushes blossom, drawing crowds of visitors. The Owani Onsen Neputa Festival is held in early August, and Owani Onsen Ski Resort offering various courses for beginners to experienced skiers opens in late December.
