Togura Kamiyamada Onsen
Straddling the Chikuma River and surrounded by mountains, Togura Kamiyamada Onsen has a relaxing natural setting to go along with the natural hot spring mineral baths high in sulfur content. The town has traditionally been a stop-off point for pilgrimages after visiting Zenkoji Temple. The onsen town is proud of its strong Geisha heritage that continues to prosper today. Forty-plus ryokans, ranging from the traditional to more Western-styled, a lively night entertainment district, footbaths and unique shops for strolling, and many outdoor activities make Togura Kamiyamada an enjoyable onsen town.
