Aoni Onsen in Kuroishi
If ur nearby in Aomori or Hirosaki, don't miss out Kuroishi in autumn season as they have splendid spots to visit around!
There are buses that help u to get around but lucky us we got a lovely guide !
First we went to lake Iwani, (Rainbow Lake) then Nakano mountain, owani bashi and lastly Aoni Onsen.
This place is famously known for not having electricity and using lamp oil.
The aroma of firewood is very strong and very relaxing to soak in it.
How to get to this Onsen with public transport?
From Kuroishi station, take a bus to Iwani lake then take another shuttle bus from there to the hotspring. More info of time can be obtained from their tourist information centre.
Here's the entrance of the hotspring.
And then after 30mins we went to the another hotspring of of their ryokan. They have indoor ones with lovely autumn leaves view and outdoor tub with the view if the river.
The aroma od wood here is much stronger than the one in their ryokan and it was extremely relaxing and nice to be alone.
Thanks for reading!!!
