Welcome to Bessho Onsen

Historically, Bessho Onsen has plenty of claims to fame. It has long been referred to as 'Little Kamakura' for the fact that it served as an administrative centre during the Kamakura period (1192–1333). It was also mentioned in The Pillow Book by the Heian-era poetess Sei Shōnagon, and the restorative properties of its onsen waters are said to have healed the arrow wounds of warriors through the ages.
