With a history stretching back 800 years, Kurotani washi (traditional Japanese paper) is designated as an Intangible Cultural Asset of Kyoto Prefecture.
Nestled amid the natural splendor of Ayabe Kanbayashi, Ayabe Onsen Nio-no-Yu is a natural hot spring with one of the best water compositions in the prefecture, rich in hot spring minerals and marvelously effective.
At the Kyo Ayabe Hotel, on a hill nestled amid abundant nature overlooking the pure waters of the Yura River, is the new Daikazoku no Yu natural hot spring spa, with waters that give you beautiful skin.
This natural hot spring spa is located in front of Ayabe Station, so it’s easy to drop in after work or while on vacation.
There are indoor and outdoor baths, both of which are 100% natural hot springs.
