The Kinugawa Onsen originates from the Taki Hot Spring that was discovered on the west bank of the Kinugawa River in the Edo period. After that, another Hot Spring gushed forth on the east bank and was named as the Fujiwara Hot Spring. Since then, people have called combination of these two Hot Springs as the Kinugawa Hot Spring, and now the Hot Spring resort is known as “a place for treat in the Kanto region” and attracts many travelers. This Hot Spring resort currently has more than 80 hotels and ryokans including modernistic hotels with many guest rooms and open air bathes.
