The guided walking route may vary by season and weather.

The guided walking tour takes about 1 to 2 hours depending on the groups pace.

We will start our walk at the Akebono Onsen Ryokan Hotel and will walk through the countryside, rice farms, Carillon park, and other local sights. We will touch the rock of reflection and view the original spot where the Tsukioka hot spring waters bubbled up. At the end of the walk, we will soak our feet in the foot baths.

Drinks and a small snack will be provided for the walking tour with guide.
