Japanese Onsen (hot spring) is famous worldwide.  In Japan there are over 3,000 Onsen areas and over 22,000 places where you can enjoy Onsen, including the accommodations and the public baths.
Onsen is an essential article for Japanese.  In choosing which place to visit and which accommodation to reserve, it’s important for Japanese to know whether there are hot springs or not in that area.     tsuboyu

Meanwhile, people in the world are gradually getting interested in the characteristics of  Onsen such as its  
various chemical properties, its natural surroundings, and its culture that has been developed for a long time although they used to connect Japan with Kyoto, Tokyo, and Mt. Fuji.  When you find yourself enjoying Onsen, you also realize another aspect of Japan.
Nippon Onsen Research Institute is a “private” enterprise that not only examines and researches Onsen and tourism but also gives consultations about Onsen.  We maintain the principle of Onsen in order to remain neutral and make profit and sociality go together without being affected by any external influence and restriction.
