タイトルを "Hot-spring Resorts of Japan"とか"Marvelous Open-Air Hot Springs of Japan" にしたほうが受けがよかったかな?

それはさておき、綺麗な写真をありがとう

Japan's onsen culture
Quote:
An onsen (温泉?) is a term for hot springs in the Japanese language, though the term is often used to describe the bathing facilities and inns around the hot springs. A volcanically active country, Japan has thousands of onsen scattered along its length and breadth. Onsen were traditionally used as public bathing places and today play a central role in directing Japanese domestic tourism.

Onsen come in many types and shapes, including outdoor (露天風呂 or 野天風呂, rotenburo or notenburo?) and indoor baths. Baths may be either public run by a municipality or private (内湯, uchiyu?) often run as part of a hotel, ryokan or Bed and Breakfast (民宿, minshuku?).

Onsen are a central feature of Japanese tourism often found out in the countryside but there a number of popular establishments still found within major cities. They are a major tourist attraction drawing Japanese couples, families or company groups who want to get away from the hectic life of the city to relax. Japanese often talk of the virtues of "naked communion" (裸の付き合い, hadaka no tsukiai?)[1] for breaking down barriers and getting to know people in the relaxed homey atmosphere of a ryokan with an attached onsen. Japanese television channels often feature special programs about local onsens.

The presence of an onsen is often indicated on signs and maps by the symbol ♨ or the kanji, 湯 (yu, meaning "hot water"). Sometimes the simpler hiragana character ゆ (yu) is used, to be understandable to younger children.

so how feasible would it be to get their from Tokyo when you have only a week in Japan? I'm in Taipei now and next year during the Lunar New Year I want to take a trip to Japan. Only catch is I will probably have only a week.

Hōshi (法師?) is a ryokan (Japanese traditional inn) in the Awazu Onsen area of Komatsu, in Ishikawa Prefecture, Japan.
Founded in 718, it is the world's oldest hotel still in operation according to the Guinness World Records[1] and
the world's oldest continuously operating company after the liquidation of Kongō Gumi in 2006.
The hotel has been operated by the same family for forty-six generations.[2]
