Situated in Saga Prefecture, Ureshino is peaceful and small Hot Spring Town.
Ureshino Hot Spring is known as one of “Japan’s three greatest hot springs to make your skin beautiful” and its characteristic is slimy touch.
In Hot Spring Town, there are public foot spas and pubic baths to experience with ease this “Hot spring for beautiful skin”. Together with the hot spring, it is known for its locale famous for Japanese tea, so your skin will become suppler just by walking in this town.
Ureshino Course starts in “Yoshida Ceramics” area of Ceramics Town. As a ceramic town, the stores sell pottery goods at residential buildings standing in order at intervals, wall surface covered by connecting pieces of ceramics, Daijoji temple/Yoshiura Shrine continues where gods of ceramic have been worshiped.
As you leave the Ceramic Town, under the blue sky the path of vast green tea fields stretch out before you. Walking alongside the green waves created by the precisely kept green tea, you will be welcomed by “22nd Century Asian Forest” of tall redwood trees.
Grown as symbol of “international exchange” between Japan and Asian countries, this forest receives Jeju OLLE Brand to emphasize the extra deep meaning in forest by creating “Kyushu OLLE” path. The sunshine filtering through redwood tree leaves is shining like small star. Leaving Asian forest, you will walk along silently flowing Ureshino river on the way to the walks end point at Siebold footspa, Hot Springs Town.
After you finish the course, you can heal your tired body and mind in Siebold Hot Spring (public bath) which is the symbol of Ureshino and Hot Springs Town where there are unique Japanese inns.
