Onsen bathing is an ancient Japanese tradition. The minerals of this naturally heated water vary by region, but common for all of the areas is that it is considered to be healthy and good for your skin. It is surely an amazing way to unwind, and the smooth water feels good on the skin. Often, tourists from outside Japan find it intimidating to strip naked and bath with strangers in the public onsen baths, like it is customary to do in Japan. Therefore staying in a Ryokan with a private onsen bath is the perfect way to experience a real Japanese onsen bath, without worrying about other people. Below you find a list of some of the best Ryokans in Shikoku which have rooms with private onsen baths.

When you make your reservation, you should make sure that you reserve a room with a private hot spring bath – not all rooms are equipped with private onsen. Some rooms are equipped with regular outdoor baths.
