Shirahama Onsen, Hot Spring and Beach Resort in Wakayama, West Japan
Shirahama Onsen has 1300 years of history.
It is famous not only as one of three oldest hot spring ("onsen"), resorts in Japan but also as one of the most beautiful beach resorts in West Japan.
It is a mystery that hot springs exist in Shirahama Onsen though there is no volcano around the area. In 2000, Shirahama Beach and Waikiki Beach (Honolulu, Hawaii, US) established a goodwill sister beach relationship.
