If you're looking for a great way to relax and destress after a long work week visiting hot springs is a great way to accomplish this. It can also offer some tremendous health benefits like loosening up any sore muscles you're dealing with.
Often times people like to keep hot springs a secret so they don't get overcrowded but my feeling is that as long as you leave it better than you found it there is no reason to keep these hot springs a secret. Also, big thanks to leisuregrouptravel.com for helping me put this list together.
Here is the list of 5 Hot Springs that you should be checking out whenever you have some free time:
