坐落在河谷深林裡,被樹林圍繞的大型露天溫泉。此地不僅是阿部寬電影「羅馬浴場2」的場景之一,而且本身也是維持著傳統混浴的特色傳統溫泉。實際看到時依然忍不住驚呼連連,這也太大了吧! 露天風呂融合在自然界裡,這才是真正一生一次的驚驗絶景秘湯!每年入秋之後楓紅景色驚豔,而冬天的雪景更是美不勝收,只能說能有機會來此真是太幸福了!




在車站大樓之中誕生了一個名為「CoCoLo 湯澤雁木通商店街」的區域,販售越後湯澤的知名產品。「雁木通」重現了昭和初期懷舊氛圍的街道,在這條商店街上,不僅可購買伴手禮,還有南魚沼產的越光米,500日幣可以品嚐五小杯的新潟清酒。真是好吃好玩又好買!






山頂一帶是彌彥山上公園,內有小遊樂場和瞭望餐館等。從彌彥神社前殿走 8 分鐘到纜車的山麓站,從這裏乘纜車只要 5 分鐘就到山頂公園。在山頂上有邊360 度旋轉的邊升降的高達 100 米的全景塔。從塔上眺望,日本海,越後平原和佐渡島盡收眼底。




佐渡島位於中部地區北部,新潟市以西約 45 公里處,方圓 227 公里,面積約 857 平方公里,是日本最大的島嶼,由兩座平行的金北山脈和國見山脈,以及兩座山脈之間的國仲平原組成,屬佐渡彌彥國定公園。














新潟縣擁有溫泉數量在日本國內排名第三。其中月岡溫泉是在 1917 年由一家油公司進行鑽油作業時無意間發現,如今成為新潟最知名的泡湯勝地。月岡溫泉水質甚佳,每年吸引上千遊客造訪,其中豐富的礦物質據稱有養顏美容的效果。這項特點讓它贏得美人湯的讚譽,意思是「美麗之泉」。浸泡在含有豐富硫化氫的翠綠月岡溫泉中,能使肌膚容光煥發,膚質也更緊實滑嫩。
