Shin-onsen is a town in the northern area of Hyogo Prefecture that lies adjacent to Tottori Prefecture and is surrounded by mountains, hot springs, and the ocean. About 46.3% of Shin-onsen is designated as a nature park, which includes a 1000 meter tall mountain made up of the San’in Kaigan Geopark, Hynosen-Ushiroyama-Nagisan Quasi-National Park, and the Tajima Sangaku Prefectural Park.
Shin-onsen is home to several hot springs (onsen) such as Yumura Onsen, Shichikama Onsen, and Hamasaka Onsen. The number of onsens in Shin-onsen is so great that the word “onsen” is used in the name of the town.
