Hot Springs Recuperation

Hot springs recuperation is effective for post-training fatigue recovery and relaxation. The NTC Highland Training Performance Enhancing Facility has the following hot spring facilities available for use.

Nigorigo Hot Spring

Located at 1,800 m above sea level and open year round, this hot springs resort is known as the launch point for Hida-side ascents of the sacred Mt. Ontake. As a hot springs town, it is home to several of Japan’s highest hot springs.
Said to have first been developed in 1887 as a hot springs resort offering lodgings for mountain climbers, in 1955 automobile access was completed from Kuguno via Akigami Hot Spring to Nigorigo Hot Spring, making the area an overnight hot springs resort.
It has the air of a secret or hidden hot spring, surrounded as it is by lush virgin forest and rustic scenery.
