Ginzan Onsen en Hiver

La ville thermale la plus romantique de Yamagata

Par Alena Eckelmann   

Un weekend en amoureux au cœur d'une station thermale des plus romantiques est le meilleur moyen d'apporter un peu de fraîcheur à un hiver maussade.

Ginzan Onsen, situé dans la préfecture de Yamagata, vous transporte un siècle en arrière, au beau milieu du Japon de l'ère Taishō. Arpentez les ruelles de cette jolie bourgade de part et d'autre de la rivière Ginzan, ou traversez ses nombreux ponts pour apprécier les plus beaux panoramas offerts par cette station traditionnelle, qui préserve son identité depuis près d'un siècle. Pour jouer le jeu et vous immerger complètement dans cet univers, vous pouvez même louer un vêtement traditionnel de l'ère Taishō (à l'hôtel Ginzan-sō).

Born in France, I was twenty years old when, passing by a local bookstore, a book about Japanese characters caught my attention. This was my first encounter with Japan, and one that would change my life in many ways. Earning a degree in Japanese Studies with a major in Japanese religions and folklore, I have studied for two years in Kyoto but it only took me a couple of weeks to fall in love with the city. I really feel privileged to have been able to meet so many wonderful people out there, that taught me a lot about Japanese culture and about myself. I love nature, visiting temples and shrines, reading and researching about their history, joining traditional festivals or riding my bike to discover hidden places throughout the city. I also enjoy taking pictures wherever I go and Japan is a never-ending source of inspiration for an amateur like me. With Osaka, Kobe, Nara and many other beautiful rural areas at a short train ride distance from Kyoto, Kansai is also a wonderful area for enjoying the richness of Japanese cuisine. Japan has many secrets for everyone to discover, and countless elusive moments of poetry that no guidebook can tell you about. I am delighted to be able to share the ones I had the chance to witness with you and everyone at Japantourist. I sincerely hope it will make you want to visit and discover this magnificent country.
