Nestled in between Mount Audatara and Azuma-Kofuji is the small hot spring town of Tsuchiyu Onsen. Although less famous than its neighbouring onsen towns, Tsuchiyu is equally fascinating and rich in history. During the late Edo period (1603 - 1868), master artisans in Tsuchiyu developed a unique type of wooden Kokeshi doll. Today, this kokeshi doll is the proud symbol of the town, along with the natural hot spring waters that flow down from picturesque snowy mountain peaks.
