About Iizaka-machi

Iizaka, a town of sloping streets
Iizaka, famous as a hot spring resort with history, has many sloping streets as its name suggests.
Each slope has its own name, and by exploring them, you will discover unexpected charms of this quaint and historic hot spring town.

Free Footbaths around Town

Iizaka Onsen is one of the most famous hot springs in Japan and boasts as many as nine public bathhouses managed by local people in town, which is quite rare even among Japanese hot spring resorts. In addition, four free footbaths are dotted around town, allowing tourists and locals to enjoy a footbath while strolling around.

Enban Gyoza Dumplilngs

One of the most famous local foods in Iizaka is "Enban Gyoza." Chewy dumplings stuffed with meat and vegetable filling are laid out like petals in a frying pan, deep-fried with a large amount of oil, and then served on a plate in disc-shape.
Six restaurants in Iizaka serve Enban Gyoza, and each store has its own unique taste and cooking method, so enjoy comparing different tastes!
Most of these restaurants open only at night. We recommend visiting them after 5:00 p.m.
