This is a great onsen choice when you in Ueda. It is nothing terrifically fancy, just a nice place to enjoy hot springs and relax. The staff are friendly, the meal tasty, especially if you are a visitor and want to experience traditional Japanese food.

Do not miss the wonderful kaiseki meal served in the room.

the feeling of being in the hot natural spring water tub in the middle of the cold and snow was amazing. the place is so quiet and relaxing. Went for a walk around the town- so dead and not much happening, nothing impressive. but the...More
We visited the Oyu Onsen in the town and saw two of the temples in this quaint little village. Definitely a country town and so your expectations should be adjusted if you're fresh in from Tokyo (which we were). Lovely overfrown streets lead to hidden...More
We came to Bessho-Onsen as a family, stayed there for a few days. We were able to enjoy the music festival when we arrived that weekend. Nice music, delicious food.
Lovely and kind people in Bessho-Onsen, we especially loved the little coffee shop we visited...More
"Onsen town" in Nagano prefecture. It is a clean and peaceful place and everybody is so friendly. When we walked around to visit some temples and shrines (not very big, but good atomosphere with 1000 years history), some of local people asked us whether we...More
Ryokans Hanaya and Kashiwaya Besso are a bit of a splurge, but will have you drooling with their classic traditional construction. Public baths O-Yu (historical architecture) and Ishi-Yu (were Sanada's ninja bathed) are classic.
The town has 3 traditional public onsen. All cost 150 yen and can be paid for by the vending machine near it's door. So if you don't speak Japanese, no problem. Men and women are separated. Local people use it as a place to scrub,...More

Bessho-onsen is an onsen town about 40 min by train from Ueda, with a number of various hotels of varied quality, and bathhouses. The municipal baths are very basic except for the one near the train station. The town has no transport but is easy to walk around, it's not so big (and of course you can order a taxi). A number of interesting (and beautful!) historic-cultural monuments and nice woods around make the stay in Bessho-onsen very pleasant - and educative if you are interested in Japanese culture.
For conditions in the town's hotels, ask Tripadvisor and Google :)
