There are many big hotel complexes surrounding Minakami Onsen since it is centrally located and has many sources of hot spring water.

It is preferable to stay overnight if you want to enjoy the onsens in the regions as many of them are in "ryokans" (Japanese traditional inns). However, some ryokans offer entry to non-staying guests as well, and some public bath houses are open to everybody. The price varies between 500 to 1500 yen.
