– About Onsen Musume
Onsen Musume combines the two culture aspects that make Japan so popular, it’s traditional side and its modern side. Most people are aware of the city landscapes that resemble Tokyo, but most have no idea what beauty can be found in Japan’s country-side where tradition has kept onsen alive.
The project will work closely with those local communities to boost Japan’s tourism and bring onsen to the world.
Japan in the near future—
Onsen god Sukunahiko gathered the nine apprentice goddesses of onsen, Onsen Musume, in a girl’s school to make them an idol group that can revive the declining tourism of onsen destinations. They can’t allow onsen to close.
With the same hospitality as at onsens, become idols and bestow healing and smiles to everyone! And recover Japan’s onsens to their former glory!
The Onsen Musume must become a famous idol group and save Japan’s onsen crisis!
