    This quiet hot spring district, situated amid mountains and renowned since ancient times, is one of the many dotting the Hanamaki Onsenkyo hot spring village in the mountainous northwest of Hanamaki City, Iwate Prefecture. Famed for ages for its curative springs, according to legend, the area was discovered by soldiers under the command of the shogun Sakanoue no Tamuramaro some 1,200 years ago during the Heian period, who were led here, it is said, by the goddess Kannon. The waters of the area's simple hot spring and chloride springs are said to treat such ailments as women's diseases, skin diseases, diabetes, and constipation. There is a hot spring hotel as well as a traditional ryokan inn in the area, both of which are elegant and charming. The Hiraizumi World Heritage Site is located a 70 minute drive away.

    A 15-minute drive from the Yuda Interchange on the Akita Expressway. This day trip hot spring bathhouse was the first to offer sand baths in the Tohoku region. The sand baths consist of natural quartz sand gathered in town heated to around 45° C; bathers lie down in the sand while clothed and are buried up to the neck to enjoy a 15-minute bathing session. The sand presses down on the body with a comfortable weight and heats you to the very core. After washing off the sand, you can take a relaxing bath and clear your pores with cleansing sweat in the bathhouse large bathing area. The waters of the bathhouse' sodium calcium-sulfate chloride spring (hypotonic and mildly alkaline high temperature spring) are said to treat such ailments as stiff shoulders, nerve pain, sensitivity to cold, and lower back pain. Of course visitors can just enjoy the hot spring bath area without taking a sand bath if so desired.

    When you arrive you get a yukata (robe) to wear. No underwear underneath! Then you go to the sand room and lie down while some women shovel the sand onto you. Stay like that, sweating for about 15...

A northern Tohoku prefecture promising peace and quiet, Iwate is sparsely populated, replacing people with snow-capped mountains, history-rich sites, and fields of crops that are to thank for the region's delicious local cuisine. Meander along the three-city Golden Route, where you'll visit the grand Buddhist temples of Hiraizumi and the Tono folk villages before tasting the three famed noodle dishes of Morioka.
