    This hot spring, owned and operated by an inn of the same name, is said to have been discovered in 1674 and is located the furthest back in the Nyuto Onsenkyo hot spring village. The spring wells forth next to the inn and visitors can watch the waters burbling up from the ground. The inn consists of several thatched roof and cedar bark roof black lodging buildings and hot spring huts, giving visitors a glimpse into what a therapeutic hot spring facility looked like in ancient Japan. There are two source springs, a simple hydrogen sulfide spring and an acidic sulfur spring, and their waters are said to treat such ailments as high blood pressure, hardening of the arteries, and peripheral circulatory failure. Drinking these waters is also said to have health benefits, including helping alleviate diabetes, chronic addictions, rheumatism, and motor paralysis, while breathing their steam is purported to treat chronic bronchitis and sore throats. There are many places to experience the area's natural beauty, history, and culture nearby, including Sashimaki Marsh, known for its colonies of surprisingly lovely Asian skunk cabbage; and Kakunodate, called the Little Kyoto of Michinoku.
