    During the Edo period, this hot spring district was located in the Basin between the mountainside hills of Ashino-juku, a post station town situated along the Ohshu Highway, and at that time it operated much like a modern-day health spa. The district has two private source springs, both simple alkaline hot springs, and their waters are said to treat a variety of ailments, including muscle soreness and nerve pain in addition to aiding recovery from fatigue. The area's two medicinal herb baths are particularly renowned. The Nagi no Yu is for diseases which are caught from some other source outside the body, while the Nabi no Yu is for inherent diseases; the waters of the Nagi no Yu are particularly harsh, and bathers will begin experience pain across their skin after a five minute dip in the tub. Bathers are recommended to take two to three five minute dips with small breaks in between. The district's medicinal mist sauna is also popular, and its essential oils, when absorbed by the mucous membranes of the nose, act particularly effectively on the throat to suppress coughing.
