    Shima means 40,000, and according to legend the miraculous waters of this hot spring district, surrounded by natural beauty, can cure 40,000 illnesses. The development of this area into a hot spring destination is said to have begun when Sakanoue no Tamuramaro bathed here while setting out as shogun in command of a force sent to conquer the Emishi region in the north. In 1954, this health resort was one of the first in Japan to be designated a National Hot Spring Health Resorts, alongside Sukayu Onsen in Aomori and Nikko Yumoto Onsen in Tochigi. The area's 42 source springs generate an abundant 3,500 liters of piping hot water every minute. The springs are sodium, calcium chloride, and sulfate springs.

    Accommodations / Hot Spring
    Gunma Pref. Tonegunminakamimachi Tanigawa 514-12
    This bathing facility is located in Tanigawa Onsenkyo Hot Spring Village. The facility is unusual in Japan, because it uses water from three different sources. The hot springs are simple alkaline spring water in the Fudo no Yu bath, calcium sodium sulphate chloride spring water in the Kajika no Yu bath, and simple spring water in the Hotaru no Yu bath. The large, open outdoor bath was built along the river, and visitors can enter the bath from the decking at the back of the building. There are also shops and rest facilities available inside the building.

    It gets a bit crowded at peak times, but a lovely onsen in a great location. I would avoid it at 5 to 6pm though in the ski season as it gets pretty crowded.
