    This hot spring inn, a 20-minute drive from Gounoura Port, stands amidst restaurants and other inns facing Yunomoto Bay. Currently operated by the third-generation owner, the longstanding establishment has been in business for over a century. The inn serves regional cuisine made with fresh, local seafood, and, depending on the time of year, you can enjoy bigfin reef squid and sea urchin. The inn takes particular pride in its outdoor bath, which is filled with the red-tinged waters of a natural hot spring said to treat such ailments as nerve pain, gastrointestinal disorders, and women's diseases. There is also a statue of Kshitigarbha, guardian deity of children, in the inn, and according to legend, bathing in the inn's hot spring will bless those who so desire with the treasure that is a child.

Nagasaki Areas


This hidden corner of the country is rural Japan at its best, where underground activity is to thank for active volcanoes and bubbling natural hot springs along the Shimabara Peninsula as well as the crystal clear waters of the Goto Islands off the west coast. Less well known than Hiroshima's Peace Memorial Park, Nagasaki commemorates its own past at the Nagasaki Peace Park, which sits alongside the charming Meganebashi stone bridge and a mix of religious buildings with beautiful architecture, such as the Zen Buddhist Sofukuji Temple, the Confucian Shrine, and the Oura Christian Church.
