  • Nagayu Onsen
    Accommodations / Hot Spring
    Oita Taketa-shi Naoirimachi Nagayu 8043-1
    A hot spring district situated on a hill at the foot of Mt. Kuju in Oita Prefecture. The area's hot springs contain abundant quantities of carbon dioxide gas and in 2007 the district self-proclaimed itself as having the most highly carbonated springs in the country. Also purporting to have some of the most carbonated hot springs in the world, the area's waters are said to treat joint pain, muscle soreness, and chronic digestive diseases, in addition to aiding recovery from fatigue. The bubbles in the water cover the surface of the body, creating an insulating effect which further enhances the heat retaining properties of the water itself. In addition, these same waters also cause carbon dioxide levels in the blood to rise, resulting in a state of oxygen deficiency similar to that which occurs after intense exercise, and thus they are also said to increase one's metabolic rate and in turn promote weight loss. Some of Japan's most celebrated authors, such as Yasunari Kawabata and Akiko Yosano, loved this hot spring district, and monuments inscribed with their words dot the town.

Oita Areas

around-area-map

A trip to Oita is tantamount to a long soak in the Beppu baths. The mountainous, coastal prefecture of Oita is renowned for having more onsen than any other prefecture in Japan, most of which lie in the city of Beppu on the west coast of Kyushu, recognizable by its pungent sulphuric aroma and the clouds of steam that puff up across the hillside. Away from the Beppu hot springs await mountains, waterfalls, and temples, so don’t hesitate to explore Oita a little further.
