    A sand bath facility located a 10-minute drive from JR Yamakawa Station. A natural sand bath site heated by the geothermal energy of the Fushime Onsen hot spring, the sand baths have been a favorite of locals since ancient times. Surrounded by abundant natural beauty and with Kaimondake Volcano towering in the distance, bathers enveloped in hot sand can relax to the sound of ocean waves. The sweat generated from the weight of the sand and hot spring heat rids the body of toxins. After a sand bath, a bath in the waters of Fushime Onsen feels spectacular. Money saving tickets which include access to the adjoining Tamatebako Onsen outdoor hot spring bath facility, known for its spectacular views, are also available.

    This is a more out of the way, quieter sand bathing onsen. A very well organised operation and the sand bath is a great experience. No English spoken but there are a few posters with some English...

Over 100 active volcanoes across Kagoshima make it one of the Japan's most exciting prefectures. The prefectural capital, Kagoshima city, looks out to one of the prefecture’s most spectacular volcanoes, Sakurajima, an island of its own that can be visited and seen close up or admired from afar, with the promise of breathtaking sunsets complete with frequent puffs of smoke and ash. Down the Satsuma Peninsula, the most southerly part of mainland Japan, waterfalls, sand onsen, and fascinating history await, while Kagoshima's abundance of satsuma imo (sweet potato) provide a wholesome snack as well as one of Japan's favourite drinksーshochu.
