  • Hawai Onsen
    Tottori Tohaku-gun Yurihama Cho Hawai Onsen
    A hot spring district situated along the west bank of Lake Togo in the center of Tottori Prefecture. The district got its start during the Edo period when local residents applied to make use of a source spring which flows under the lake. The waters of the area's chloride-sulfate springs are said to ease rheumatism, women's diseases, nerve pain, and joint pain. These springs are centrally managed by the Hawai Onsen-Togo Onsen Ryokan Association without the use of adding any additional waters whatsoever. Instead, the temperatures of the baths in the bathhouses here are adjusted by mixing waters of different temperatures from different source springs. According to legend, a carp taught the people about the existence of the spring at the bottom of Lake Togo. In turn, this area is also known as the Hot Spring of Love, a play on the word koi, which means carp but, when written with a different character, can also mean love, and many tourists come here in hopes of being granted an easy childbirth by the gods.
