Hashiriyu

Discovered around 1,300 years ago, this cave emits warm steam at what is one of Japan’s three major ancient springs. It’s believed to have been the hot spring of Izusan Shrine until the Meiji era and takes its name, Hashiriyu (走り湯), from the fact that the hot water runs down to meet the sea. Aside from viewing this historic wonder, you can also visit the mysterious caves that lie around five meters below the earth’s surface and are illuminated beautifully by lights.
