Tokko-no-yu hot spring

Hot Spring / Hot Spring Bath
Tokko-no-yu is the birthplace of the Shuzen-ji hot spring, and it gushes forth through the clear stream of Katsura River which flows through the center of the Shuzen-ji hot spring town. When Kobo Daishi visited Shuzenji Temple in 807, he was impressed by the filial piety of a boy who was washing the back of his sick father in the Katsura River, thinking that “the water in the river must surely be cold”, legend has it that he struck a river rock with a Buddhist ritual implement and hot water sprang forth. However, currently it is prohibited to bathe in this hot spring.
