Hashiriyu hot springs走り湯
Hashiriyu is a hot springs source located in Izu-yama, Atami City. One of only a handful of hot springs in Japan where the water gushes out of the rocks horizontally rather than vertically, the modern name “Hashiriyu” (“Running Spring”) derives from the appearance of the water, which appears to be rushing towards the sea. Hashiriyu has a long history, having been discovered around 1,300 years ago; prior to the Meiji Restoration, it was a sacred hot spring associated with the Izusan-jinja Shrine. It is ranked as one of Japan’s “Three Great Ancient Springs.” Currently, around 7,000 tons of water flows out of the springs every day.

Shizuoka Main Areas
With the giant Pacific Ocean to the south and the great Mount Fuji to the north, Shizuoka prefecture is blessed with some of the best views the country has to offer. The white sand beaches of the Izu Peninsula are a rare find on mainland Japan, neighbored by beautiful cliffs, tumbling hills, and natural hot springs. As Japan's largest producer of green tea, the age-old tradition of tea drinking is ubiquitous in Shizuoka, from the miles of tea fields to the old tea houses hosting traditional tea ceremonies.
