Shika no Yu

Hot Spring / Hot Spring Bath
This hot spring facility is located in Yumoto, Nasu Town. It is said to have opened approximately 1,300 years ago. It is considered the oldest hot spring in Tochigi Prefecture, and many of the surrounding hot-spring hotels use it as their spring water source. The baths are divided into six temperature levels ranging from 41–48 degrees Celsius (there is no 48-degree women’s bath). It is said that by following the bathing protocol, such as pouring water over yourself before entering the bath, you can increase the hot spring’s effects.
