Iris Park Auto Campground “Megami no Yu”アイリスパークオートキャンプ場「女神の湯」

Hot Spring / Hot Spring Bath

This hot spring bathhouse is about 50 minutes from the Kamitonda Interchange on the Kisei Expressway via National Routes 42 and 311. It is a part of Iris Park Auto Campground located on the banks of the Hiki River surrounded by mountains and rich greenery. The facility is open to both overnight campers and day trippers. Although it only has indoor baths, it boasts simple bicarbonate spring, which is very slimy to the touch, said to be among the best-feeling in Japan. The simple alkaline spring, which is purported to have skin beautifying properties, leave bathers with a refreshing cooling sensation. It is also believed to help with conditions including nerve pain, muscle soreness, and sensitivity to cold.

          Wakayama Areas


          Wakayama prefecture unites pilgrims, food lovers, and culture buffs in a tranquil corner of Japan at the base of the Kii Peninsula. The setting for many a Kumano Kodo pilgrimage trail, Wakayama invites those in search of spirituality from one side of the prefecture to the other, from the 100-plus Buddhist temples of the sacred Mount Koya in the west to the inspiring temples of the Kumano Sanzan set among breathtaking nature in the east. Once the grueling hike is complete, make a beeline for Wakayama city to savor some of the country's most delicious ramen noodles.
