A hot spring district located on the sea, a rarity in Japan, which according to records was discovered in the Daido era (806-810). Many hot spring hotels stand side by side along Nanao Bay, and in these facilities visitors can take a relaxing bath in hot spring waters while taking in the view of the vast ocean beyond. The area's chloride springs are rich in minerals and are said to aid recovery from fatigue and promote health as well as easing muscle soreness, skin diseases, and sensitivity to cold. The area is renowned for the beauty of its sunsets and is a highly popular driving destination. The Wakura Onsen Summer Fireworks display is also held each summer, and during this event the area bustles with many visitors come to enjoy the show.
