Yamanaka Onsen (山中温泉)
A hot spring district situated along the Kakusen-kei Valley considered one of the three most renowned in Japan. Boasting some 1,300 years of history since its discovery and considered one of the Three Great Hot Springs of Fuso (Japan), records show that this hot spring district was a favorite of the famous haiku poet Matsuo Basho as well as many other writers and artists. The area's sulfate springs contain an abundance of potassium, sodium, and other minerals, and are said to aid recovery from fatigue and promote health in addition to easing muscle soreness, frozen shoulders, sensitivity to cold, chronic digestive diseases, chronic skin diseases, and other conditions. Some facilities also offer hot spring waters that can be drunk, and these are said to help relieve constipation, gout, and obesity.
