A hot spring district sprawling along the upper reaches of the Tone River, a river which boasts the largest basin area of any in Japan. One of this district's greatest charms is its magnificent scenery, which commands a view of Mt. Tanigawa, counted as one of Japan's 100 most famous mountains. In addition to fully fledged mountain climbing, the Mt. Tanigawa is a center for river rafting, rock climbing, and other outdoor sports, and attracts many tourists throughout the year. The area's clear sulfate springs and simple springs are characterized by a smooth, velvety feel and are said to aid recovery from fatigue and promote health in addition to helping alleviate nerve pain, rheumatism, and skin diseases.
