Ryujin Hot spring village龍神温泉郷

Hot Spring / Hot Spring Bath

A quiet hot spring district sprawling amidst mountains along the Hidaka River. Together with Kawanaka Onsen in Gunma Prefecture and Yunokawa Onsen in Shimane Prefecture, this district is considered one of Japan's three great skin beautifying hot spring villages. Discovered by the great monk Kobo Daishi, founder of Shingon Buddhism, this ancient and history-leaden hot spring destination was used by the lords of the Kii Province Tokugawa clan in the Edo period. The area's hydrogen carbonate springs (alkaline springs) are characterized by their soft, velvety feel and are renowned for giving bathers smooth, moisturized skin. These waters are also said to have powerful warmth retaining qualities and aid in recovery from fatigue, help alleviate sensitivity to cold and stiff shoulders, and prevent post-bath chills.

          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.
