Tamagawa Onsen (玉川温泉)

4.5

Hot Spring / Hot Spring Bath

A hot spring district known for having the most acidic waters in the country, the area's single source spring also generates the greatest amount of hot water of any single spring in Japan. A nature walking path is maintained in the area of the spring for visitors to stroll and take in the sight of the volcanic activity taking place here. The spring's highly acidic waters have a pH of 1.2. When drunk, they are said to put one's digestive organs in order, while breathing their steam is said to stimulate the cilia in the lungs and encourage the regeneration of mucous membranes. Bathing in them is believed to aid in recovery from fatigue, promote health, and have a variety of other benefits, and the area has been designated National Hot Spring Health Resorts due to the power and breadth of their curative properties.

昨年、秋田観光をした際に立ち寄りました。
目の前で高温の温泉や蒸気が噴き出している光景は圧巻です。
温泉はpHが低く、加水していない源泉(適温に調整)に入るとピリピリします。初めての利用だったので、長時間温泉に浸かったら肌に水ぶくれができてしまいました。長時間はご注意下さい。
Reviewed:2019/11/17 ジオパークのよう!
宿泊客以外は上の駐車場から歩かなければならない。駐車料金を取られる。塩酸が湧き出しているのは圧巻。湯の花畑もきれいである。噴気孔には硫黄が溜まっている。北投石の日本唯一の産地でもある。

          Famed for its sake and samurai, Akita prefecture offers quintessential Japanese culture in a non-touristy setting. Alongside the celebrated rice paddies and historical sites of the region lies dramatic natural scenery in the form of the rugged coastline of the Oga Peninsula and the Dakigaeri Gorge, best visited in autumn, when the leaves begin to change color.
