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.
