Hot Spring / Hot Spring Bath
A hot spring district situated 800 meters above sea level near the entrance to a trail leading up Mt. Omine, a mountain viewed as holy in the Shugendo religion. Since ancient times, this area's hot springs have soothed Shugendo ascetics and travelers. The area's mildly alkaline hypotonic simple springs are notable for being extremely gentle on the skin and being comfortable to climb into. Their waters are said to ease muscle soreness, joint pain, nerve pain, sensitivity to cold, chronic digestive diseases, and other ailments, and the bathhouses here bustle with customers, particularly mountain climbers. Also renowned for leaving one's skin smooth, moisturized, and soft, the area's baths are popular with women. This hot spring district is also close to Dorogawa Springs, considered one of Japan's 100 most beautiful water areas, and tofu, made with the vaunted waters from this place, is a local specialty.
