Take Onsen

Hot Spring / Hot Spring Bath
A hot spring district sprawling at the foot of 1,700 meter tall Mt. Adatara in Bandai-Asahi National Park. The area's acidic springs, a type found almost nowhere else in the country, are said to have been discovered by the shogun Sakanoue no Tamuramaro during his eastern expedition. The tasteless, odorless waters of the area's springs have a pH of 2.48 and are said to ease nerve pain, help heal motor paralysis, aid recovery from fatigue, and promote health. Long ago, during a time when there were no antibiotics, this ancient hot spring district provided an invaluable method of treatment for many diseases. In a Japan Hot Spring Association survey, this hot spring destination was selected as having the best natural beauty in the country and was also awarded the Fourth Superior Sight Seeing Area Cultivation Award by the Japan Travel and Tourism Association. The area also conducts fun health programs which combine hot spring bathing, cuisine, and exercise.
