Nagato Yumoto Onsen長門湯本温泉

Hot Spring / Hot Spring Bath

This hot spring district is the oldest in Yamaguchi Prefecture and during the Edo period countless samurai lords came here seeking its healing waters. According to legend, the area's hot springs were discovered in 1427 after a priest meditating at the Tainei-ji Temple received a revelation from the god Sumiyoshi Daimyojin. In ancient times, the bathhouses making use of these miraculous waters were divided into two areas (reito and onto), reito for priests and samurai, and onto for commoners. The area's highly alkaline simple springs are colorless. Their waters are gentle on the skin and said to grant beauty to women in addition to treating nerve pain and muscle soreness and aiding recovery from fatigue. There is a garden-style footbath area with an arbor located in Otozuregawa Kasen Park, as well as a high temperature footbath along the park's walking path following the Otozure River.

          Yamaguchi Main Areas


          Heading west along Japan's largest island, Honshu, the very last prefecture you'll reach is Yamaguchi, separated from Kyushu by a small strip of water known as the Kanmon Straits, which the far-reaching harbor city Shimonoseki looks over. With water at every turn, the seafood of Yamaguchi is an indisputable highlight, and we're not talking just the usual fish dishes—the notorious fugu, or puffer fish, is a Japanese delicacy that was discovered in Yamaguchi prefecture, making it the best place to try it out.
