Sukawa Onsen (須川温泉)

Hot Spring / Hot Spring Bath

This highly acidic hot spring, which wells up from the ground on a 1,126 meter high mountain, generates 6,000 liters of piping hot water (equivalent to 30 oil drums) every minute, one of the most abundant single hot springs in the country. The hot spring is widely known for its curative properties, and specific instructions for those seeking to be healed by its waters exist-it is said that one must stay here and bathe in the spring for at least one weak and ideally two to four weeks if one wishes to be cured of one's illness. For over 300 years, since the Edo period, the spring has been beloved for its healing abilities. The hot spring is situated halfway up Mt. Kurikoma, which straddles Iwate, Miyagi, and Akita, and the abundant natural beauty of the area aids in soothing away the stress of visitors.

          A northern Tohoku prefecture promising peace and quiet, Iwate is sparsely populated, replacing people with snow-capped mountains, history-rich sites, and fields of crops that are to thank for the region's delicious local cuisine. Meander along the three-city Golden Route, where you'll visit the grand Buddhist temples of Hiraizumi and the Tono folk villages before tasting the three famed noodle dishes of Morioka.
