Kawamata Onsen

Hot Spring / Hot Spring Bath
This hot spring district, located in Nikko National Park, is one of the many which make up the Okukinugawa Onsenkyo hot spring village. The district is said to have been settled by defeated Heike clan soldiers and, according to legend, its hot spring waters were discovered by one of them, a man named Taira no Fujifusa. The four hot spring lodging facilities in the district stand along the ravine river or Kawamata Lake, and the area sees particularly many visitors during the fresh verdure of May, the fall foliage season, and when the New Soba Festival is held in November. The waters of the area's chloride springs are said to be effective for general indication and treat cuts, peripheral circulatory failure, sensitivity to cold, depression, and abnormally dry skin. An observatory right in front of the district as well as the Funsenkyo Bridge offer spectacular views of a geyser which shoots jets of water 15 meters into the air. There are both day trip bathhouses and lodging facilities in the district, making it easy to stop by while traveling through the area.
