A hot spring known as one of the three famous springs in the Oshu region, its waters well forth from a vein of hot water running under 1,709 meter high Mt. Tetsuzan. The waters of this simple spring contain the highest quantities of iron in Japan and are said to treat such ailments as nerve pain, rheumatism, gastrointestinal disorders, and sensitivity to cold. The spring is located close to the Yokomuki Onsen Ski Area and the Minowa Snow Resort and can serve as a base for enjoying area skiing and snowboarding. The area is also surrounded by virgin birch and beech forest which makes for great hiking. Other nearby destinations where visitors can experience the area's abundant natural beauty include Mt. Bandai and Lake Inawashiro. In addition, visitors can find many historic sites here, such as Kamegajo Park, the site of the castle which once served as a home for generations of the members of the local Inawashiro ruling clan; and the Former Yamauchi Residence, an ancient thatched roof home.
