This hot spring village, said to be the home of a hot spring god, encompasses seven source springs which generate 3,000 liters of piping hot water every minute, one of the greatest volumes in the country. The waters of these mildly alkaline simple springs contain a high concentration of negative ions; they warm the body all the way to the core and are said to treat a variety of ailments, including nerve pain, muscle soreness, joint pain, and chronic digestive diseases. There are many ryokan inns and minshuku bed and breakfasts in the area to suit an array of budgets and tastes. The village is situated along the clear stream of Okawa valley , and visitors can enjoy simple and ancient scenery here dotted with eye-catching rock formations. Some of the area's many other highlights include the To-no-Hetsuri cliff formation, a National Natural Monument; Ouchi-juku, a village which still retains much of its old post station townscape during the Edo period; and Nakayama Fuketsu Park, where visitors can see colonies of cold climate and alpine plants.
