Hot Spring / Hot Spring Bath

This natural hot spring, located in Tosa City, Kochi Prefecture, is owned and operated by the Sanyo-so inn. The dark brown waters of the sodium calcium chloride spring, also known as the Ogon no Yu (Golden Hot Spring), are said to treat such ailments as nerve pain, muscle soreness, fatigue, women's diseases, sensitivity to cold, skin diseases, and hemorrhoids. The inn is located in a vast, open area with a panoramic view of the ocean off Tosa; a popular base for whale watching and local pilgrimages, the quality waters of the inn's baths, containing an abundance of natural, healing substances, soothe the bodies of weary travelers. The inn's hot spring bathing facilities are open to non-guests, as well, and there is also a footbath right next to the entrance free for anyone to use. The footbath also has a view of the sea, so those journeying through the area should be sure to stop by.

          Kochi Main Areas


          The largest of Shikoku's prefectures, Kochi is endowed with some of the island's most exceptional sand beaches lining the Pacific Ocean, which narrows into the Shimanto-gawa, a huge river that stretches 196 kilometers into the prefecture, passing verdant mountains and hosting countless riverside activities. Whether you're a pilgrim or not, Kochi's 16 Buddhist temples that make up one leg of the Shikoku Pilgrimage are worth a visit, particularly Chikurin-ji for its five-tier pagoda.
