A hot spring area which produces hot spring water containing some of the greatest quantities of radon in the world. Situated deep in the mountains, the area consists of numerous ryokan inns along the lush Mitoku River. The waters of the area’s radioactive hot springs have an average temperature of 52.8° C and are said to treat such ailments as nerve pain, rheumatism, gout, high blood pressure, hardening of the arteries, and diabetes. The district was also registered along with Mt. Mitoku as the Site for Purifying the Six Roots of Perception and Healing of the Six Senses, the very first Japan Heritage site. It is also famous for the kajika frogs which live in the pure waters of the Mitoku River, and from May to July many visitors come to listen to their beautiful song. The area’s public bathhouses, the Kawaraburo (a mixed gender outdoor bath) and inventive hot spring hotels and inns are popular.
