Hinagu Onsen日奈久温泉

Hot Spring / Hot Spring Bath

According to legend, this ancient hot spring area was cultivated after a young man, seeking to heal his father’s sword wound, received a revelation from the god Itsukushima Myojin. The area has been a popular destination for therapeutic hot spring bathing since the time of its cultivation in 1409 during the distant Nanboku-cho period until the present day. The soft, velvety waters of the area’s primarily alkaline simple springs are gentle on the skin and not prone to causing dizziness even after extended bathing sessions, making them popular with men and women of all ages. Hinagu is also famous for its production of chikuwa fish sausages and many people come here to pick up some to take home or give to friends and relatives.

          Kumamoto Main Areas


          Kumamoto lies in the center of Kyushu, a calm prefecture perfect for easy strolls around the historic center and lazy evenings in the natural hot springs at Kurokawa Onsen. For a slightly more strenuous activity, head to Mount Aso, whose surrounding hills offer hiking opportunities aplenty with views over the active volcano.
