Boasting 1,200 years of history, this hot spring is known for some of the oldest waters in the San’in area. To maximize the effect of the hot spring, immerse yourself for several hours while dousing yourself with the ladle and singing the ‘counting song’ (a unique tradition passed down from the Edo period). Running alongside the Gamou River, the rows of sturdy wooden houses in the ryokan district bring back a sense of the halcyon days.
Type 49.8-degree sulfate waters; provides relief for rheumatism, nerve pain, arteriosclerosis, and many other complaints.
