Effects and characteristics of Hot Springs

There is a legend that in Heian Period, Emperor Murakami used to visit Fukuji Onsen. For this reason, this hot spring has a nickname “the Emperor’s hot spring”.
It has two different spring qualities: simple spring and hydrogen carbonate spring. A chill after a bath does not occur easily, and the water has effects on cold constitution and so on.
In this spa village, a morning market is held every day, and you can enjoy spa hopping at the hotels and inns in the village by buying a “Nokutomari hot spring pass”.
