Introduction of Hot Springs (Onsen)

Rendaiji Onsen is a hot spring located in a peaceful place among mountains in the southern part of Izu Peninsula, in Shimoda City, Shizuoka Prefecture. In this spa village commanding a view of Osawa River, which is a tributary of Inouzawa River, there still remain streets with Japanese-style two-story houses, where you can feel a nostalgic atmosphere. This hot spring is famous as a place where Shoin Yoshida cured his skin disease in the closing days of the Tokugawa Shogunate. It is also known as a place where Okichi, who was the lover of Harris, the first United States Consul General to Japan, committed suicide by drowning. Thus, this spa area has a deep connection to the tempestuous last stage of the Tokugawa Shogunate.
