Oigami Onsen

Opened by a Serpent - Oigami Onsen

Introduction of Hot Springs (Onsen)

A serpent opened Oigami Onsen; on this land, the legend of a big snake is still talked about.

Once upon a time, the god of Mt. Nikko Nantai transformed into a centipede, and the god of Mt. Joshu Akagi changed into a serpent to start a fight in the dispute over territory.

The serpent, injured in the fight, treated the wound in this hot spring and drove back the centipede that was coming in a pursuit. The hot spring was named Oigami (old god) after that incident.

This hot spring has excellent access to scenic Nikko Area, Katashina, Oze, and many attractions such as the Niagara in the Orient, Hukiware-no-Taki.

Effects and characteristics of Hot Springs

Oigami Onsen has a simple spring, and its water is said to make the skin nice and smooth.

In every May, there is Oigami Taija Matsuri, a festival of 30m (98 ft)-long serpent hoisted up by many people. Once in 12 years - in the year of snake - an amazing 108m (354 ft)-long serpent is created to add to the festivity.
