Introduction of Hot Springs (Onsen)

Tango Onsen is a hot spring located in Taiza, a port town of scenic beauty commanding a view of the Japan Sea, in Kyotango City, Kyoto Prefecture. The name “Taiza” is derived from Princess Hashihito, Shotokutaishi’s mother, who came to this place to avoid the disturbances in Asuka Period.
At the mouth of Takeno River flowing by this hot spring, there is Tateiwa, a rock surrounded by sand banks, whose circumference is about 1 kilometer. The legend says that Imperial Prince Maroko, Shotokutaishi’s brother, got rid of the ogres and sealed one of them in this rock, so this scenic spot is very popular now.
