Minato Onsen

The Birth Place of Reverend Nichiren – Kominato Onsen

Introduction of Hot Springs (Onsen)

Kominato Onsen stands near the birth place of Reverend Nichiren. The ocean spreads before Amatsu-Kominato, and the holy temple is here where Nichiren was born. Right in front of his birth temple, Tainoura Bay is the home to numerous tai (red snappers). Though they are native fish, as an embodiment of Reverend Nichiren, people don’t catch or eat them. Still, you can satisfy yourself with delicious seafood caught in the neighboring sea. Tai Senbei, the rice cracker in the red snapper shape is famous here.

Effects and characteristics of Hot Springs

Amatsu-Kominato Onsen has a hydrogen carbonate chloride spring and is said to be effective for fatigue or stress. The hot spring welling up from the holy birthplace of Reverend Nichiren is rather mysterious. You can watch the marvelous sunset while soaking in the hot water.
