Introduction of Hot Springs (Onsen)

This hot spring is famous for its association with Ota Dokan.
About 20 hotels and ryokans stand amid many hot spring towers and billowing steam from the hot water.

Atagawa Onsen was opened by Ota Dokan known as a builder of Edo Castle. While the Castle was being built, lots of rocks around eastern Izu were used. Some of them were too huge to carry to Edo and left behind. These boulders are called Bonaki Rocks, and they are still there.

You can have fun, picking strawberries or tangerines. In summer, marine activities are available.

Effects and characteristics of Hot Springs

In Atagawa Onsen, 100°C (212°F) water gushes out of the spring. The name Atagawa means Hot River. Since the water is so hot that the steam comes out of the hot spring towers.
