A Temple Onsen
According to legend, Nagato Yumoto Onsen is said to have been discovered over 600 years ago by a Buddhist priest who was guided by divine revelation. As if to prove this, the onsen’s central wellspring is indeed located within the grounds of Taineiji Temple.
“Bihada-no-Yu” Baths for Beautiful Skin
The onsen is composed of pure alkaline waters, and is clear and colorless. Because the alkaline level of the spring is quite high, the waters have a lotion-like texture that leaves the skin soft and smooth.
