InformationInformation

Akiu Onsen is an old hot spring town located along the upper reaches of the Natori-gawa River. The surrounding area of this town is blessed with magnificent natural scenic beauty, such as Akiu-otaki waterfall and Rairai-kyo Gorge.
The history of the hot spring area dates back to about 1,500 years ago. It is said that in the 6th century, when Emperor Kinmei was affected by skin disease, he was bathed in water brought from Akiu and completely cured. Date Masamune, the first lord of the Sendai clan, also loved the hot spring and often visited Akiu during the Edo Period (1603 - 1868). These stories make Akiu Onsen widely popular among people as a therapeutic bath for a long time.
