Travel Guide - Tsukahara Onsen Hot Spring

InformationInformation

Tsukahara Onsen Hot Spring gushes out from a steam-breathing active crater called "Tukahara-jigoku", or Tsukahara Hell, on the mountainside of Mt. Garan-dake in northern Yufu. It is said that this secluded hot spring has been flowing since the Heian period (794 - 1185). The hot spring water's strong acidic pH of 1.4 is reputed to be especially effective against skin diseases.
The hot spring facility here called "Kako-no-Izumi" has both indoor and and outdoor baths, as well as some small bathrooms for families.

Kakó no Izumi is the second strongest acidic hot spring in Japan! It's sour like a lemon! #onsen https://t.co/qj2pncu8F4
