Yunomine Onsen Hot Spring is said to be the oldest hot spring in Japan. The piping hot mineral waters of Yunomine, a quaint little collection of inns tucked into a small valley, is famous for its medical efficacy and use in purification rites. There are many legends about pilgrims recovering from incurable deseases after bathing here. Yunomine is also the site of Tsuboyu, a small cabin with an Onsen bath build into the creek bed. It is the only hot spring in the world that you can bathe in that is registered as UNESCO World Heritage.
