Kawaji Onsen Hot Spring

Travel Guide - Kawaji Onsen Hot Spring


Kawaji Onsen Hot Spring is a famous onsen district situated near the merging of the Kinugawa and Ojikagawa Rivers, whose waters are said to heal wounds and burns respectively.
The hot spring was accidentally discovered when this area was damaged from flooding from Lake Ikari-ko in 1723.
Kawaji Onsen Hot Spring has been known as the "Inner room of Kinugawa Onsen Hot Spring" since then.
The town area hosts the Onade Rock — a sexually suggestive stone which is said to promote fertility and easy childbirth.
