Travel Guide - Tokko-no-yu Spa

Information

Tokko-no-yu is a hot spring gushes beside the Katsura-gawa River.
This is the symbol of Shuzenji Onsen Hot Spring, where in the past people used to bathe.
Tokko-no-yu is the oldest host spring in Izu and the symbol of Shuzenji.

Legend says when a great Buddhist monk Kukai (Kobo-Daishi) visited here in 807, he saw a child washing the back of his ill father with cold water.
Kukai was greatly moved by the sight, and so that the child can use hot water, he cracked a rock on the river bank with his Vajra iron club, a holy Buddhist implement which is called “Tokko” in Japanese, from which the hot spring water came out.
