Spa

Bathhouse and open-air bath

In the foothills of Mt Yufu, a hot spring gushes forth, its color changing with the passage of time in response to sunlight and temperature.
The spring quality has a strong alkalinity and is very soft on the skin. Its marvelous smoothness is especially popular among women.
This is also wondrous water. It is transparent and colorless when first poured into the bathtub, but the color changes with time to a light cobalt blue in response to sunlight and temperature. Then, the color darkens and finally turns a milky white.
"Taking a morning bath in water tattooed blue ..." is a poem by poet Santoka about this famous hot spring.
