Hot Springs (Yumura Onsen Village)

Loose Yourself in Thought of the Abyss of Time at a Historic Onsen

Yumura Onsen Village is said to be a hidden bath of Lord Shingen. It is a well-known hot spring said to have been discovered around 1,200 years ago by Kukai, also known as Kobo-Daishi, founder of the Shingon school of Buddhism. During the Meiji (1868 – 1912) and Showa (1926 –1989) periods, the noted literary figures Osamu Dazai, Masuji Ibuse, and Seicho Matsumoto secluded themselves at inns here to concentrate on writing. From that beginning up to the present day, many great minds have come to bathe in these hot springs, giving them a long and distinguished history.

Relaxing in these hot springs, following in the veritable footprints of Lord Shingen and Kobo-Daishi, should make for a memorable highlight to your trip.
