Atsumi hot spring

With its history of more than 1000 years, this old hot spring is located along Atsumi river.
Hotels are staning along the river at the foot of Mount Atsumi which is about 2km acended from the mouth of Atsumi river. The origin of discovery has several theories. Some says a child appeared in Kouboudaishi's dream and gave him a wise remark. The others say a woodman found the wounded crane bathing its leg into the spring water.
Astumi hot spring was loved by famous writers and artists such as Akiko Yosano or Riichi Yokomitsu. From April and the beginning of December, morning market is held everyday and this has been continued for more than 260 years.
