The hot spring with 600 years of history

The name Atsushio Onsen was derived from the characteristic “atsui” (lit. hot) and “shoppai” (lit. salty) spring water. The temperature of the fountainhead water is about 65 degree C. The water is salty because this area used to be the bottom of the ocean. This hot spring has been popular for 600 years.
