Hot Spring, Scenery

Houri River Hot Spring “Bijin no yu”


Get silky, smooth skin!

This hot spring is situated at the foot of Mt. Okue, and has come to be called “bijin no yu,” or “spring of beauty.” You can enjoy gazing up at beautiful mountains while soaking in the natrium-ion and hydrogen carbonate-ion rich water in the indoor and outdoor baths. The water is known to break down sebum and washes the pores clean, resulting in perfectly smooth skin. The hot spring is also known to relieve the symptoms of rheumatism and neuralgia. There are various leisure spots nearby where you can go mountain climbing or camping before you relax in the bath.
