SpotMisasa Onsen

Misasa Onsen, one of the San'in district's most famous hot springs, has an 800-year history. It has its traditional origin in a folk tale of a white wolf: when a retainer of Minamoto no Yoshitomo (1123-1160), a famous warrior who was killed after being defeated in battle, went to Mount Mitoku to pray for the restoration of the his former master's family fortunes, he saw a white wolf but did not kill it. In fact, the white wolf was an emissary of Bodhisattva. In the night the Bodhisattva appeared to him in a dream and told him of a secret hot spring location in return for his mercy. This onsen has the highest quantity of radium in its waters in the world. The transparent and soft-feeling water is good for drinking as well, and is effective for gastrointestinal disorders.
