Discovered more than 300 years ago, these venerable Onsen were open only to monks and daimyo samurai visiting Nikko at that time. Since opening to the public in late 19th century, the hot springs have had many visitors and developed into a great spa resort. The water is smooth and gentle on the skin with a light alkalinity, and is thought to help nerve pain and stiff shoulders, relieve tiredness and promote good health. There are many theme parks in the area, and it is also popular for sightseeing.
