With an 800 year history, the hot spring town Misasa has come a long way. Said to have been discovered by a monk named Myoken Ｈosatu aided by a white wolf, the spring water boasts the highest radon content in the world. This radon content, which can also be inhaled, is said to have numerous health effects. A short distance from the Hot spring area is Mt. Mitoku which contains the national treasure “Nageiredo Tempe”, along with various other important cultural properties. Culture, nature, and hot springs make the forests and valleys of Misasa a top travel destination. Bath your body in the springs, and cleanse your mind on Mt. Mitoku. Welcome to the Misasa’s healing hot springs.
