"Yuzutsu" at Yunomine Onsen(Yunomine onsen no yuzutsu)


Blessing of Hot-springs to Everyone

At the public hotspring cooking basin called “Yuzutsu” in the center of the town of Yunomine Onsen, 90-degree spring water wells up. Here you can boil eggs and vegetables. You can also boil chestnuts in autumn. The stone statue of “Yuzutsu Jizo” protects the Yuzutsu. This Jizo is also “Kodakara Jizo (Child-giving Jizo)” because it is said that women who use the Yunomine Onsen  became blessed with children.
