☆Hell refers to the crater where fumarolic air, thermal mud and hot water are spiraling from the ground around 100 degrees. Some of Hells offer hot spring bath for foot.
☆I recommend steaming sand baths along the beach, because the sand heated by the steam containing marine minerals is scientifically proven to have therapeutic effects on neuralgia, rheumatism, back pain and other ailments.
☆Walking through the Kannawa hot spring town where steam rises here and there, you can taste the old fashioned hot spring resort that boasts a rich amount of hot water.
