Hot spring

The accommodation facilities’ springs are renowned as having beautifying effects on the skin. This area is therefore popular with women, who come seeking smooth and supple skin. It has also been said that immersing in a hot spring improves metabolism and blood circulation thanks to the heat, water pressure, buoyancy, and other various factors. It also has been said to have detoxification effects. Soaking in a hot spring also helps relax and calm your mood, alleviating exhaustion.
