Hello! There is a Foot Hot Spring which is 4.3 kilometers
from Hotaka Station (JR Oito Line). It’s free of charge!
That bathwater is not so hot but if you take your time bathing
in the hot spring, you can feel get warm gradually.
This hot spring is the perfect place to go and relax after a long hike or cycling!
It’s interesting that there is a monument of eight giant man’s faces
in the middle of the hot spring!
Who on earth is that man?! A hero or a guardian deity!?
You can also soak in a hot spring for the whole body
at neighboring Shakunage-so and Azumino Kenko-kan.
For your information,Shakunage-so is scheduled to be redeveloped
with new hot spring facilities on October 3,this year!
