This hot spring village boasts a unique atmosphere, with steam rising up here and there from the community located between the rivers, and the murmuring of the beautiful waters. The area has long been loved as a town with healing springs, and from the start of the Showa period (1926-1989) it became known as the “Inner Parlor of Kyushu,” a hot spring town with an ancient and honorable origin that was a busy entertainment district.
Traces of the Showa period linger unchanged to this day, such as the “Sedoya,” a traditional narrow back alleyway.
This onsen town is familiar as a place frequented by many people of culture, and for its wonderful atmosphere, beloved as a location for movies and music.
