It is said that Takeo Onsen originated about 1,600 years ago when the Empress Jingu, upon returning from Korea, poked the ground with a spear and the hot spring flowed out. The vermillion gate, the symbol of the hot spring, is reminiscent of Ryugu Castle. The gate was created by Tatsuno Kingo of Saga Prefecture who created the red brick design of Tokyo Station. The hot springs are alkaline and colorless, and leave a silky smooth feel that is said to help recover from fatigue. The hot springs have been visited by many notable people, such as the Saga clan, Miyamoto Musashi, Philipp Franz von Siebold, and others.
