Shima Onsen Legend of the sacred spring

Did you know that Sekizen Shima Onsen is designated as the first national recreation hot spring area?
The history of a spa sanatorium began in the 700s of the Christian era, and has healed people to the extent that the legend that it is a spiritual spring that "heals the illness of Shima (Yonman)" was born.
It contains a lot of moisturizing ingredient "meta-silicic acid" that promotes the metabolism of the skin, and has an outstanding skin-beautifying effect.
Please return with smooth skin.
