Onsen in Nachikatsuura

An onsen is a Japanese hot spring, often developed as a public bath (sento) or spa. Crucially, the hot water should originate from a volcanic spring. As well as bathing facilities, onsens should include accommodation, extravagant cooking and all manner of relaxing pastimes - massages, aromatherapy, relaxation rooms and comfortable surroundings.
