Yusong Foot Spa (Hangul유성온천) is a free, natural hotspring located in Yusong,[1] a district of Daejeon, South Korea. According to the Korean language signboard posted on the site, the Yusong Foot Spa opened October 5, 2007. It is an outdoor “wading pool” approximately 10 inches (30 cm) deep, with an irregular outline 60 feet (15 m) long and averaging roughly 4 feet (1 m) wide between edges finished with stones and benches allowing visitors and passersby to sit while dabbling their feet in the water. Parts of the bottom are lined with smooth rock and pebble to provide a foot massage to those strolling through the water. A gazebo covers one end of the wading pool.

The Foot Spa is open year round, 24 hours a day, in a small park in downtown Yuseong, and is free to the public.[1] The park features fountains, streams, colorful lighting, a water wheel, and a vending machine for towels. The foot spa is well frequented by locals.

According to the signboard beside the foot spa, the spring’s waters originate between 215 and 450 meters deep and have various minerals. The water temperature is variable and rather high, ranging from a steamy 41 degrees to a blazing 57 degrees Celsius.

A small photograph and a short paragraph on the topic may be found at the Yusong City website.
