Legend has it that this secluded area was first inhabited by ill-fated Taira clan warriors in the late 12th century after their defeat in a lengthy power struggle known as the Genpei War (1180-1185). Much as before, the area remains known for its remote location and restorative waters. Enjoy a relaxing escape as you explore undeveloped nature and hot springs.
