Unzen-onsen Hot Spring
Unzen-onsen is a hot spring town located in the treasure of nature, Japan's oldest national park. The hot spring also has a long history, and is an international sightseeing destination developed as a summer resort for foreign visitors in the 1910s. The town is divided into three areas; "Furu-yu," "Shin-yu" and "Shojigoku." Each displays a unique atmosphere with white vapor emanating from the blowholes called "Unzen Jigoku," the Hell of Unzen. It is a strong acid spring containing sulfur, which is said to have excellent antiseptic qualities and work particularly well for making the skin beautiful.
