Shirahama Onsen is a traditional Onsen town with a long history of over 1300 years, known as “Muro-no-yu” or “Ki-no-yu” since the Asuka and Nara Periods (the latter half of the 6th to the 8th century), visited by such emperors as Saimei, Tenji, Jito and Monmu. Shirahama is known for its mild weather, with three of its sides surrounded by the Pacific Ocean. Scenic spots such as Senjojiki and Sandanbeki along the coast, as well as Engetsu-to Island, are also located in the area. At the hot spring bath near Shirarahama Beach, you can bathe with your swimming suit on.
