- Shima Onsen
It is said that Shima Onsen can heal 40,000 different types of illnesses and disorders. Against a backdrop of traditional Japanese vistas that have been well preserved, this onsen resort area has struck a harmonious balance between the old – as represented by tranquil wooden inns – and the new – as represented by the presence of modern hotels. Spa enthusiasts looking to unwind in a relaxing environment are encouraged to pay a visit.
- Savor Fresh Local Delicacies
Local farmers endeavor as much as possible to offer customers fresh, unprocessed foods harvested locally. Treat your palate to such local delicacies as rice, vegetables, and fruits.
- Historical Structures
Shima Onsen is home to several historical structures – including Hinata Yakushi Temple, an important cultural property distinctly covered by a thatched roof (see photograph) – that stand as solemn reminders of bygone days.
