Many of Japan's mountains are active volcanoes. Even the famous Mt. Fuji had been active as a volcano until the Modern Age. In this light, hot springs can be found all over the country. Since ancient times, the Japanese people have been very fond of these hot springs, which have become part of the Japanese lifestyle. The hot spring is effective in treating injuries and illnesses as well as relieving fatigue. If you visit a hot-spring resort, you will find that the majority of the accommodation facilities offer hot spring baths. You will also find many places where you can bathe in a hot spring without staying overnight. Roten-buro, which is an open-air spa, is extremely popular, so you should give it a try when traveling in Japan.
