A Secret of the Land The Famous Tohoku Hot Spring Tsuchiyu Onsen
“Tsuchiyu” is said to be a town name transformed from “tsukiyu” (hot spring gushing from the ground which a man thrusted).
There are two legends told about the origin of this name Tuchiyu(Tukiyu).
One tells that Prince Shotoku revealed that the “tsukiyu” of Iwashiro Province had healing powers, while another tells that it came to be called “tsukiyu” because in the age of gods, a god Oanamuchi no Mikoto thrust his spear into the banks of the Arakawa River causing hot water to spring forth.
Watch the illumination of the Taishido Hall, connected to these legends, and enjoy Tsuchiyu Onsen, a famous Tohoku hot spring that has remained unchanged for over 1,000 years. Spring Type of Tuchiyu : Simple hot spring
