Along the Oyunuma River exploration trail, near Taisho Jigoku, you can enjoy a natural footbath using the hot spring water that flows from Oyunuma Pond and heal your fatigued feet. Enjoy taking a “forest bath” while surrounded by the lushness of nature!


Oyunuma is a gourd-shaped swamp that was created in the ruins of the Kuttara volcano’s caldera. It is a hot spring pond of rare size, with a circumference of approximately 1 kilometer. At the bottom of the swamp, sulfur springs with a temperature of approximately 130°C gush out, and the surface temperature is approximately 40°C to 50°C.
