Meet the seven gods of good luck

Among the many places to bathe in Ito Onsen, there are eight unique public bathhouses associated with Ito's seven deities of good luck. You can follow a path from one to the next.

Hot springs for everyone

The main types of hot springs here are simple springs, and weak salt springs. Simple springs are gentle on the skin and body, making them ideal for infants and the elderly. Weak salt springs are also known as "Netsu no Yu," (literally "fever hot water") because the minerals of the water keep the body warm after bathing. The springs are believed to have various healing properties.

Go museum hopping

There are several museums in Ito. There is the Ikea Museum of 20th Century Art, which primarily exhibits and houses humanity-themed paintings and sculptures of the 20th century. There is also the Music Box Museum of Izu, which exhibits about 130 items, mainly music boxes, automatic musical instruments, and phonographs.
