Indispensable information on a fascinating area
Visit Kirishima Onsen Tourist Information Center at Kirishima Onsen Village to learn more about what to do in this very volcanic area. What are fumaroles? Why do they have such a distinctive aroma? Which hot spring is best for me? Get answers to these questions and learn about the onsen village's history from the center’s English-speaking staff, who can help you choose from the nine hot springs and various tectonic attractions spread out over Kirishima's southern foothills.
Different hot springs have different temperatures and mineral content, which in turn provide different health and beauty benefits.
