The seven locations of hot springs Yuzaki, Oura, Kogaura, Tsuna Shirazu, Shirahama, Higashi-Shirahama, and Shin-Shirahama are altogether called "Nanki Shirahama Onsen". These hot springs have appeared in Man'yoshu (the oldest extant collection of Japanese poetry) and Nihon Shoki (the second-oldest book of classical Japanese history). Hot springs were visited by Emperor Saimei and Emperor Tenji, and they are one of the three ancient springs in Japan. Many hot springs' facilities and hotels are scattered along the coast, surrounding Shirarahama Beach, and making it a tourist destination with a history of more than 1350 years. Shirahama Onsen was considered to be a mysterious hot spring because there is no volcanic belt in the vicinity, but recent researches said that high-temperature groundwater exuded from a plate in the Philippine Sea and has accumulated here.

    "The only existing communal bath ""Saki-no-Yu"" in ""Yuzaki-Nanayu"" is the oldest bath in Japan. In addition, there are communal baths that retain the old-fashioned atmosphere, such as the historic ""Muro-no-Yu"" hot spring and the high-salt ""Matsu-no-Yu"" hot spring.
    * ""Saki-no-Yu"" is tattoo-friendly
    * Since hot water flows into the sea, shampoo, conditioner, soap, etc. can not be used."
