Hashiriyu Hot Spring is a rare side-cave type source in Japan and one of the three oldest springs in Japan. The cave is about 150cm high and 5m deep, but the steam is so thick that you cannot see what is ahead, making you sweat like in a hot spring sauna. In the gutter for the source, 170 liters of hot spring water at about 70 degrees Celsius gushes out every minute, and the rocks are discolored by the hot spring water.
The hot spring is said to have opened about 1,300 years ago when En no Gyoja (a Japanese ascetic) visited the area after being exiled to Izu Oshima and discovered this hot spring. The name "Hashiriyu" (lit. running water) comes from the way the hot water gushes out from the mountain and falls vigorously to the coast.
It is said that Minamoto no Yoritomo and Tokugawa Ieyasu also soaked in this spring. The calcium sodium chloride spring contains a good balance of minerals and is effective for rheumatism, neuralgia, and cold sores.
