Yudaonsen is a simple alkaline hot spring and its soft spring water that is very gentle on the skin is its hallmark feature. The colorless, clear hot spring water is believed to have therapeutic benefits for ailments such as neuralgia, muscular pain, joint pain, frozen shoulder, motor paralysis, stiffness of joints, bruises, joint sprains, chronic digestive disorders, hemorrhoids, poor circulation, recuperation after illness, fatigue recovery, and improving one’s health. However, the most notable characteristic is the alkaline content of the water. Spring water with high alkalinity in the range of pH9.14 is said to make the skin soft and smooth. The temperature of the source spring is 72°C, and it retains its high temperature, which is very rare for a non-volcanic hot spring. Yudaonsen is also surprisingly endowed with copious amounts of hot spring water, with a flow of about 2,000 tons per day. Yudaonsen Hot Spring is indeed a bountiful blessing of nature.
Yunoya was completed in December 2011. One of seven Yudaonsen hot spring sources, Yunoya was developed as a tourist facility where visitors could enjoy viewing the source of a hot spring that releases 2,000 tons of hot spring water a day. An 8m high timber structure tower is the symbol of this facility. It is here that visitors can view through an inspection window the continual gush of 125 liters of hot spring water per minute rising from the spring source 500m below the ground. There is also a potable spring water drinking place where visitors can actually drink the spring water. Be sure to take a moment to look at the display explaining the therapeutic benefits of Yudaonsen Hot Spring and introducing the people of Yudaonsen.
