Hot Springs in Kitaibaraki Area
With sites like Izura Coast, which was where Tenshin Okakura, a pioneer in modern art, based his activities, Isohara Coast, where Ujo Noguchi, a nursery rhyme poet, was born, and Hanazono Gorge, which is a famous site for viewing autumn leaves, the Kitaibaraki area is blessed with mountains, seas, and lush natural surroundings.
Hot spring waters gush forth in a variety of locations, and the water is even stored in wells. Take a leisurely soak and your chilled body will be warmed to the core. Many of the hot spring inns in the area pride themselves on their seafood dishes, and the local anglerfish hotpot is something you absolutely must try.
