Okutsu Onsen

Nishiwaga Town

Southern Iwate

Hot Herb Kinshu, the only inn in Okutsu Onsen, has a unique ``walking bath'' that you won't find anywhere else in the town. Walking bath, as the name suggests, is a bathing method that increases the effect by walking, and is the original of this hot spring bath. There is a walking course in the bathtub, and the bottom is lined with cobblestones, which stimulate pressure points on the soles of your feet and improve blood circulation.
