It is said that this hot spring was first discovered by En-nin-houshi, a high priest who was guided by an injured white heron, about 1,200 years ago. This is the reason that this therapeutic hot spring is also called the “Sagino-yu.” As an access from Kansai Area is easy and convenient, many people come and visit this hot spring.
