Day trips to enjoy the well-known hot spring of Atami
The history of Atami’s hot spring waters is old, dating back over 1,000 years. From 1603 when Japan was ruled by the Edo shogunate generals for about 250 years, the Shogun Tokugawa Ieyasu made a special trip to visit the special healing waters of Atami. The shogun was so impressed with the healing powers of the water that he had some taken to Edo (Tokyo) by boat and thus Atami became famous throughout Japan.
Atami is still rich with the amount of water that flows out; enjoy the source of the water as it flows throughout the city.
Once operated as inns, many older hot spring hotels have wonderful atmosphere and bathing facilities that have warmed people of the city for a long time. There are even public baths and bathing facilities to be enjoyed just for a day, so come and enjoy yourself!
