Enjoy a "beautification hot spring" with a spring quality not often seen around the world

With the highest number of hot springs in all of the Japanese prefectures, Hokkaido is a hot spring paradise. Among its 250 plus hot spring areas, the area in Hokkaido that is famous for having a hot spring not often seen around the world is the "Tokachigawa Hot Spring." Most hot springs are volcanic in nature, but the Tokachigawa Hot Spring is a "moor hot spring," which means its heat source is actually plant matter. "Moor" comes from the German word for bog or swamp (peatland), and the accumulation of ancient plant matter underneath the Tokachi plains swamp area provides the heat source for this hot spring spot.

The spring quality is like a natural skin lotion

Because this hot spring comes from plant matter, it does not irritate the skin. And its abundance of natural preservatives might just be what gives your skin that characteristic smoothness after bathing. Its therapeutic properties are good for things like motor impairment, lower back pain, nerve pain, rheumatism, and improving of skin conditions. This amazing spring water quality has made the spring famous as a "beautification spring," and its beautification effect is even called a "natural skin lotion."

The effects of the Tokachigawa "beautification hot spring" has drawn the attention of companies, even going so far as to be used in making skin care products. With its mild alkalinity and gentleness, Tokachigawa bathing water is recommended not only for women, but also for anyone with delicate skin. Treat your skin to a designated Hokkaido legacy and one of the world's preeminent "beautification springs."
