Ogoto Hot Spring YUMOTOKAN > HotSprings
It has been said that Ogoto Hot Springs were opened about 1,200 years ago by Saicho, however there is another story…
Once upon a time, there lived a snake that had 8 heads in a valley named “Hebigatani” and the valley that the snake lived had a pond called “Nenbutsuike”. When a villager said a prayer and threw in a coin, the groundwater bubbled and the villager got his wish. It is said the pond turned into Ogoto Hot Springs.
