Ibusuki Specialty: Sunamushi Onsen

  • Click this image to enlarge.

Sunamushi Onsen is the bathing method with a history of more than 300 years in Ibusuki. People soak their body under hot sands. Having one’s body soaked under sands, blood circulation will be promoted and sweat will pour. The perspiration effect is said to be 3 times comparing to normal hot spring bathing. The original Sunamushi bathing with Biwa leaves in sands is especially recommended, which has esthetic and heeling effects. Additionally, a natural oven called “Sume” using the steam of the spa is popular here. At the dinner, you can taste steam cooked seasonal fresh vegetables “Seiro Sunamushi Dish”, which imitates Sunamshi Onsen.
