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.

指宿名物 砂むし温泉

砂むし温泉は指宿に300年以上前から伝わる入浴法で、温かい砂に身体を埋めて入ります。砂に浸かることで血液の循環が良くなり、汗が吹き出します。効果は通常の温泉入浴の3倍とも言われており、美容&癒し効果のあるオリジナル「びわの葉入り」砂むしもおススメです。地元では「スメ」と呼ばれる温泉の蒸気を利用した天然の「かまど」が親しまれています。夕食時、砂むし温泉に見立てた「セイロ砂むし料理」では、旬の野菜類の旨味が味わえます。
