Hijiori Onsen is a small, quiet hot spring town nestled at the foot of Mt. Gassen, one of the three sacred mountains of Dewa. It’s said that the hot springs here were discovered by a monk in the year 807 CE, over 1,200 years ago. The town is notable for being one of the few remaining destinations in Japan for long-term hot-spring therapy, called toji, popular with those recuperating from physical ailments. The twenty Japanese inns (ryokan) of Hijiori Onsen each have free-flowing hot spring baths, and there are also five footbaths in town, each unique.
