I want to go to a hot spring! “Where is “Jigoku Onsen” in Kumamoto Prefecture?” what kinds of effects are there?
I will answer these questions.
Jigoku Onsen protects Seifuso, Kumamoto’s miraculous hot spring, Suzunoyu, making a fresh start from a major disaster
Hell hot spring “Seifuso” (name changed from “Seifuso”) in Minami Aso Village, which was devastated by the debris flow that hit the Kyushu region in April 2016 right after the Kumamoto earthquake.
This article is about the hot spring villages of Minamiaso Village, Kumamoto Prefecture, Tarutama, and Jigoku Onsen. It has prospered as a hot spring resort since ancient times, and has continued to be loved by people even after more than 200 years. In the Edo period, there was a formality that only the Kumamoto feudal retainers were allowed to bathe, and this is an introduction to the famous hot spring known as a secret hot spring that heals the wounded body.
Restoration from the disaster of “Jigoku Onsen” in Kumamoto Prefecture
There is no need to add water or heat as it is just the right temperature, and the “miracle hot water” that can be used directly from the source springs, healing people’s mind and body. Makoto Kawazu, the 8th generation owner of the hot spring inn. Together with his younger brothers, he protects a traditional hot spring resort.
However, the Kumamoto earthquake six years ago. In June 2016, the mountains surrounding the source collapsed due to heavy rain after the earthquake, causing a large-scale debris flow disaster. Mudslides and muddy streams blackened with mud, rocks and trees hit the hot spring village. Faced with an existential crisis in the aftermath of an earthquake.
“It’s the worst land in Kumamoto,” laments a local survivor.
A hot spring village that is also a symbol of the region. Seifuso, a long-established inn with a history of more than 140 years, suffered devastating damage. The three brothers, Mr. Makoto, Mr. Kenji, and Mr. Susumu, who run the ryokan, continued their struggle to restore and restore the ryokan, saying that they should not let the ryokan end in their own generation.
The three Kawazu brothers, who took over from the previous generation, gritted their teeth and walked the road to reconstruction step by step, saying, “We must not lose this inn that has been around for over 100 years.” However, there was another heavy rain.
A battle with myself that seems to give up. Mr. Kawazu, who had been beaten down and hurt, was faced with a miracle.
Seiunso’s “Suzumenoyu” was still bubbling up. Mr. Kawazu found a glimmer of hope in this and set out to rebuild Seiunso.
Recently, Jigoku Onsen Seifuso has changed its name to Jigoku Onsen Seifuso.
