The natural hot spring spa is located at the mouth of Meiji-no-Mori Minoh Quasi-National Park. In addition to a stone-built large communal bath and saunas, the spa has open-air baths offering spectacular views of the verdant Minoh mountains and of the stretch between Osaka and Kobe. The sodium hydrogen carbonate spring is known as bijin-no-yu (beauty spring) because of its benefits to the skin. Legend has it that an ascetic who was training at the Minoh Waterfall was visited by Sarasvati and was granted spiritual enlightenment. The hot spring was named Goko-no-yu (hot spring of five scents) after the fact that the appearance of the deity was accompanied by the five scents of sandalwood, agalloch, clove bud, benzoin and clove fruit. The hot spring is thought to be effective for many ailments including nervous breakdowns, wounds, chronic gynecological disorders and neuralgia. In addition to baths there is a resort hotel, bowling alleys and a swimming pool, making the spa popular with families as well. Visitors can enjoy a highland resort just 30 minutes from Umeda.
