●What is Nuruyu?
The Furuyu and Kumanokawa hot springs in Saga prefecture are characterized by their water temperature of approximately 38°C, for a pleasant, not-too-hot experience. This unique characteristic is known as nuruyu (lukewarm water). Many bathing facilities have several different baths with varying temperatures (atsuyu, or hot water, and nuruyu, or lukewarm water), and alternating between bathing in each allows for bathing for longer periods of time. The not-too-hot water temperature also makes them the perfect spot for those who are not fond of hot baths.
●About Furuyu Onsen
The Furuyu Onsen hot springs are also referred to as the “Hot Springs of Beautiful Skin” as they are known to leave the skin feeling nice and silky smooth.
The beautiful cobblestone streets of the town of Furuyu Onsen are home to 14 ryokan, or traditional Japanese inns. You will also find a growing number of cafes and knick-knack shops run out of renovated traditional Japanese houses, creating the perfect setting to enjoy a leisurely stroll through the town.
●About Kumanokawa Onsen
The Kumanokawa Onsen hot springs are highly valued throughout Japan for the unique properties of their hot spring water, and have come to be known by epithets such as the “hot springs for gout” and the “panacea springs”. They are known as radioactive hot springs as they contain trace amounts of radiation.
The hot springs town stretches out along the Kasegawa River and boasts three ryokan as well as three hot springs facilities for bathing without lodging.
Both the Furuyu and Kumanokawa Onsen hot springs are characterized by their pleasant atmosphere and healing properties, as well as their not-too-hot temperatures which allow for enjoying soaking in the baths for longer periods of time.
It will surely be a leisurely, relaxing experience!
