Oily smelling hot water changes your life?
"Toyotomi Onsen" is a small Onsen town located on the northernmost part of Japan.
The water containing crude oil is said to have superior moisturizing effects, and the story of its effects against eczema has spread, making many to come from all over Japan.
The smell of crude oil is overwhelming, when you actually get in the water. It is not a place to relax, but it thoroughly warms your body and leaves it with a distinctive sliminess. The water does feel like it would be good for the skin. You can choose from the water for treatment purposes, with floating oil droplets, or normal Onsen bath at the Toyotomi Onsen Fureai Center.
This is Shigeru Ozaki at the concierge desk of Toyotomi Onsen Fureai Center. He encountered Toyotomi Onsen when he was suffering from severe eczema and had given up on life. His severe skin condition has improved since he moved here, and he now works to help others who come from all over Japan looking for the healing water.
In addition to Mr. Ozaki, there are many people who were saved by Toyotomi Onsen. They have moved to this area and created "Toyotomi Onsen Moriage Tai" to "pay back to the Onsen."
