Shuzenji Onsen is one of the oldest and most famous hot spring resort towns on the Izu Peninsula.
Traditional hostels, modest bamboo forests and fairytale bridges embellish the beautiful town.
The quaint Shuzenji Onsen is said to be the little Kyoto of Izu.
Shuzenji Onsen was named after Shuzenji Temple at the center of town.
Kobo Daishi, one of Japan’s most important religious personalities, founded the temple about 1200 years ago.
Today, it is a Zen Buddhist temple where visitors can participate in meditation classes.
Kobo Daishi is also said to have created Shuzenji’s most prominent hot spring, Tokko-no-yu, located in the middle of the river bed that runs through the town center.
Today, Tokko-no-yu is used as a foot bath.
