Shimosuwa Onsen, Myth of Wata-no-yu

  • "Yudama legend" -The beginning of Wata-no-yu

    There is a myth that has been passed down about the hot Wata-no-yu."
    One day, the goddess residing in Suwa Taisha Kamisha made a "yudama" out of cotton soaked in hot water, which she always uses, and took it to Suwa Taisha Shimosha Akimiya of the Lower Suwa Taisha Shrine.

    At that moment, hot water dripped from the cotton wool the goddess was holding, and the water fell onto the earth, causing hot springs to gush forth from Kamisuwa to Shimosuwa.

    And finally, when the goddess arrived at Suwa Taisha Shimosha,
    It is said that the place where he left his cotton is the current source of the `` Wata-no-yu'' source.The sacred hot spring waters that have been bubbling away since the Age of the Gods have soothed all who bathe in them, both in the past and today.

    Also, since Wata-no-yu is a sacred spring brought by the gods, there is a legend that if a person with a bad heart enters the spring, the water will become muddy.This legend is about the "clear and muddy water outlet," which is counted as one of the Seven Wonders of Suwa Taisha and Shimosha.

    On the morning of New Year's Day, the Suwa Taisha Wata-no-yu Ceremony at the source of Wata-no-yu, to celebrate the blessings of the hot springs brought by the gods.
