Yumura Onsen Specialty: Hot Spring Water Hair-Washing
The town of Shinonsen's name means "new hot spring," so it's no surprise all the local hair salons use hot spring water for washing their customers' hair. The water at Yumura Hot Spring contains sodium, hydrogen carbonate, chloride and sulfur. It removes dirt and fat and softens the scalp to keep hair healthy. Hot springs are not just for bathing. Washing your hair with hot spring water relieves weariness and relaxes you. It's an experience you won't want to miss out on during your trip.
