Price information

Jioujhihze used to be called “Shozui”(indicating the hot spring)by the locals. Under the Japanese administration, Japanese loggers built a hot spring bath room here and bathing in the hot spring became a precious enjoyment in logger’s life. Japanese called the hot spring “Hadonozawa“(ハトノ沢) and later its name was changed into“Zenze”in 1969. It was not until 2006 that its original name was restored.

Jioujhihze Hot Spring


The source of Jioujhihze hot spring water comes from the cracks of stone on the hillside. The temperature there is about 140°C and is ameliorated to 38-42°C at hot spring bathing area to feel comfortable for human body. The hot spring here has no odor and is clear. Its content is weak based Sodium bicarbonate spring which can make skin feel slippery. So, it has the nickname “Hot Spring for Beauties”. The facilities here include a SPA pool, naked bathing pools for men and women, and the outdoor family thermal bathing area.
