The Kinugawa Onsen originates from the Taki Onsen that was discovered on the west bank of the Kinugawa River in the Edo period. After that, another Onsen gushed forth on the east bank and was named as the Fujiwara Onsen. Since then, people have called combination of these two Onsens as the Kinugawa Onsen, and now the Onsen resort is known as “a place for treat in the Kanto region” and attracts many travelers. This Onsen resort currently has more than 80 hotels and ryokans including modernistic hotels with many guest rooms and open air bathes. The Onsen of Kinugawa has been famous for the effect to heal burn injuries, and has enjoyed the nickname as the “healer of burn injuries” since the old days.
