The Origin of Misasa Hot Springs

The Origin of Misasa Hot Springs

The origin of Misasa Hot Springs dates back approximately 850 years. When a samurai named Ōkubo Saumanosuke encountered an old white wolf, he first intended to shoot it with a bow but told himself that white wolf was a messenger of a God and decided to let it free. That night, Myoken Daibosatsu, a Buddhist deity appeared in his dream and told him where to find a hot spring in appreciation of sparing the life of the white wolf. The legendary hot spring is said to have been healing the villagers ailments as a hot spring of salvation ever since. It is now a communal bath called “Kabuyu.” 

The legend has been told since the end of Heian Period when Samanosuke stopped by Mt. Mitoku on his pilgrimage. Samanosuke was a vassal of the leader of Genji clan, Minamoto no Yoshitomo and went on his pilgrimage to wish for a victory for Genpei War. While he was in Misasa to heal his body, he had the encounter with the white wolf.
