Once upon a time, a fisherman found an injured turtle resting on a sandy beach.
He saw the turtle again on the next day… and the day after.
The fisherman was mystified and put his hand into the sand to find it warm!
This fairy tale is an origin of Yunohama hot spring source nearby and Kameya is named after the Turtle,
which is “Kame” in Japanese. The clear hot water is said to cure and refresh the body and soul.
Hot spring water trickles down peacefully to a lovely turtle sculpture at the entrance of Kameya.
The drinkable hot spring water, a blessing from Mother Nature, effects digestive function.
