Enjoy four spas in Kaga Hot Spring Resort

Yamanaka Spa

This spa was opened by Priest Gyoki around 1,300 years ago. Then, the spa was devastated by successive wars. However, at the end of the Heian Period, the land steward of the Noto Domain, Nobutsura Hasebe, found an egret healing its injured leg, when he was hunting hawks. When Nobutsura dug a hole at the same place, the Buddha of Healing appeared, and clear hot water started to spring up.
