Enjoy four spas in Kaga Hot Spring Resort

Yamashiro Spa

In 725, Gyoki, a noted priest, found a crow healing its wound with spring water when he was on his way to the sacred Mt. Hakusan for ascetic practices. The crow was a “yata crow” , the legendary crow with three legs that had guided the first emperor, Emperor Jinmu. The legendary crow is used as the logo of the Japan Football Association, as a symbol for victory.
