Bandai Atami Cooperative of Hot Spring Inns

【Origin of Bandai Atami Hot Springs】
After the punitive expedition of Oshu Hiraizumi by Minamoto Yoritomo in 1189, Mr. Ito, a feudatory, became a lord of Asaka County and named this land Atami after his birthplace, Izu. The name, Atami (Hot ocean) indicates that hot spring welled up same as Atami of Izu at that time though they had no ocean near the area. Around the time of Kenmu in Nampokucho period, Princess Hagi, a beautiful daughter of a noble, was suffering from an incurable disease in Kyoto.?


She received a revelation from Fudomyoo to visit a spirit spring situated at the 500th riverside to the northeast of Capital and to take a bath to cure the disease. She and her maid took a way toward Tohoku. Overcoming many hardships, they arrived at the 500th river and took a bath. The hot spring cured her sickness completely, and then she appreciated it and went back to Kyoto. This Hagihime legend is known as the origin of "Hot Spring of beauty". The old-style of "Hagihime Festival" related to this legend is held in every August.
