|Yumura hot spring town
The town is located in about 3 kilometers northwest from the Kofu Station, and is an old hot spring resort town at the foot of Yumura mountain. When Kobo Taishi was making a pilgrimage all over Japan, he dropped here in Yumura in 808. As he saw people suffering with disease and injuries, he pointed his stick to the ground, saying bathing in a medical bath is good for the health; then a hot water spouted and made the people healthy.
|Kofu hot spring town
We call several hot spring bathing places in the Kofu City, as Kofu onsenkyo. They say it is unusual that a capital town has hot springs in the center of the city in Japan.

About 5 kilometers in the north from the Kofu Station, a hot spring town, which is located at the foot of Yougai mountain, where Shingen was born; and this is famous as one of the secret spas of Shingen. There are two hot spring areas, an old hot spring and a new one, and we call both of them Sekisuiji onsen.
