Introduction of Hot Springs (Onsen)

"The Beauty of Many Islands" describes the Seto Inland Sea, where the island of olives, Shodo-Shima, floats. It's also known as the location for the movie Twenty Four Eyes.

From any of the hot springs scattered on the island, you can savor the charm of Seto - the calm blue sea spreading before your eyes, boats weaving through the islands with white trails, and the burning red sunset over the sea.
