Aoni Hot Spring is also known as “Lamp no Yado Aoni Onsen”.
Located in the woods at an elevation of 636 meters, Lamp no Yado Aoni Onsen is a one-of-a-kind hot spring inn which relies only on lamp light just as the old days without electricity.
Once a little-known hot spring, it became a hot spring inn in 1929 after a Kuroishi born poet name Yogaku Niwa, who had ties with well-known poets such as Takuboku Ishikawa, Bokusui Wakayama, and Shiko Munakata, built a cabin to rest to recover from his illness in 1928.
