Moritake Onsen

The hot spring waters of Mitane’s Moritake Onsen area are known for their high temperatures and unusually high levels of sodium and calcium salts. The area is also famous for junsai nabe, a summer hotpot dish that features watershield, the local agricultural specialty.

Hot Springs

The Moritake Onsen source was discovered by accident during an oil drilling operation in 1952. The water comes out of the ground at almost 60°C and is stored in tanks until it cools to around 50°C before being pumped into the baths. The spring is said to be one of the saltiest in Japan, and is reputedly effective in relieving skin complaints such as eczema.

Junsai Nabe

This hotpot dish highlights local hinai-jidori chicken and watershield (junsai), a plant that grows in shallow, clear ponds. The town of Mitane is Japan’s largest producer of this seasonal delicacy, and the plant appears in numerous local dishes. Unlike most types of hotpot, which are winter fare, junsai nabe is available from May to August, during the watershield harvest season.
