Wakura Onsen history dates back to approximately 1200 years, beginning around the same year the hot springs began to flow. Initially, the hot springs began gushing in Maruyama’s Yunotani, in the west of Yakushidake, and then it is said that due to tectonic activity, the spring opening moved 60 meters off the coast into the sea. Later, during the Eisho period (1046-1052), a fisherman couple living in Wakura saw a white heron healing its body from steam, rising from the ocean and that’s how the yu-no-waku-ura (bay of the rising steam) or wakura was discovered.
