Unique Baths

Bentenzaki Gensen Park has attracted a lot of attention as a hot spring spot that is gentle on women. The hand bath for warming the body extremities is popular among women who cannot soak in the foot bath due to the wearing of tights or stockings. The bench, heated from underneath by hot water, is also praised highly by women who are prone to poor circulation. “Gentle is Noto and so are its hot springs” as the old saying may go. As such, visitors are invited to enjoy the blessings of the hot springs in all kinds of ways.

Local Specialty of “Shio-Ontama”

Cooked with just the right amount of heat and salt. Creamy, salted, hot spring eggs, a Wakura specialty.

Hot spring eggs may be made at two places; Yumoto no Hiroba and Bentenzaki Gensen Park. They are easy to make! Eggs are placed in the basket provided, then submerged in the hot spring for 13 to 16 minutes. They are cooked slowly by the water, at a temperature of around 90℃, turning them into creamy, soft boiled eggs. The underwater hot spring contains natural salt, giving the eggs a subtle salty taste, which is the secret to their popularity. They also serve to replenish the salt in your body after soaking in hot springs or enjoying a stroll.

Raw eggs can be bought from a neighboring shop. Some shops even let visitors borrow dishes, spoons and timers.

13 to 16 minutes is the recommended time. Visitors can enjoy a stroll or relax as they stare at the steam rising out of the springhead while they wait.

Gently peel away the eggshell to expose the creamy egg inside! The salty flavor that fills the mouth is the key to Wakura’s specialty.
