Culture sight seeing (general)

Novelists and hot springs(小説家と温泉)

There were novelists who wrote with staying inns in a hot spring. For me, who loves hot springs, I think it’s a completely enviable way of working.

There is a literature museum in Kinosaki Onsen in Toyooka City, Hyogo Prefecture. There are exhibitions of novelists who stayed.

One of the springs in Kinosaki where hot and healthy water comes up.

The representative is Naoya Shiga (1883-1971). He wrote a novel entitled “In Kinosaki”.

His works have been translated into English. If you are interested, why don’t you read it?
