Yuda Onsen hot spring is said to have been born approximately 800 years ago. There is a legend of an injured white fox submerging itself into the hot spring water to heal its wounds.
Located near the Yamaguchi Ube Airport and Shin-Yamaguchi Station, a Shinkansen stop, Yuda Onsen's location in the center of the prefecture makes access to other tourist attractions in the prefecture convenient.
This area is a nexus for locally-brewed sake, mountain and sea food ingredients, and local specialties. Here, izakaya, restaurants, and many other kinds of shops let visitors enjoy Yamaguchi cuisine.
