It’s a go-to place for locals and visitors from nearby towns. It’s not surprising to see bathers even on a hot summer day. This is probably because the hot spring in Moseushi Onsen Peperu is believed to be a remedy for arthralgia, frozen shoulders, chronic fatigue, chronic skin disease, and many more.

The spring water contains sodium chloride which is also referred to as bicarbonate spring. Moseushi Onsen Peperu has an indoor and also an open-air bath with a relaxing view of the garden.

My family and I first visited Moseushi Onsen Peperu on August 6, 2022, which was my 278th day in Japan as an ALT under the JET Programme. We were one of those who came at noon since I figured there would be no one else in the onsen area save us. But, lo and behold, I was one of perhaps 20 males in the onsen section for men. Aside from that, I was most likely the youngest.
