A fossil of Elephas Namadicus was excavated in 1969, and the Elephas Namadicus is a symbol of the Churui because complete skeleton was first succeeded in restoring in Japan. Hot springs were succeeded in drilling in 1992, so the hot spring place is named the Naumann Onsen. By the way, the Hotel Arco236 is close to Elephas Namadicus Museum (ナウマン象記念館), Elephas Namadicus Park (ナウマン公園), art objects of the Elephas Namadicus, Elephas Namadicus Park Campsite (ナウマン公園キャンプ場) and a park golf course.
