Only Manganese Oxidizing Creation Phenomenon in World -Onneto Hot Falls in Ashoro-

May 5th, 2017

Onneto Hot Falls (オンネトー湯の滝) is a basin of hot spring falls located in the south part of Lake Onneto (オンネトー). Hot springs fall from a steep cliff with about 20 m in height. Tourists could take a bath there in old days, but because the precious natural manganese was discovered and designated as a special natural monument in 2000, the bathing was prohibited. The only manganese oxidizing creation phenomenon seems to be seen in the world. By the way, guppies grew proliferously because of the hot springs, so an issue became a problem. Now the guppies are removing at a pond. It takes 20 minutes from a parking lot to here on foot. The parking lot is free of charge. There is a restroom near the parking lot.
