As for the Takeyama-Kogen Onsen, simple warm spring with moor hot spring are gushed out. The moor spring is brown spring that gushes out from a peat bed or a lignitic bed, and contains a lot of organics of plant origin, so it has slippery touch, and is good for a skin, and is called beauty hot spring (美人の湯), too. The moor spring is different from usual types of the hot springs, and the hot springs are recognized as the moor spring if those contain humus. By the way, a famous tourist attraction in the Kita-hiroshima is Mitsui Outlet Park (三井アウトレットパーク). Speaking of tasty restaurants in the Kita-hiroshima, Sobakiri Nakamura (そば切り なかむら), ARTLACZE, Kururu-no-Mori (くるるの杜), Pattiserie Montenver, and Kaitenzushi Sealand (海転寿司シーランド) are popular in particular. I ate foods at the ARTLACZE and the Kururu-no-Mori, and those were tasty.
