Mimasaka City is one of the leading hot spring countries in western Japan, with abundant nature. Among them, Yunogo Onsen is a famous hot spring (*) with a history of more than 1200 years. It is said that Jikaku Ennin was led by Shirasagi to discover it, and it has been popular with people as another name, “Sagi no Yu”, Yuji no Yu, and Bihada no Yu. There are three museums in the city: the Japan Museum of Contemporary Toys, the Music Box Yumekan, and the toy box of the day, the Showakan.

In addition to local mountain products, you can also enjoy seafood from both the Seto Inland Sea and the Sea of Japan. (* Spring quality: sodium, calcium chloride spring)
