The Karuruse Hot Bath, Nagasaki, c. 1910.

“Unzen is the collective name of the three hamlets of Furu-Unzen, Shin-yu, and Kojigoku, lying near the wonderful solfatra of Ojigoku in a hollow of the range called Unzen-take. Each hamlet stands about 10 min. from the other … This remarkable spot, 2,550 ft. above the sea, noted for its sulphur springs, its varied and beautiful scenery, and its bracing air, has become a sanatorium, not only for Nagasaki and neighborhood, but for the residents of the China treaty port. From the Japanese point of view, a course of these upper springs is considered necessary to effect a complete recovery after the patient has passed through the routine of the mineral baths at Obama.”
