Atami Station 

[Ieyasu no Yu]

Warm up and enjoy a relaxing timeout at a public footbath in front of Atami Station

In the Edo period, many feudal lords would visit Atami for some hot-spring healing. One such personage who loved Atami's hot springs was none other than the Shogun himself, Lord Tokugawa Ieyasu. He is said to have taken two of his children along on a visit to Atami in March 1604. Located in front of Atami Station, Ieyasu no Yu is a public footbath filled with natural hot spring water (with additional water). It was created as a commemorative project to celebrate the 400th anniversary of Tokugawa Ieyasu's visit to Atami. Anyone can just go ahead and enjoy a quick soak while waiting for the train, or just to take a break. The bottom of the bathtub is covered with pebbles, giving your feet a comfortable massage when you walk on them.
