Effects of Sulfurous Onsen

We have recently come to understand the effects of hydrogen sulfide,
or "sulfur". Just by sniffing it, the swelling associated with rheumatism can be lessened.
Also, we know the effects it can have on the brain, and it is possible that
it has a preventative effect in regard to dementia.
It also prevents the loss of nerve cells, and may also play a role in remedying strokes.

Onsen Pioneers

There are a handful of legends regarding who first discovered onsen. Some say that a traveling buddhist monk was the first, but since animals like monkeys, deer, and cranes have long used them to nurse injuries, it's also said they were the first.

温泉の発見は、動物が湯につかり傷を治していたのを見つけて発見したとか、弘法大使のような高僧が発見したとか、様々な言い伝えがあります。ちなみに発見した動物で多いのが猿鹿鶴の順。
