Tsuta Hot Spring is a lone "secret hot spring" in the 奥瀬 Oirase woods of Aomori.

It dates back to the time of
kyuuan 久安 Kyuan, from 1145.7.22 - 1151.1.26 in the Heian period.
The time of Emperor Konoe 近衛天皇.


- quote -
Tsuta Onsen is nestled deep in the southern part of the Hakkoda Mountains in Aomori Prefecture, embraced in the stillness of a Japanese beech forest.
Here, time in the forest passes slowly and serenely.
Time for a beech seedling to grow into a tree and for the tree to finally return to the earth.
Time for the rich forest to offer a rich source of water.
Time for the wet marshland to turn into a soft forest bed.
One minute in the city passes differently from a minute in a hot spring inn in the forest.
For now, turn away from the rush of daily life and enjoy the slow passage of time in the forest.

久安の湯 Kyuan no Yu
This bath was renovated in 1990. In the olden days, the large baths at Japanese inns were used by both men and women at the same time. Now men and women take a bath at different times. This bath is popular for its cozy and traditional atmosphere. In the wash area is a tank in which freshwater fish of the area swim.

In the morning and after 9 in the evening for women.
From 13:00 to 20:00 by men.

Emperor Konoe 近衛天皇 Konoe Tennō
(June 16, 1139 – August 22, 1155)

was the 76th emperor of Japan, according to the traditional order of succession.

Konoe's reign spanned the years from 1142 through 1155.
Konoe was named heir shortly after he was born in 1139; and he was proclaimed emperor at the age of 3.



During Konoe's reign, the Enshō (Superiority of Duration) Temple was built.
After this, successive emperors no longer build Imperial-prayer temples.

Emperor Konoe's reign lasted for 13 years: 2 years in the nengō Kōji, 1 year in Ten'yō, 6 years in Kyūan, 3 years in Ninpei, and 2 years in Kyūju.

The years of Konoe's reign are more specifically identified by more than one era name or nengō.

Kōji (1142–1144)
Ten'yō (1144–1145)
Kyūan (1145–1151)
Ninpei (1151–1154)
Kyūju (1154–1156)


- - - Ten'yō gannen or Ten'yō 1,

Kyūan 1, in the 8th month (1145): The mother of former Emperor Sutoku (also known as "Taikenmon-In") died.

Kyūan 2, in the 2nd month (1146), Konoe visited Toba-no-Hōō.
Kyūan 2, in the 12th month (1146), Konoe joined in a celebration honoring Sesshō Fujiwara no Tadamichi (the regent) on his 58th birthday.[6] This event was important because, in each sexagenary cycle, the first and the fifty-eighth years were considered to be auspicious according to Chinese astrological principles.

Kyūan 4, in the 6th month (1148: The imperial palace was consumed by flames.

Kyūan 6, in the 1st month (1150): Konoe assumed the role of a mature adult; and he married Fujiwara-no Tokoku, who had been raised by Sadaijin Yorinaga. Tokoku was the daughter of Dainagon Taira-no Kiyomori. This bride became Kōkōgō (皇皇后) or first empress.

Kyūan 6, in the 3rd month (1150): Konoe married again, this time to "Feï-si," who had been raised by Sesshō Fujiwara-no Tadamichi. She was the daughter of Dainagon Fujiwara-no Koremichi. This bride became Chūgū (中宮) or second empress. Konoe was so very much enamoured of this second wife that he neglected his first wife, which caused discord in the kugyō, especially between Tadamichi and Yorinaga.
Kyūan 6, in the 12th month (1150): Sesshō Minamoto-no Tadamichi, resigns his position and is named Daijō Daijin. In this same month, Minamoto-no Yoshikane became head of the Ashikaga clan in Shimotsuke province.
