It was quite recently when the long-established Asakawa Hot Spring closed the doors of its business. Now, the new owner plans to launch the Ashiyu (foot bath) Project with architect Kazuyo Sejima as its first move toward reviving the hot spring. Right next to this ashiyu stands an old wisteria tree. Visitors will be able to enjoy the wisteria blossoms next to the ashiyu. The project will be completed and unveiled on Oct.15. A new destination of “Art X Hot Spring” will make an appearance in Daigo.
