Onsen Treatment (Touji)
Touji is the practice of staying at an onsen for a long time (a least a week, or longer) as a medical treatment for a particular condition. Dating back to the times before doctors were common in Japan, there was the custom of bathing in, or drinking, onsen waters in order to treat illnesses. Even to this day the practice is continuing as people are coming to the onsen to find peace of mind, and relaxation, as well as raise their metabolism to treat conditions related to the demands of modern life
