The Narugo thermal springs locate in northwestern Miyagi Prefecture and consist of as many as 30 sources of springs, which are situated along the river Araogawa. We have 9 spas in the Narugo thermal springs as shown in fig. 1, namely Kawatabi (sulphur), Tanakayu (alkaline), Sin-Tanakayu (bitter), Akayu (alkaline, simple thermal), Motokurumayu (bitter), Sin-kurumayu (bitter), Taganoyu (acid and sulphur), Narugo-Yumoto (sulphur, alkaline, acid and bitter) and Kawarayu (mineral).
