Yoshioka Onsen 吉岡温泉
Tottori 鳥取市 - part of the Inaba Onsen Resorts 因幡温泉郷

About 1000 years ago
at the foot of Mount Jubusan 鷲峰山 there lived the elder Ashioka 葦岡長者. There was also a beautiful girl who suddenly disfigured with scars by an epidemic. The elder tried all kinds of medicine to help her, but nothing worked.
One evening at sunset the statue of Yakushi Nyorai from Shobuyama 菖蒲山 appeared in his dream. The Buddha of Healing told him to look below the willow tree for sacred hot spring - and as you can guess - the girl was healed and so are many more nowadays.
The grave of the Elder is still there, and about 13 hot spring hotels are now doing business.
