Ibusuki Hot Sand BathLocated on the island of Kyūshū in Kagoshima Prefecture, the Ibusuki Sand Bath is a great afternoon adventure. The sand bath is a therapeutic immersion into the naturally heated sand along the coastline. The warmth of the sand is thanks to the nearby volcanic activity and bathers spend 10 to 15 minutes buried in the hot sand with only their faces exposed—soon to emerge rejuvenated.
