"Kuroyu Onsen" Spring source gushing out from underground
One of the signature features of this onsen, whose name translates as "black onsen," is its black hard-boiled eggs.
Fresh eggs are placed in nets and submerged in the onsen's hot spring source to boil.
After the eggs sit in the sulfurous onsen water, the hard-boiled eggs turn black on the outside from the chemical reactions.
The egg on the inside remains white, and the hard-boiled eggs are said to not spoil for a long time because of the minerals that help kill bacteria.
This directly translates into what Kuroyu believes the onsen can do to help the body.
