The following is a letter written by a student as a citizen of a host town, which says about the attraction of the hometown.
Ehime has "Dogo Onsen." It is a famous hot spring in Japan. Many tourists visit there every year. It is so good!
The Legend of White Heron:
Long, long ago, a white heron which had injured its leg found the hot spring. It came there to soak its leg in the spring water every day. After that, its injury was cured. People who heard about the story used the hot spring. There, they could relax and became rejuvenated. Also, sick people used the hot spring and they recovered from their illness!!
When you come to Japan, please take the time to visit this spring bath.
