Erwin von Baltz, who came to Japan as a professor at Tokyo Medical School in 1876, had the idea of using the hot spring of Owakudani for medial rehabilitation. He proposed to the Department of Internal Affairs to have a large bath facility built. This proposal was turned down, and Baltz disappointedly went back to Germany. In this photo, there is a man heading toward a shack. Above steam is emitted.
