The physical and mental demands of combat require test and recovery as every warrior soon learns. Fortunately, Tsushima is strewn with serene and beautiful Hot Springs. Seek them out to ease fatigue from battle.
Every Hot Spring increases your maximum health.
― In-game description.
Jin Sakai in a hot spring
Hot springs, or (温泉), are locations where onsen Jin Sakai can rest to increase his maximum health. While at a hot spring, Jin will reflect on a player-chosen story element or character. There are a total of 18 hot springs in Tsushima, and resting at all of them unlocks the Fundoshi armor set. Iki has an additional two, bringing the total to 20.

Reflections [ ]
At a hot spring, players will choose to reflect on one of two provided topics. Topics are randomly selected from the list below (excluding those which have been reflected on already).
A Lover's Touch
Wish I had some company in here. It's been too long...
A Warrior's Burden
I wish being a samurai were as easy as slipping into warm water.
Changes In My Uncle
Uncle seems so much older. Maybe the war aged him... Or I never noticed before.
Clearing My Mind
Stop thinking, Jin. For one moment, just stop thinking...
Only thing I'm missing is a strong drink... Bowl of miso... Some sleep... A woman...
Feels like I haven't slept in days. If only I had time for a short nap...
Exile From The Samurai
The samurai... my uncle... I can never go back... I have to accept that.
When the Mongols are gone... I'm going to stuff myself with Shinano pears... Fresh tuna... And sweet seaweed from Azamo.
Freedom With Shimura
You should be here, Uncle. When the island's free, we'll spend a week soaking in these waters...
Only thing that would make this better is a jar of Kenji's sake. But then he'd never stop talking...
Maybe I'll take that Mongol bastard's head. Or drown him. No... I'll put the torch to him. Just like he did to Lord Adachi.
Mother used to take us to Omi Lake with Lady Masako and her children. We played in the water... While mother and Masako traded funny stories over tea.
People look to samurai for guidance... To keep them safe... And act with honor... On and off the battlefield. I can't forget that.
I'll never forget the day he was killed. I could have saved my father. If only I was older, stronger... If I wasn't so afraid.
How will people remember the Sakai name? As heroes of Tsushima... or fugitives, forgotten in the shadows...?
Mother spent her last weeks in the hot springs. Even then, she'd never get her hair wet.
I thought they'd killed Lord Shimura. After everything he's done for me, everything he taught me... I can't lose my uncle. I won't.
The warm air, the cherry blossoms... Spring can't come soon enough.
We used to get into so much trouble... Stealing sake, dressing like maidens... Trying to sail for Iki Island... My uncle always said, "Stay away from the demon child Ryuzo."
We grew up together, but you threw it all away. How long will it last, Ryuzo? How long until the Mongols get tired of your excuses?
You could have been here right now, Ryuzo. Bragging about how many Mongol heads you collected. Telling your awful jokes... You gave me no choice.
Saving My Uncle
When Uncle is free, we'll eat his favorite meal... vegetables sweetened with mirin on a bed of rice.
Sensei Ishikawa should visit this place. I wonder if he's ever relaxed in his life... He's strung tighter than his bowstring.
I didn't know you long... But you were brave, Taka. As brave as any samurai I've met... I hope you knew that.
The Fallen Samurai
I lost good friends on the beach. Kasai, Matsudo... Hongo. I won't forget what you sacrificed for our home.
The Mongol Invaders
Everywhere I look... They're taking prisoners, burning homes... Slaughtering our people. They think they broke our spine by killing the samurai... But they haven't won. Not yet.
The Yarikawa Rebellion
Father and Uncle recovered at a nearby onsen after they stopped the Yarikawa rebellion. Was it this one?
Saved from the battlefield by a thief... (chuckle) What will my uncle think of Yuna?
My Dead Horse
<Name>... <Name>... You were a brave companion... A good friend... Maybe I'll see you soon...
After Honor and Ash
My Uncle's Fate
(Sigh) My uncle deserved a warrior's death. It's what he wanted. I did the right thing...
After The Tale of Lord Shimura (kill ending)
My Uncle's Fate
I couldn't kill him. Maybe in another life, but not now... Even after everything, he is still my family.
After The Tale of Lord Shimura (spare ending)
