Can anyone drill for a hotspring?
Obviously you would have to have the money to drill I believe about a kilometre down.

You'd need to have the rights to use that land (either owner or lessee status), and mining/hot spring rights, and each municipality has its own process for application for drilling.

In Japan or Out of Japan?

If in Japan now 10 to 100 million Yen/1000m deep
depends on geological layer hard or not and contractor.

Some river,under water fall near hot spring no need drill.

@ Glimpigumpi

Need Japanese beauty Onsen otaku? :)
She went to a lot of various locations also not only wild hot springs.

If need more pics and reports use below words for searching.
野湯 : no-yu/wild hot spring
秘湯 : hi-tou/secret(rare) hot spring
(include wild and managed deep forest/mountain small ones both)
危険 : ki-ken/danger,dangerous

Basically 野湯 is seasonal by access inconvenient by road conditions mostly
and no managed hot water temp sometimes pretty hot without colder water for cooling down.
Esepecially deep forest/mountain ones sometimes met/find dangerous wild animals/insects.
(hungry bear 熊,poison snake マムシ,poison bee/Vespinae スズメバチ and more/not so many species)
Also out of radio/phone wave range "dead zone/area" need enough survival skills.
Onsen Gas also very dangerous especially "硫化水素/hydrogen sulfide" if over "400 ppm" you will die within one hour.
This is "Caution" plate sample with EN/CN for climbers.
No management area no such kindly warning signs.
I believe what you don't copy him.

Big thank you MGM!!!
Those are most interesting links and infos (onsen beauty is of course great too and has very interesting locations in her blog! :-)

Well, yeah, i am also a little bit afraid of スズメバチ, hope they will never get me, especially when i walk around in Tohoku woods and mountains area next summer... Also i saw in many of those blogs, people really wear good equipment for walking through the jungle, things which i probably not have one me...

The gas mask onsen person is really fun. ^_^
I would like to see the faces of the policeman at the airport customs office, if they find out i would have such a gasmask in my luggage and if they then ask me, what i need it for and i answer: "Onsen". Would be for sure fun!
So no, i dont indent to do it...

So thank you again MGM!
