Keywords: Radiocarbon age, Hot spring

In this study, tritium (3H) and radiocarbon (14C) ages were carried out for sources of three hot springs, Inubohsaki Hotel "Kuroshio-no-yu", Inubohsaki Kanko Hotel "Shio-no-yu", and Taiyo-no-sato "Byobugaura Onsen", in order to elucidate their groundwater ages. From the 3H concentration, three sources of Inubohsaki Onsen were old groundwater with a residence time of over 60 years. Furthermore, the 14C concentration measurement indicated that the net 14C ages were from 10,000 to 22,000 yrs BP.
