Hot Springs and rewards in Ghost of Tsushima explained
Each Hot Spring you find will give Jin the option to reflect on his experiences so far, revealing some of his inner thoughts, and also grant a small increase to his maximum health.
They're fairly minor bonuses on their own, but they stack up quickly, giving you much more room to experiment in combat.
Not only that, but there's a special bonus if you complete them all - which, for spoiler reasons, we'll explain at the end of this page. You can jump to it by using the table of contents above.
There are 18 Hot Spring locations in total, and are dotted throughout the game's three main regions.
It's worth keeping in mind that if you're unsure of the specific location, keep your eye out for yellow birds, who'll lead you to secrets such as these listed.
