another proposal was to use the same symbol as for normal springs in a red

I can add a leisure=onsen to the proposal, which would take the onsen

But I need clarification regarding the meaning of the word "onsen" :

* does onsen water always come from natural hot springs?
* there are many natural, undelopped hot springs in Japan.
  Are those also called "onsen"?
