Name origin


While it is clear the name of this stage is a play on "Hot Springs", the origin of the "cha" part is unknown. Unless it was added whimsically, perhaps it is used to preserve the -ch sound the Japanese name used; this is -cha, not -chi though the onomotopoeia achacha exists for something hot. Alternatively it could literally be the dated word "hotcha" in American English for approval or delight. While this word is still used, it may now be used facetiously. Note it is worth stressing that Old Man Lobber features in this stage; and the first uses of this word may have orignated in the 1930s.[1]


あちち (achichi), like あち (achi) is a word stereotypically used by children for expressing something "hot". An おんせん (onsen) is a (Japanese-style) hot spring or spa.
