17. A liquid treatment device comprising:
a first electrode disposed in a liquid;
a second electrode disposed in the liquid;
an insulator disposed surrounding the first electrode through a space, the insulator having an opening portion at a position in contact with the liquid; and
a power supply that applies a voltage between the first electrode and the second electrode, wherein:
a gas is generated by vaporizing the liquid in the space by applying the voltage between the first electrode and the second electrode by the electric power supply, and
plasma is generated by causing an electric discharge when the gas is released from the opening portion into the liquid.
