for 600 yen u can spend a couple of hrs in this amazing spa.

One of my best memories in Japan; some friends drove me there so i can t give directions but the website (

totally naked, separated by gender. as U get in u have to scrub urself at one of the dozens of showers available. Then go and sink in the super hot tubs and enjoy different kind of massaging water jets. When u had enough u can dare go outside: many more pools, grottos, bamboo pipes pouring water from 5 metres high.. just amazing. And when u ll eventually be fed up with the heat there s some resting areas with special bamboo carpet: lay down naked as u are and just relax watching the stars in the sky, no matter what the season is (did it this November).

Simply unforgettable.. and really worth it

it s not a turistic attraction but my friends told me that s what s left of the old traditional public bath. It s been nice to see locals of all ages enjoying this place. Touching moment: when I saw a blind teenager and his dad bathing and chatting together.

(ps:hairstilists and robochairs also available at the facilities)
