Two types of hot springs continuously fill the tub with natural hot spring water. In addition, there is a hot spring called “Bijin no Yu,” which is beneficial for recovering from fatigue, scratches, and burns, as well as having a whitening effect.

While it may seem like hot springs are a place for leisure activities, the Japanese method is to soak in warm water slowly to heal tired muscles. It is good to take a relaxing bath in the hot spring at night or to take a morning bath to awaken your body. You can visit the bathhouse any time you wish.

There are two 100% free private hot springs available. They both have indoor and outdoor baths, so even large groups can enjoy soaking.
