The public onsen here, mentioned by another reviewer, is an incredible find!!! 500 yen, with sulphurous goodness and blue, milky water baths all over the place. You can just feel those mineral rich waters working their healing effects, or maybe that's just the cardiovascular strain...More

You do not have to book before you go there. It costs only JPY500 to use Onsen. It opens from 10:00 - 21:00 in August.
