Set amongst several small shopping arcades you can be forgiven if you miss this ancient site. The current building is over 100 years old with special entrance for the emperor but the story goes back several millennia

We had been to onsens before but still found this one, with its elegant refinements, a bit mystifying. Once we worked out the drill we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and would gladly, and less nervously, go again. Here is the drill as we understand it. We...More
