Review

The onsen here smelt great. Smooth silky feeling though not that strong. Showers varied in temperature a bit too much ended up splashing some very hot water on myself and my daughter to her surprise by accident. Men's rotenburo has a nice view of the river.  Rooms are quite reasonably priced we stayed in a Japanese style room with no meals for around ¥8,000 for two adults and a 2 year old child.

Amazing super hot onsen-sento in the very retro feeling Yunotsu Onsen village. Long but enjoyable walk from the train station. The water here is really, really hot. Highly recommended.

Review

Closest bath to Tottori Station. Amazing water. Super, super hot bath. It's great if you go during the cold winter here. Close enough to get there and back while waiting for the next train leaving Tottori station. 1:30 should be enough time if you walk fast and don't spend too much time in the baths. I love this place.

Review

Small sento with hot spring water a short walk from Tottori Station. One large round bath and a small cold water bath. Somewhat new feeling. Nice friendly customers who all seem to go there every night. Stay at one of the cheaper hotels near by and take your bath here.

Review

Free rotenburo on the banks of the river that flows through Misasa. There is some privacy from the cars and people crossing the bridge, but the bath is for the most part exposed to the world. Amazing view of the river. I have been there twice once when it was snowing and a second time when it was raining. Both times were well worth the trouble of undressing in the small sheltered area for placing your belongings. There are two baths, the smaller one being hotter than the bigger one. There is also a foot bath on the other side of the privacy partition. This bath is mixed bathing, please be respectful of your fellow bathers. A public bath, paid and in a building, is located just across the street from the rotenburo for the faint of heart. There are also a few free parking spots there if you are taking a quick dip. The tourist information office and main bus stop are also in the same area. Highly recommended! It’s such an amazing experience.

No smell no flavor water. A bit cold feeing considering the well is 50.1 at the source. Highly radioactive.  The feeling comes afterwards.  Smooth clean skin feel. In the water it has a bit of a dry feel.

Review

Value priced simple business hotel with a natural hot spring bath. I think you need to stay in the hotel to use the bath. Not worth it to go here just for the bath anyhow.
