Review:Named after a local style of small style or racing boat with a history from China. The bathhouse in on the second floor of a local goods shop, restaurant, leisure boat parking facility in Aioi city near the Okayama border. The building is decorated in a Chinese looking style and very bright. It's located in a harbour and is classified as a Umi no Eki (海の駅) as compared to the more common Michi no Eki roadside stations. I guess you can park your boat here, have dinner and take a bath.The onsen is a radioactive one and not too apparent while bathing in it, but it leaves a nice feeling on the skin once you get out. There is an outdoor bath but it just looks out on a warehouse across the channel. Not much to see at night. Very simple and very well used but descent. Not worth driving all the way from Nishinomiya for this one. Since it's the only natural hot spring in the vicinity so if you happen to be in the neighborhood looking for a soak it is the only option.
Interesting place.
