Better to stay than do day use as they might refuse day use customers if they are busy. There are two basement bathing areas with large rocks and outdoor baths that switch between men and women nightly. There is also a top floor view bath. Yumura Onsen is cooled from its 98c well temperature before used in the baths here. I found some very reasonable rates for single business hotel style rooms on Rakuten.

Review:City run hot spring with a very municipal feel. Three baths inside, a very hot main bath plus a bubble and jet bath that are a bit cooler. I would have loved a cold water bath here. The spring is Hamasaka onsen's quality water that is very firm on the skin from the minute you get in. For ¥300 you cannot go wrong here. There is also a well outside for boiling eggs. There is a supermarket with a Daiso by the post office a 5min walk away if you want to get some eggs and a net to boil them in.Also check out those large tanks in the parking lot. I believe those are used in the system that supplies houses in the old village with natural hot spring water for baths.

Review:Rural supersento. Not super slippery but the feeling comes out after the bath. Smell reminiscent of some American hot springs. Large outdoor bath made from a "kama" that was originally used by a sake brewer. Lots of sediment from the spring

Update Summer 2021:Tons of frogs all around when I was there. Pretty amazing experience. They have added a bucket of cold water to cool down with outside which is nice during the hot summers. *Hot Spring Data*Spring Type: Hydrogen sulfate spring - 硫酸塩泉Well Temperature: 51.3°CTemperature Type: Extra hot spring - 高温泉pH: 7.42pH Type: Neutral - 中性Osmotic Pressure: Low - 低張性Well Name: Shichikama No.3 Spring - 七釜第3号源泉
