Review: This is a larger supersento entertainment and relaxation complex sandwiched between two Aeon shopping centers. Thanks to the location, this is a popular place on the weekends. You can tell the use by how scuffed the paint is in the lockers.The spring here is surprisingly impressive, something I have noticed for Mie Prefecture supersento. It is so good; I recommend this place to people who are just into trying out different natural springs. Besides the spring-fed baths, there is a full complement of jets, carbonated, and cold-water baths. There are also three saunas: dry, salt, and steam. The latter has a lovely foot bath decorated with geodes cemented to the wall.Overall, this is a well-used and popular supersento with a quality spring worth visiting if you are in the area.Visit Date: June 2022*Hot Spring Data*

Review: Walking up here from the station is longer than it seems and there is not a sidewalk for most of it. Watch out as the cars drive quite fast and the road is very dark. However, the walk is worth it as the spring here is surprisingly good! I would go out of my way to go back here. Considering that there is not much here in terms of baths, that means something. Inside there is single bath with a bubble and outside there is a second small bath. Besides that, there is a small sauna that is accessed by walking by all the lockers in the changing room. Another oddity in an already odd place is bridge that lets you walk over the main indoor bath to access the outdoor area. It seems that this bridge was put in after the fact too. A last weird thing is the mirroring they have on the windows to keep the sun out. It makes it a bit vertigo inducing. So, all that said, I still loved the spring here and would go back if given the opportunity. Oh! One last oddity! This facility is run by the JA farmers cooperative and there is a JA run market and restaurant at the same place. Visit Date: January 2021 *Hot Spring Data*Spring Type: Simple spring - 単純温泉Well Temperature: 52.4°C
