ReviewA fairly basic supersento in an industrial neighborhood of Kadoma city, this member of the Yumoto Iccho chain doesn't even compare to its sister Neyajyu no Yu. The interior is stark and bland. There isn't much in terms of decor. It felt more like a large bath in a mid-range business hotel or a gym. The rotenburo also lacked much in way of decor. The central garden was nice, but it wasn't enough. The baths themselves are fine. A centerpiece is the large rotenburo bath which has a deep, shallow, and extra shallow part. My daughter really loved playing around in that extra shallow area. The tub baths are filled with straight well water at a good cool down temperature. The spring was ok, definitely noticeable as spring water, but not that effective. There were lots of kids, so don't worry about bringing yours and the restaurant seems to be the local drinking spot, so don't worry about downing a few chu-his. I had a good impression from the staff and customers. Kadoma no Yu is being remodeled in March of 2013 so I'm going to have to return.
**UPDATE**After the remodel the baths were pretty much the same but they added a carbonated water bath and cleaned everything up. Nice place overall.
**UPDATE 2019**Name has been changed to Yukai no Yu - Kadoma. Company was bought out by the Yukai no Yu resort chain. The former name was Yumoto Icchou Kado no Yu.

Review*Closed* Natural spring with decent water and good selection of clean, nicely designed baths. A bit pricey at ¥1,000 and also a bit small but overall very good. Not surprised its closed. I thought the cost was prohibitive considering other places in the area offered more baths for cheaper. This place seems more geared to the full day and ganbanyoku style bathers.
Update 2019: Closed as of November 2018, this is a chain with two other supersento in Mie. I did not know that.
