ReviewSomewhat strange feeling supersento in Kishiwada. Great cold sauna. More like a big sento than a supersento. This place uses a two tiered charge system. If you just want to use the normal indoor baths there is a lower price. For the full price you get a plastic widget that you can use to open a door and access the better baths. The showers in the back also have free shampoo and body soap. I was indifferent to this place. Next door is a Marugen ramen restaurant which has some super spicy ramen which was the highlight of the evening.

Review:Hotel, outdoor resort and day use hot spring in the hills above Kishiwada city. Hiked up the adjacent valley then down this valley to get here. It's about 6 to 7 km from the top of Mt. Izumi Katsuragi. Very quiet on the Friday afternoon I visited. It looks like there has been some remodeling done recently in the baths and including the foot bath I am writing this post from. The spring is noticeable, but of average quality with a slippery feel. The baths are basic but there is a cold water so it worked for me after a 25 km hike. Accessible by a free shuttle bus and paid city bus.
