ReviewThis is the second station with a bathhouse built into it in Tohoku. The floors are tile and stone. There is a single hot bath, shower, dry sauna and a cold water bath here so there was at least some variety. The cold water bath is in an open air closed off patio that in the winter is extremely cold and refreshing. No need to jump in the water to cool off the air will do that for you. I personally liked the water here more than the water at Hotto Yuda, as it had a smoother silkier feel. The station building itself is beautiful and has a western feel to it.
