Review:This is a very interesting set up. The hot spring is inside an elder care home but open to day users. The spring is amazing feeling and has a dark brown color. I went here after a very difficult hike and this bath was completely refreshing and surprising high quality. The sauna and cold water baths were also well built. Being in an elder care house, the bath here was pretty basic in design. The design felt like it would fit perfectly in a business hotel. They sell 2L bottles of the spring water to take home and put into your own bath like bath salts--not for drinking.

Review:I gave this sento 4 stars on Google, however unless you fit into either of these two categories you should NEVER go to this sento. 1) You are a local who has been going to this sento for your entire life. 2) You are an extreme sento academic. You study, love and treasure every last broken tile and pile of built up dust. This is not a place for even your most hardened sento fan. I loved it. It did pass the Wakayama Prefectural Public Bath Sanitation check in 平成28.
