I went here twice - definitely a local favourite as very few foreigners present. You tend to have to mimick others if this is your first experience of an onsen as there’s really not much in English.

Great view of the mountains and a nice old-style bath house. But I get the idea that they don't like foreigners much, they didn't seem so welcoming. Other tourists were pretty loud so don't go at peak hour, which is about 5pm-7pm. The Japanese tend...More
