This place got renovated as well. its much cleaner now... it seems like the whole of Hakuba is getting renovated and new shops appearing everywhere... Anyway... I think most the onsen water actually comes from this onsen... so the quality of the onsen was always the reason for people to come here... the only complaint was... it was dirty and... More

Totally rustic, "shabby" set-up, but the best water in town. Large rectangular outdoor wooden tub totally encrusted with minerals. Salty-brown opaque iron water 'will cure what ails ya.' Cool water tub inside. 600 yen grants you entrance and an embossed wash towel. Yes! (Coupons not accepted.)

No, the blue buttons are not for men and pink for women! I think blue is a standard adult (full price) and the pink and yellow buttons are for maybe seniors or... More
