Hot Spring Facilities for Day Trip Visitors
Kanno Onsen in Shikaoi

When I read Tweets, Kanno Onsen seems to be popular.

It is a special featurea that hot springs gush out at every bathtub. Each hot spring analysises are placed on a wall, too. Bathhouses are divided into two bathhouses, Inankuru (イナンクル) and Unakaru (ウヌカル), and Sex segregated bathing and the bathhouse for men replace the bathhouse for women every day. The bathhouse of lodging facility, Icaropocca-no-Yu onsen (イカロ・ポッカの湯), is same, too. When I visited here, I was able to take a bath at Inankuru and Icaropocca-no-Yu.
