There are 2 open-air baths, 2 indoor baths, 1 whirlpool bath, 1 cold bath and 1 sauna at a bathhouse. Each open-air baths and each indoor baths are different in the water temperature of hot springs. Fresh hot springs overflow from bathtubs freely. The open-air bath had much yield of the hot springs, and I can take a footbath on an outlet. It will be abundant quantity of the hot springs. Unfortunately, at the open-air baths, a scenery is not good because the open-air bath is surrounded by blind fence.
