There are some baths surrounded by rocks in the sea. Hot springs are sodium chloride sulfate spring, and are clear and colorless and have neither taste nor smell. I supposed that the hot springs were salty. However, the hot springs in a large bath was not salty. It was unexpected. For depending a great deal on both high and low tides, it depends on luck whether visitors can take a bath. In addition, nude bathing is recommend, but bathers can take a bath in their swimsuits. A dressing room and a restroom are established, too.
