Kuma-no-Yu

Kuma-no-Yu is natural open-air baths. There are 1 mixed bathing open-air bath and 1 open-air bath for women. Hot springs had long history, and people seemed to take a bath since the Edo period. A lot of local people and tourists visit here. However, on the day when I visited here, something is wrong with the hot springs, and I was not able to take a bath. It is shame!
