When I read Tweets, Usuyuki-no-Yu seems to be popular.

There are 1 outdoor bath, 2 indoor baths, 1 cold bath and 1 sauna at a bathhouse. The outdoor bath is the size that about 4 people take a bath. Because the outdoor bath has a roof, it does not has a sence of openness. But Mt. Rishirifuji can be seen, so bathers can enjoy a scenery. The indoor baths have 2 bathtubs with different water temperature, and the lager indoor bath is the size that about 12 people take a bath and the small indoor bath is the size that about 6 people take a bath. It is very good that Mt. Rishirifuji can be seen through a window.
