There are 1 open-air bath and 1 indoor bath at a bathhouse. Because the bathhouse was surrounded by glass windows, I felt comfortable at a sun‐drenched bathhouse. Hot springs overflowed from the indoor bath in succession. I never got tired of a view. In addition, the hot springs were gushing out from rocks placed at the indoor bath, and the hot spring ingredients precipitated on the rocks.

The open-air bath looked like a garden pond. Blind walls obstructed my view, and I felt like an aquarium fish. The open-air bath was hotter than the indoor bath.
