A lot of visitors came on weekdays when I visited here. Local people and campers seemed to take a bath. There are 2 indoor baths, 1 cold bath and 1 sauna at a bathhouse. A large indoor bath is the size that about 15 people take a bath, and the whirlpool bath is the size that about 5 people take a bath. Hot springs are cold spring, and are clear and light yellow and have neither taste nor smell. The sum total of the hot spring ingredients are 0.659 g. Shampoos and body soaps are provided at the bathhouse. In addition, a restroom and a free hair dryer are installed at a dressing room, too. A staying is possible, too.
