Takinoyu, Osaki

(4.4/5 based on 110+ reviews on the web)
A single-story wooden house built on a slope, the Naruko Onsen public bath of Takinoyu provides the ultimate hot spring experience. Set in the midst of Kurikoma mountain range, this is the oldest and one of the leading hot spring shrines in the Tohoku area. Only a three-minute walk from Naruko Onsen station, this gender-separated establishment doesn't offer soap or shampoo, as its water has a natural sterilization effect. Soak in hot pools of various temperatures as the naturally heated water pours in from wooden pipes. The whitish, acidic-tasting water contains sulfur, giving your skin a great shine despite its strange appearance. Add Takinoyu and other attractions to your Osaki trip itinerary using our Osaki vacation builder.

  • It is a public bath arrive in 5 minutes on foot from naruko-Onsen station. One adult admission is a whopping 150 yen! It looks quaint, cozy and clean is because water is authentic! Small bath and large bath (hot water heat soaking) (deep, lukewarm) of or by two tubs only and 10 others will be crowded. However, the water is exactly what real hot springs, bath making history makes people feel. This is 150 available! And groaned until spring! There are no lockers. Must visit!

  • Fantastic hot springs. Approach the sulfur odor so you can see. I think 150 yen bathing fee is exceptional, but I received a free ticket hotel where they were staying. Feel the atmosphere of the building and Nice staff and nice spa town joint bathing place". I thought because the hot water felt hot to want to revisit in the snow of the season.

  • It is a public bath must be listed in the guide book. If you asked a parking lot is a bit shabby, and saying "the parking lot is no', reluctantly, hot water over parking ' of gave maps. Gackle has as its counterpart. "Water over parking ' is recommended to explore the town, and no parking fee, so. Water falls at the highest quality strippers, is also hot. Evoke nostalgic rustic feeling. It is not supposed to wash, face wash, body wash, I think, better. 泡datanai SOAP is strongly acidic, so it was written. Not too bothered who is accustomed to the baths, for I wonder?
