Takinoyu, Osaki

4.4
#3 of 21 in Spas in Miyagi Prefecture
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. For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Osaki holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Takinoyu and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • The baths at 150 yen. For many visiting tourists around the hotel check-in after first, with patterns, so that before you go is a good idea I think. You may break from the hot water is hot, hot, fine and dandy, so lukewarm in the back. Bring a towel!

Clerk, I think is always in front of the entrance in the dressing room and toilet, hot-spring is back! No shower, no SOAP, shampoo there is only few taps after bath's two! Simple and very nice would go out not just parking place in advance
