Takinoyu, Osaki

(110+ reviews on the web)
Thermal Spa
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 scenery and hot springs. Do not wash your hair and body wash or shower. The front side is hot, deep bathtub of lukewarm. Deep bathtub, two step, so do not know not only taught and so will they. When you go up very little. Is not visible in the steamy. Snow on the day could warm the body.
